Rowan, we hardly knew ye.

Rowan Wick threw one inning for the Cubs in Thursday's loss, allowing one run.

He'll likely be back, but for now the Cubs have a bullpen reinforcement:

James Norwood made his MLB debut with the Cubs in 2018, and posted a 4.09 ERA in 11 relief appearances. So far this year at Triple-A Iowa he has a 4.95 ERA in 15 appearances.

Norwood can hit 97-98 miles per hour on his fastball and might stick around a while if he can command that fastball better. Otherwise I think he stays on the Iowa shuttle.
