Justin Berg is Headed Back to Iowa

Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Transactions

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.
