Looks Like We're Temporarily Losing our .500 Hitter
Per Paul Sullivan and Enrique Rojas of ESPN Desportes, who tipped it late last night on Twitter, the Cubs are expected to disable Steve Clevenger--yes, 11-for-22 and 1249 OPS-hitting Steve Clevenger--because of "tightness in his side." Sullivan says Clevenger felt the discomfort during batting practice before Friday night's unmerciful thrashing of Roy Halladay.
Welington Castillo, hitting .320 with 2 HR and 8 RBI at Iowa, will get the call-up.
As our resident medical man, Cubster, said in the comments to the previous post, "Not officially an oblique strain but as close as it gets."
Can't have everything, I guess.
Blaspheme maybe, but I think Scherzer is the best pitcher in the NL right now.
