The Cubs brought up right-handed pitcher Chang-Yong Lim from Triple-A Iowa Wednesday morning.

To make room on the 40-man roster, right-handed reliever Michael Bowden was designated for assignment.

The 37-year-old Lim signed a two-year deal this offseason while recovering from Tommy John surgery in 2012. At four levels this year, the righty had no record and posted a 1.61 ERA in 22.1 innings, including five starts. He fanned 24 batters and walked seven while limiting opponents to a .173 average.

The South Korea native pitched 17 seasons in Korea (1996-2007) and Japan (2008-12), and represented his country in the 2000 Summer Olympics and the 2009 World Baseball Classic.

Bowden was 1-3 with a 4.30 ERA in 34 appearances this year for the Cubs.
