After a long time on the shelf, Byrd finally returns to the Cubs.
The man who dominated the Cubs both as an opponent and a teammate was released today.
Mateo shores up the bullpen (at least insofar as he physically has an arm that he can use), and LeMahieu heads to where he probably should have been all along.
Johnson didn’t have a concussion, and Colvin will get regular at bats in Iowa.
After flying up the Cubs’ prospect chart last Fall, Carpenter has fallen off the map this year. Until today.
Maybe the bullpen won’t be an excuse to leave Matt Garza in for 150 pitches today.
But will Colvin actually get some starts?
God remains wrathful and the Cubs remain confusing about their prospect strategy.
Protip: If you want to remain healthy and on a Major League roster, don’t play center field for the Chicago Cubs.
Lopez will join the Cubs tomorrow – as in, the big team. He’s got to be a better option than the Berg/Coleman/Maine connection, right? Berg will be sent to AAA in a corresponding move.

Tyler Colvin’s replacement is slightly younger, slightly better defensively, quite a bit faster, but with no pop. Might be a better, you know, hitter, though.
The Chicago Cubs finally pulled the trigger on the much-anticipated demotion of outfielder, Tyler Colvin.
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 […]
After giving the Chicago Cubs 3.1 innings of (crappy) relief yesterday, Jeff Stevens was thanked, and sent down to AAA Iowa. Taking his place in the bullpen is Justin Berg, formerly a member of the pen last year. The predominant reason for the move is probably not the crappy performance of Stevens, but instead is […]
On the heels of twin rotation injuries – Randy Wells and Andrew Cashner both went on the disabled list last week, and neither is expected back for another three to four weeks – the Cubs today signed 38-year-old pitcher Ramon Ortiz to a minor league deal. You may remember Ortiz from such successful seasons as […]
