Cubs roster move: Adbert Alzolay recalled

Another reinforcement for the pitching staff.

Adbert Alzolay made a splash in his major league debut in June, and now he's back:

Alzolay's first MLB appearance against the Mets, and then a start vs. the Braves, were very good, but then he got hit hard by the Pirates July 1 and was sent back to Triple-A Iowa.

In August at Iowa he posted a 3.32 ERA in six appearances with 31 strikeouts in 21⅔ innings. He's another righthander, along with Alec Mills, who can be used in long relief.
