Here Comes Samardzija

Via ESPNChicago.com:
The Chicago Cubs will announce that right-handed pitcher Jeff Samardzija has been recalled from Triple-A Iowa and will go into the bullpen, replacing right-handed pitcher Jose Ascanio, according to a league source.

Samardzija has been starting at Iowa, and he's done well, adding a more effective slider to his repertoire of a fastball and a split-finger pitch.

The move will be announced before tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Ascanio will be optioned back to Iowa.
