Cubs Select Trevor Megill from Alternate Site, Place Rowan Wick on 60-Day IL

Monday morning brought news that Jason Adam had been optioned to the alternate site following a disastrous outing that wrecked what had otherwise been a decent showing so far. That meant calling someone up to take his place, but word on that didn’t come out for quite a while after Adam’s transaction. Rather than bringing Pedro Strop or Justin Steel back up, the Cubs actually opted for righty Trevor Megill.

Cubs' Rowan Wick: Lands on 10-day IL

Wick was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Although Wick won't be ready for Opening Day due to an injury that he dealt with throughout camp, he recently completed a 25-pitch bullpen session. It's not yet clear when he'll be cleared to face live hitters, but he appears to be nearing full health despite his placement on the injured list. Brandon Workman could step into a setup role for the Cubs while Wick is sidelined.

Cubs' Rowan Wick: Advances to mound work

Wick (ribs) advanced from long toss to mound work this week, throwing one 10-pitch bullpen session, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Wick arrived at camp with an intercostal injury, and while he's continued to make progress, he's probably out of time to avoid a trip to the injured list with Opening Day less than two weeks away. Assuming his effectiveness returns along with his health, he should be one of the top setup men in the Cubs' bullpen, as he owns a 2.66 ERA in 50.2 innings over the last two years. That's a role that could have some fantasy value this season, as Cubs closer Craig Kimbrel hasn't been anything close to reliable in recent seasons.

Cubs' Rowan Wick: Extends throwing distance

Cubs manager David Ross said Sunday that Wick (rib) has increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 105 feet, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. While Ross noted that Wick is making good progress over the past two weeks, the skipper was unwilling to speculate on when the right-hander might be ready to pitch in spring games, according to Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago. Given that Wick will still need to complete multiple bullpen sessions and live batting practice sessions before being cleared for his Cactus League debut, he looks unlikely to be ready to go for Opening Day.

Cubs' Rowan Wick: Playing catch

Manager David Ross said Thursday that Wick (ribs) played catch within the past few days and felt good afterward, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Wick has been dealing with an intercostal injury to begin spring training, and the Cubs have been bringing him along slowly as a result. Ross said that he got a lot of "positive feedback" from Wick after he played catch, but he still didn't have a timetable for his return. The right-hander is still a long shot to be ready for Opening Day, but he appears to be progressing well in his recovery. He's expected to serve as a top setup man for Chicago once he's healthy.

Cubs still trying to determine when Rowan Wick will return

Cubs reliever Rowan Wick still lacks a timetable for a return because of a lingering injury. Rowan Wick appeared to be a solid addition to the Chicago Cubs bullpen when he debuted with the team in 2019. He posted a 2.43 ERA in 31 games and carried over that success into 2020.

Cubs' Rowan Wick: Delayed by intercostal injury

Wick will be delayed to start camp due to an intercostal injury, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. The exact nature and severity of the issue are not yet clear, but it's certainly not a positive sign to see a pitcher enter the year already battling injury problems. It's perhaps doubly discouraging in Wick's case, as he also had his 2020 campaign end prematurely due to a mid-September oblique strain. If healthy, he could potentially pick up some saves this season after saving four games while recording a 3.12 ERA last year, but a trip to the injured list can't be ruled out.

Should the Cubs trade Rowan Wick? If so, what’s his trade value?

I've run into another Cubs trade proposal that seems worth discussing, not because I approve or disapprove of it (It's really close), but because of a few topics it brings up. The trade idea for Rowan Wick from the Mariners Fansided site brings up the importance of not only cost control for relievers, but the importance of arbitration years for relievers. As important as a deep bullpen is in MLB now, nobody made an offer for Ryne Stanek that was impressive enough for him to turn down a $1.1 million dollar offer from the Astros.
