CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs positioned right-handed starter Keegan Thompson on the 15-day IL Saturday with low again tightness and recalled righty Anderson Espinoza from Triple-A Iowa.
The 27-year-old Thompson leads the Cubs in wins with a 9-5 file and three.97 ERA in 25 video games. He has made 17 begins since becoming a member of Chicago’s rotation on Could 11.
Supervisor David Ross doesn’t consider Thompson’s damage is severe, however mentioned it affected the righty on Friday towards Milwaukee when he allowed 5 runs — all from residence runs — in 3 2/3 innings in a second straight shaky begin.
“Is it one thing we’re tremendous long-term involved about? No,” Ross mentioned earlier than Saturday’s rain-delayed sport towards the Brewers. “It makes lots of sense to verify we care for this, this doesn’t pop as much as be one thing main.”
Thompson has pitched 104 1/3 innings this season, essentially the most for him since 2018 within the minors. He’s in his second 12 months within the majors.
Espinoza was recalled from the minors for the sixth time this season. He’s 0-2 with a 4.11 ERA in six video games with the Cubs in 2022.
