The Cubs announced they have placed Carlos Gonzales on waivers. This will give all of the MLB teams a chance to pick him put at his current salary (league minimum since he was released by the Indians). If no team picks him up he will be given an option to be released or go to triple A Iowa to find his swing.
The Cubs have brought up from Iowa Dillion Maples and Rowan Wick. Both of which have been with the Cubs earlier this year. Wick had 3 appearances earlier in May and June posting a 2.45 ERA. Dillion Maples has appeared in 7 games and has a 0.00 ERA.
The Cubs have officially placed Cole Hamels on the 10 day IL. He will go through additional testing today.
