Cubs roster move: Trevor Megill recalled, Kohl Stewart optioned

Kohl Stewart's start Friday wasn't successful, and so the Cubs have sent him back to Triple-A Iowa and recalled reliever Trevor Megill. Megill has appeared in two games for the Cubs this season after being selected from the alternate site on April 26. He did not allow a run in two innings, along with two hits, a walk, and two strikeouts. He was placed on the 10-day injured list on April 30 with a right forearm strain. Megill has a 9.00 ERA along with five hits, six walks, and six strikeouts in five relief appearances with Triple-A Iowa this season.

In 8 2/3 innings, he has a 1-1 record with a 3.12 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. Stewart last pitched on Saturday in a 4-3 loss against the Giants.

Cubs' Kohl Stewart: Sent to Triple-A

Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday. His ERA shot to 5.68 after giving up five earned runs in four innings Friday against the Cardinals. Stewart could return to the big-league rotation later this summer if he can show some improvement at Triple-A. Cory Abbott could be an option to take his rotation spot, and Adbert Alzolay (finger) will eventually rejoin the rotation.

Cubs' Kohl Stewart: ERA shoots above 5.00

Stewart gave up five earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three in four innings Friday against the Cardinals. He did not factor in the decision. His ERA ballooned from 3.12 to 5.68 with this poor outing. After logging five scoreless innings May 31 against the Padres, Stewart has now failed to record more than 12 outs in either of his last two outings. If Stewart remains in the rotation, his next outing would be on the road early next week against the Mets.

Cubs' Kohl Stewart: Sent to Triple-A

Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. The 26-year-old struggled in his second start of the season Saturday versus the Giants with three runs allowed on seven hits over 3.2 innings, and he'll return to the minors with Trevor Williams potentially nearing his return from an appendectomy. Stewart covered five scoreless frames during his first start of the season and could receive another look in Chicago's rotation later in the year.

Cubs' Kohl Stewart: Suffers first loss

Stewart (1-1) took the loss Saturday against the Giants, completing 3.2 innings and allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five. The right-hander impressed in his season debut Monday, holding San Diego to an unearned run over five innings. He was much less effective Saturday, as San Francisco racked up seven hits -- including a home run off the bat off Alex Dickerson -- against him in less than four innings. Stewart induced only four swinging strikes in the contest and missed the zone on 33 of his 79 pitches. Trevor Williams (appendicitis) could return by the end of the coming week, which would likely result in Stewart's removal from the rotation.

Cubs' Kohl Stewart: Picking up another start

Stewart is slated to start Saturday's game in San Francisco, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Unsurprisingly, Stewart will pick up a second straight turn through the Chicago rotation while Trevor Williams remains on the 10-day injured list following an appendectomy. While filling in for Williams on Monday in his team debut, Stewart limited the Padres to an unearned run on three hits and one walk while striking out two en route to picking up his first big-league win since July 21, 2019.

Cubs' Kohl Stewart: Cruises through five innings

Stewart (1-0) allowed one unearned run on a walk and three hits over five innings Monday, striking out two and earning a win over the Padres. The only run to score against Stewart came in the second inning after Fernando Tatis reached base on an error. It was the 26-year-old's first MLB appearance since the 2019 season when he recorded a 6.39 ERA in nine games. Stewart will likely get another turn in the rotation this weekend in San Francisco while Trevor Williams (appendicitis) is on the injured list.

Cubs' Kohl Stewart: Picking up start Monday

Stewart has been announced as the Cubs' starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Padres. Stewart had not even been recalled to the major-league roster as of Monday morning, but he will now take the spot of Trevor Williams (appendicitis), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding roster move. Stewart has started in all four of his appearances with Triple-A Iowa, tallying 22 innings, so he should be reasonably stretched out headed into his start.
