Tsuyoshi Wada P CHC 11 Days

Wada turned in another nice effort, surrendering two earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out six across a half-dozen frames versus the Rays on Friday afternoon.

Now five starts into his MLB career, Wada has put up mostly solid results since being called up from Triple-A Iowa back on July 8. Across 27.2 innings for the Cubs, the 33-year-old southpaw from Japan has posted a 3.25 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 8.1 K/9. Wada is slated to be back on the mound Wednesday against the Brewers.

Tsuyoshi Wada allowed just one run over seven innings to beat the Rockies on Monday.

Well, technically it was the Rockies, though it's little more than a skeleton crew at the moment. Wada allowed five hits, walked one and struck out six in a much better outing than the one he had last week against the Padres. He's still a weak play in NL-only leagues right now.

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.

Cubs optioned LHP Tsuyoshi Wada to Triple-A Iowa.

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.

Cubs recalled LHP Tsuyoshi Wada from Triple-A Iowa.

Wada will come up to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Reds, which will be his major league debut. The 33-year-old southpaw has posted a 2.66 ERA and 105/26 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A. There's opportunity in the Cubs' rotation right now, so a strong performance could keep him around or at least put him in the mix during the second half.

Tsuyoshi Wada will join the Cubs starting rotation on Tuesday to take on the Reds in Cincinnati.

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.
