Getting back the Phils
Slightly different lineup today. There was no full-field BP this morning because of the night-day follow-up, but several guys took some time in the batting cage, under the rightfield bleachers.
Left-hander Cliff Lee (2-0, 1.13 ERA in the NL) pitches for the Phillies.
Right-hander Justin Berg was recalled today, and last night’s starter, Jeff Samardzija, was optioned to Triple-A Iowa. With the injuries and extra-inning games lately, the Cubs can use as many fresh arms in the bullpen as possible.
