It appears Lou Piniella has finally had enough of Neal Cotts not being able to get anyone out. After sucking the entire season and allowing a 1.200+ OPS to left-handed hitters, Neal Cotts was finally sent to AAA Iowa this morning. To take his place the Cubs purchased the contract of LHP Jason Wadell and added him to the 25-man roster.
It appears Jake Fox is also finally going to get an opportunity with the big club. As many had suspected, with 6 interleague road games coming up, Fox was recalled from Iowa and will likely get some starts at DH over the next month. He will also be a nice bat off the bench. The Cubs also added Andres Blanco from Iowa to backup Ryan Theriot at SS. They take the places of Bobby Scales, who has been sidelined with the flu and Aaron Miles, who was placed on the disabled list with a bad shoulder.
