    Cubs' Berg Up, Stevens Down

    The Cubs have added another arm to their tired bullpen, recalling right-hander Justin Berg from Triple-A Iowa.
    The Cubs split a doubleheader against the San Diego Padres on Wednesday and used three relievers in Friday’s 12-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
    Berg went 0-1 with a 5.18 ERA in 41 games with the Cubs last season. He will be available for Saturday’s game against the Dodgers.
    Right-hander Jeff Stevens was sent down to Iowa to make room for Berg. Stevens pitched 3 1-3 innings in Friday’s loss, drawing praise from Cubs manager Mike Quade for helping save the bullpen for the rest of the series.

    They needed to bring someone up. Stevens threw 89 pitches yesterday and wouldn't be available for a few days. They may call him back up once the mandatory 10 days have passed.
