We've all been wondering who would start Tuesday's game against the Padres in San Diego once the announcement was made that Matt Garza was headed to the DL:

The Chicago Cubs sent Matt Garza back to Chicago to see a doctor, and the pitcher is bound for the disabled list, according to manager Dale Sveum.

Garza has not pitched since July 21 at St. Louis, when he suffered a cramp in his right triceps. An MRI revealed no major damage, although there was slight fluid buildup around the muscle.

A series of tweets from people connected to Iowa Cubs lefty Brooks Raley indicated that Raley was on his way to San Diego, offered him congratulations, and then there was this:

Raley has made 14 starts for Triple-A Iowa this year, posted a 3.62 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, and given up just seven home runs in 82 innings. He'll be the 14th rookie to play for the Cubs this year, and the 46th player overall. Have at it.
