After giving the Chicago Cubs 3.1 innings of (crappy) relief yesterday, Jeff Stevens was thanked, and sent down to AAA Iowa. Taking his place in the bullpen is Justin Berg, formerly a member of the pen last year. The predominant reason for the move is probably not the crappy performance of Stevens, but instead is the worn out bullpen. Berg has a 3.00 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP in 6 innings this year for Iowa, and got the call over lefties John Gaub and Scott Maine, as well as prospect Chris Carpenter.
