The Cubs recalled right-handed pitcher Dallas Beeler from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

Beeler, who will wear uniform number 32, will serve as the club’s 26th man today and will make the start in the second game of today’s doubleheader vs. the Cardinals at Wrigley Field.

The 26-year-old Beeler is 1-5 with a 6.33 ERA (41 ER/58.1 IP) in 13 starts with Iowa this season, though he has posted no record and a 1.78 ERA (5 ER/25.1 IP) in his last five starts. Beeler began the season on the major league 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation and was activated and optioned to Triple-A on May 18. He has pitched six innings or more in three of his last five outings while allowing two earned runs or less in all five, including zero or one earned run in three starts. He has struck out 26 batters and walked only two in his last 25.1 innings.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Beeler made his major league debut with the Cubs last year and went 0-2 in his two big league starts despite posting a 3.27 ERA (4 ER/11.0 IP). With Triple-A Iowa last year, Beeler went 9-6 with a 3.40 ERA (47 ER/124.1 IP). He struck out 83 batters and walked only 32 in 124.1 innings pitched during his first-career season in Triple-A.

Beeler is in his sixth professional campaign since being selected by the Cubs in the 41st round of the 2010 Draft out of Oral Roberts University. Beeler reached Double-A Tennessee in his first full pro campaign in 2011 and made a career-high 27 starts for Tennessee in 2012 before being slowed by a sprained finger on his right hand in 2013, limiting him to only nine starts. Beeler is a career 22-29 with a 3.90 ERA (211 ER/486.2 IP) in 99 minor league outings (91 starts).
