Justin Grimm P CHC 5 Months
Justin Grimm will compete for a bullpen job.
Grimm has served as a starter in the past, but the Cubs have enough rotation candidates and will ask the right-hander to fight for a middle relief spot. The 25-year-old right-hander was acquired from the Rangers last July as part of the Matt Garza trade.

Cubs acquired RHP Justin Grimm from the Rangers in the Matt Garza deal.
Grimm has posted a 6.37 ERA in 17 starts with the Rangers this season, but he's only 24 and could eventually develop into a solid back-end of the rotation starter. He'll report to Triple-A Iowa for now but will be an option for the Cubs' rotation later this season.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Cubs will also receive right-hander Justin Grimm in the Matt Garza deal.
Grimm has a 6.37 ERA in 17 starts with the Rangers this season, but he's only 24 years old and was ranked as the Rangers' No. 5 prospect by Baseball America over the winter. Passan hears that the Cubs will also receive Mike Olt, C.J. Edwards, and a player to be named later. It's a pretty nice haul for a player who will be a free agent following the season.

Justin Grimm will be moved to the Rangers' bullpen at the start of the second half.
The demotion comes as no surprise, as Grimm didn't last more than four innings in his last three starts and sports a 6.37 ERA and 1.65 WHIP for the season. Ross Wolf is taking his spot in the rotation for the time being.

Justin Grimm struggled mightily in Friday's loss to the Tigers, and eventually departed in the fourth inning due to to right forearm soreness.
The injury isn't believed to be serious, and he was removed for precautionary reasons. During his time in the ballgame, Grimm surrendered seven runs on 10 hits in just 3 1/3 innings of work. He walked two and struck out three in the rough outing. The first six Tigers reached base to start the game, with five of them coming around to score before the frame was over. He now owns a 6.37 ERA and 1.65 WHIP on the season, and may not get another start for the Rangers.

Justin Grimm was rocked for six runs -- five earned -- on seven hits and two walks over just four innings in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.
Grimm struck out just one and allowed three homers on the night, including back-to-back shots by Raul Ibanez and Kendrys Morales in the first. The right-hander has seen his ERA rise from 3.93 to 5.84 over his last six starts and surely would have been booted from the rotation by now had the Rangers not had so many injuries. He's currently in line to get the ball again this weekend at home against the Astros.

Justin Grimm allowed three runs in five innings to earn the win over the Yankees on Wednesday.
The win moved Grimm to 7-5 and he's now won his last two starts. He allowed six hits without walking a batter on Wednesday, striking out four. When the Rangers starters get healthy Grimm might be a candidate for a move to the bullpen, but for now he'll likely remain in the rotation. His next start will come Tuesday against the Mariners.

Justin Grimm allowed three runs over five innings to pick up the win against the A's on Wednesday.
Grimm followed up his longest outing of the year with one of the shorter ones, throwing just 75 pitches over the five innings before being pulled. It was still enough to get him his sixth win, as he held the A's to just three hits and three walks. His next start will come Tuesday against the Yankees in New York.
