Brian Schlitter to Chicago, Jeff Stevens to Iowa

Chicago Cubs Transactions

The Chicago Cubs were in need of a fresh arm after two straight days of heavy bullpen usage, so they’ve sent Jeff Stevens – holder of a 2.81 ERA this year – down to Iowa in favor of AAA closer Brian Schlitter.

Schlitter has a 4.09 ERA this year, and has struck out 31 in 33 innings. Shrug.
