The two pitchers hadn’t contributed much to the Cubs lately, so the roster gets a significant shake-up.
Chicago Cubs Transactions
The move opens up a spot for Austin Jackson, and could be the end of Olt’s time with the Cubs.
The Cubs have just picked up an outfielder for the stretch run. This is a great move.
Rodney takes Zac Rosscup’s spot in the bullpen, and Brian Schlitter’s spot on the 40-man roster.
Ross will be out at least three days, or up to a week.
The 30-year-old utility man has good speed and defensive versatility. Could be useful in September.
One of the best base-stealers in the game, Berry could be a great bench piece next month.
Still just 27, Cahill has had a really rough year.
The big, lefty bat is the newest Cubs prospect.
La Stella will continue working at AAA Iowa.
The Cubs get a speed/defense option off the bench for a few days.
Montero doesn’t start today, but the lineup rotating is already happening.
