    Cubs call up Samardzija

    Wood's blister slow to heal, so he's headed to DL -- ChicagoSports.com


    I'm guessing it will be a short lived promotion since Wood is slated to come back sometime next week but Jeff has the opportunity to show what he has in the short time he's up. If the Cubs need another arm for the rotation for instance if Marquis begins to suck again or even in long relief down the stretch I'm guessing if he keeps throwing like he is in Iowa he'll get the chance to be that guy.


    Go Cubs Go!

    This may be a nice chance for Wood to get some midseason rest.

    Wow, that didn't take long. I guess when your paying him MLB money, need to get him up quickly. I still don't think he's ready!

    I was referring to fans, not the team as much. Although it does kinda suck starting up his FA clock...

    This is no big deal. The cubs needed another power arm in the bullpen while Wood is out. Makes sense to me, the kid has earned it.

    I believe since he is on a major league contract, his FA clock has already started anyways...

    Thanks for bringing this up...I'm sure you can answer this question... Once a guy is called up for the first time isn't there a limited number of times he can be optioned back to the minor league team?

    And after that doesn't he go on waivers or become a free agent?

    Re: Cubs call up Samardzija

    Just because he is on a 'major league contract it doesn't mean his free agency clock has started. This will be his first 'option year' meaning he has to be on the 40 man roster from now on out. By all accounts he isn't ready to stay up there for good. If other prospects pass him up and need to be protected it could cause a problem. If they sign more stars and he is in the minors all year last year, you waste an option year. After three option years you have to clear waivers to be sent down.

    Re: Cubs call up Samardzija

    I am more concerned about how it could take 3 weeks to heal a blister for wood. Hopefully they are just giving him some rest and they aren't hiding something.

    Re: Cubs call up Samardzija

    Isn't he already on the 40 man roster? I thought the cubs put him on it this year?

    When you throw a power breaking ball like Wood it has to be totally healed before you can do anything. Every time he picks up a ball it probably reagrivatres it. Blisters suck for pitchers!

    Wonder if he's tried the Moises Alou treatment?

    If I'm a fan of anyone it's the Cubs. I just have a personal interest in the Nats.
