Damn it.

Also not sure why they didn’t bring Hancock back.

Also, it's telling how many people have gotten at least a token shot at bullpen innings before Maples this year. He's made it blindingly obvious he's not ready, but still a precipitous fall.

Damn. It seemed like Carl was being used a bit too much lately.

Mazzoni is so bad I don't understand that part of the move. Unless they want Hancock on the Iowa roster not pitching for now.

He’s been very good in 21.2 IP at Iowa:

Really gonna need Justin Wilson to step up while Edwards is out. Cishek and Pedro can’t do all the heavy lifting in the 6-8 innings and Cishek himself is already overworked.


I thought we already could use another dependable bullpen arm even with health, now I really think we need one. It sucks Maples can’t figure it out with his stuff but whatever.

Obviously they aren't going to rush Darvish back, but this is a spot Monty could help as well.

Yeah, hell even Eddie Butler wouldn’t be totally useless right now since he can soak up multiple innings. Even though I really think he died and they haven’t told us yet since there’s been nothing about him anywhere.

Joe is definitely going to kill Cishek now.

I'm at least borderline hopeful that this is just to give him a bit of a rest and we're employing the DL like the Dodgers have done recently.

Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Carl Edwards Jr. (shoulder) allowed two runs over two-thirds of an inning Monday in his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Iowa.

Edwards issued two walks, hit a batter, and threw a wild pitch to force in a run. He allowed one hit and a walk while striking out two batters during his first rehab appearance last Friday. He's said to be healthy, but the Cubs are discussing the next step for him. Edwards has been sidelined for over a month with right shoulder inflammation.

As long as his velocity was/is fine I don’t really care. He’ll figure it out enough, if he’s not back until the weekend or next week now it’s not that big of a deal with the offdays this week the bullpen shouldn’t be overly tired.
