Chicago Cubs relief pitcher, Eddie Butler, has joined the Iowa Cubs after a long DL stint.
Butler is expected to start in Iowa tonight per Tommy Birch. Eddie hit the DL on April 20th due to a groin injury. In 14.2 innings pitched with the Cubs this year he posted a 4.30 ERA. Butler could start for the Cubs if needed, but we will probably see him remain in the long relief role when he gets back.
