Wada (shoulder) will make the start Saturday for Triple-A Iowa, Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reports.

Wada has progressed to the Triple-A level on his rehab assignment. With the major league All-Star break looming, this will give Wada a chance to get some extra work in before rejoining the Cubs.

Wada (shoulder) gave up four runs in four innings in a rehab start for Double-A Tennessee on Monday.

Wada struck out five but gave up eight hits, including two home runs. He'll probably get another start or two in the minors, but should be ready not long after the break.

Wada (shoulder) will make a rehab start Monday for Double-A Tennessee, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

If all goes well in this outing, Wada's next start could be with the Cubs in the big leagues. This could very well come next weekend during a three-game series with the White Sox.

Wada (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL Sunday with inflamation in his left deltoid, the Cubs' official site reports.

Wada injured his shoulder in Monday's start against the Dodgers and was forced to leave the game. He tried to rehab the injury, but after missing Saturday's start, the Cubs opted to rest Wada in attempt to get him back sooner than later. Neil Ramirez was activated from the DL in a corresponding move. Ramirez should return to his role in the bullpen.

Wada will not make his scheduled start Saturday, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

Donn Roach, a command and control righty from Triple-A, will take Wada's turn in the rotation. The Cubs hope that after a long-toss session and some time off Wada will be able to rejoin the rotation next week, but he should be considered questionable for that contest.

Wada's status for Saturday's scheduled start is still up in the air, manager Joe Maddon told MLB.com's Carrie Muskat. "There's still some soreness...we're not prepared to say yes or no on the next start. We're going to wait a little while longer to evaluate all that," said Maddon.

Wada was able to play catch Wednesday but it's still remains to be seen if he'll be able to give it a go on Saturday. More information concerning Wada's status should be made available once the Cubs finish evaluating his shoulder in the coming days.

Wada (shoulder) is still experiencing some soreness, Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports.

The Cubs were said to be cautiously optimistic about Wada's chances to start Saturday after he left Monday's start with cramping in his left deltoid, but his status is cloudy with the soreness continuing into Wednesday. Travis Wood replaced Wada in Monday's game but manager Joe Maddon suggested he wouldn't be an option to start in place of Wada, saying he likes Wood in his current long-relief role.
