Roster Move: David Ross to Bereavement List, Matt Szczur Back to Chicago

Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Transactions

Here’s hoping Matt Szczur didn’t get on a plane yesterday, land, and then immediately have to turn around. The life of a 26th man, I guess.


Today, the Chicago Cubs made a short-term roster move, bringing Matt Szczur back from Iowa – he was just sent there yesterday – to take the place of David Ross, who goes on the bereavement list:

Miguel Montero and Kyle Schwarber will handle catching duties until then, and the Cubs are not projected to face a lefty starting pitcher through Wednesday, in any event.


Szczur can provide some speed off of the bench, and late-game defense in the outfield if necessary.
