The Chicago Cubs today recalled right-handed pitcher Hayden Wesneski from Triple-A Iowa and optioned right-handed pitcher Michael Rucker to Iowa.
Wesneski is 2-2 with a 5.03 ERA and 1.322 WHIP in eight starts with the Cubs this season.
Rucker has made 20 relief appearances with the Cubs this season, posting a 5.48 ERA (14 earned runs in 23 innings).
I'm assuming this move is just in case Kyle Hendricks needs a piggyback guy tonight. Wesneski last pitched five days ago on May 25, so he could do that tonight.
As always, we await developments. Today's game preview will post at 5 p.m. CT.
