Pedro Strop to the Disabled List, Zac Rosscup Back to Chicago

zac rosscupAs discussed this morning, Chicago Cubs reliever Pedro Strop left last night’s game with a groin issue, and it turned out to be a “moderate” issue.

That is to say, he’s got a moderate groin strain, which is expected to keep him out upwards of three to four weeks (Bruce Miles). In his place, the Cubs recalled lefty reliever Zac Rosscup, whom they just sent down this past weekend in the flurry of Arrieta-Sweeney-related roster moves. Normally, a player optioned like Rosscup wouldn’t have been eligible to return for 10 days (you can’t just yo-yo a guy daily), but, when he’s replacing an injured player, he can come right back.

So, Rosscup is back. He remains a potential long-term piece in the bullpen, one with great stuff, so it will be nice to see him possibly get an extended shot.

Of course, he could be sent right back out when Jose Veras (oblique rehab, already had one rehab outing) returns, or when the Cubs go back down to seven relievers.
