The Cubs had to send somebody out in order to activate Doug Davis for his start this evening, and the unfortunate soul is reliever Justin Berg. Berg had a 4.09 ERA over 11 innings and six appearances in his brief stint with the team.
The move was expected, and demonstrates how committed the Cubs are to keeping Marcos Mateo – and his 5.40 ERA – in the big league pen. He’s allowed an atrocious 27 baserunners in 15 innings, but he’s striking out over a guy per inning.
