Brian Schlitter to Chicago, Jeff Stevens to Iowa

Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Transactions

The Chicago Cubs middle reliever shuffle continues as today the team activated Brian Schlitter from the 15-day DL, and sent Jeff Stevens back to AAA Iowa. Stevens couldn’t get his ERA under six, making him a relatively obvious choice to head out – although, Schlitter hasn’t yet been terribly impressive.


Semi-relatedly: still waiting on word about Esmailin Caridad. It’s a bit concerning that he went down in May with what was thought at the time to be minor arm issues, and we *literally* haven’t heard a word about him since.
