Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Shifts to bullpen

Newcomb struck out two and worked around a hit and a walk to deliver a scoreless inning in relief in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Marlins. Newcomb's previous appearance with the Cubs had come as a starter in the second game of the team's doubleheader with the Cardinals on Thursday, when the southpaw took a no-decision after giving up two earned runs across three innings. Since the Cubs transitioned back into a five-man rotation following the doubleheader, Newcomb looks set to operate as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen for the duration of his stay on the active roster.

Cubs Option David Bote to Make Room for Sean Newcomb

The Cubs have selected the contract of left-handed pitcher Sean Newcomb from Triple-A Iowa and optioned David Bote to Des Moines. Newcomb, 29, has made four outings out of the bullpen for the Cubs this season, allowing eight runs in 4.1 IP with two walks and four strikeouts. The left-hander spent time on the 15-day injured list from May 11-June 12 with a left ankle sprain before being designated for assignment on June 13 and outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on June 20.

Cubs select contracts of lefties Sean Newcomb, Matt Dermody

Prior to Thursday’s doubleheader against the Cardinals, the Cubs announced some roster shuffling to reporters, including Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago. Left-hander Matt Dermody has had his contract selected and will serve as the club’s “27th man” during the twin bill. Fellow lefty Sean Newcomb will also have his contract selected to start the second game. Neither player was on the 40-man roster coming into Thursday, though the trade deadline moves left the Cubs at 37, meaning no corresponding moves will be required. However, a spot on the active roster will need to be created for Newcomb between games.

Newcomb had his contract selected by the Cubs and will start Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Goes three innings in spot-start

Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Getting start in doubleheader

The Cubs will call up Newcomb from Triple-A Iowa to start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Cardinals, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Chicago added lefty Matt Dermody from Iowa ahead of the twin bill to serve as their 27th man, but the team will wait until after Game 1 to officially select Newcomb's contract from the minors. The southpaw has made all 39 of his appearances at the big-league level over the past two seasons out of the bullpen, but he'll be joining the Cubs as a starter after having recently moved into the rotation at Iowa. He built up to four innings and 71 pitches in his last minor-league outing, so Newcomb could struggle to work deep enough in Game 2 to factor into any decision.

Braves come away with something out of nothing in the Sean Newcomb trade

When the Braves decided to designate Sean Newcomb for assignment, it was likely they were going to lose the former first-round pick for nothing. Instead, they were able to work out a deal with the Cubs, bringing Jesse Chavez back to Atlanta. Chavez wasn’t great in his three appearances for Chicago prior to the trade, but since returning to the Braves, he’s been a critical piece to the bullpen. Over 16 appearances (19.1 innings), the 38-year-old righty has posted a more than respectable 2.79 ERA, and his 1.90 FIP suggests he’s even been the subject of some porous luck.
