    • Cubs' Gerardo Concepcion: Strikes out two in debut
      By RotoWire Staff

      Concepcion retired all four batters he faced - including two by strikeout - in his major league debut Tuesday. Concepcion was terrible last year in the minors, but he was dominant for Double-A Tennessee this year before he was promoted to Triple-A Iowa for a decent 12-game stint.

    • Concepcion was had his contract selected by the Cubs on Tuesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Concepcion, a 24-year-old lefty, will be making his major league debut with the Cubs after some frustrating years in the minor leagues. He notched a 8.24 ERA at Double-A Tennessee in 2015, but Concepcion has turned a corner in a big way this season. In 12 appearances at Triple-A Iowa this season, Concepcion has worked a 2.60 ERA with a 1.46 WHIP and 17 strikeouts across 17.1 innings. He adds a much-needed left-handed option out of the bullpen for the Cubs.
