Cubs Roster News: Duensing to Bereavement List, Zastryzny Called Up
The Cubs announced today that they have placed reliever Brian Duensing on the bereavement list and have called up Rob Zastryzny to take his place. Per MLB rules, Duensing must miss a minimum of three games and a maximum of seven. The Cubs did not disclose the specific nature of the situation with Duensing, but our thoughts are with him and his family.
Zastryzny rejoins the Cubs for the second time this season. He has appeared in just one game, tossing two scoreless innings of relief back on May 8 against the Marlins. At Triple-A Iowa, Rob Z has posted a 3.97 ERA with 29 strikeouts and 18 walks in 34 innings of relief .
