Tsuyoshi Wada RP CHC 3 Days

Tsuyoshi Wada took a loss Wednesday after giving up five runs in four innings versus the Padres.

The Padres had scored six runs in six games coming into this one, making Wada's performance even more discouraging. He's certainly not going to miss enough bats to afford the four walks he issued tonight. If he's not better next time out against the Rockies, he could be looking at a quick hook from the Cubs rotation.

Tsuyoshi Wada, making his major league debut, allowed only an unearned run over five innings but took a no-decision against the Reds in Tuesday's nightcap.

The 33-year-old gave up five hits and a walk in his debut, with the only run coming on a Junior Lake fielding error. He's been very good at Triple-A this year and with the Cubs recently dealing 40 percent of their starting rotation, it wouldn't be surprising to see Wada stick around to start the second half. The left-hander may be worth a look in NL-only leagues, but that's as far as his value extends currently.

The veteran southpaw has pitched well at Triple-A Iowa, posting a 2.66 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 105/26 K/BB ratio over his 101 2/3 innings. If he pitches well, he could hang onto the rotation spot for the remainder of the season and is worthy of a look in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Cubs purchased the contract of LHP Tsuyoshi Wada from Triple-A Iowa; optioned him to Triple-A Iowa.

The Cubs needed to add Wada to the 40-man roster in order to prevent him from exercising an opt-out clause in his contract. The left-hander boasts a 2.81 ERA with 83 strikeouts over 86 1/3 innings at Iowa this season and seems likely to get a chance next month with the Cubs likely to trade Jeff Samardzija and/or Jason Hammel.

Cubs signed RHP Tsuyoshi Wada to a minor league contract.

Wada was given his release by the Cubs on Sunday after it was obvious he wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster, but it didn't take long for the two sides to work out a new deal.

Cubs released RHP Tsuyoshi Wada.

The 33-year-old hurler disappointed this spring, posting an 11.12 ERA, 2.65 WHIP and 7/5 K/BB ratio over 5 2/3 innings. He's still talented, but the inconsistent results and long history of injuries could dissuade other teams from giving him a shot.
