Dallas Beeler opened the season on the 15-day DL after experiencing shoulder inflammation during spring training, and his only appearances in 2016 came as a reliever at Triple-A Iowa, where an elbow injury eventually paved the way to a place on the 60-day DL, and subsequently ended his campaign. The Cubs outrighted Beeler off their 40-man roster in November, and it's expected that he'll remain in the organization to compete for a roster spot during spring training. Most likely, he'll be limited to long-relief or spot-start duty if the Cubs retain his services and elect to call upon him at any point in 2017.
Beeler (elbow) logged 2.2 innings so far this spring, allowing one unearned run on one hit, one walk and two hit batsmen. It's good to see Beeler healthy again, although his lack of control is a bit concerning. Given that he doesn't strike out very many batters, he relies on commanding his offerings heavily, although plunking two hitters and walking another hardly portrays command. He'll need to shore up his performance if he wants to be anything more than organizational depth this season.
Beeler (elbow) was activated off the 60-day disabled list and subsequently sent outright to Triple-A Iowa, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Beeler only managed to appear in eight games with Triple-A Iowa this past season, so the Cubs felt that they had other pieces more worthy of a 40-man roster spot. The right-hander is only 27 years old, so if he maintains his health, he still could latch onto the big league roster at some point if they are in need of bullpen depth or a spot starter.
Beeler (elbow) was placed on the 60-day DL on Friday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. From June 3 to June 27, Beeler threw in eight separate games while rehabbing his elbow. Over that time, he built a 4.16 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. The Cubs have yet to indicate how much longer Beeler will be away from action or how they'll proceed with getting the 27-year-old righty healthy.
Beeler (elbow) has made four rehab appearances for Triple-A Iowa this month, giving up three hits and three runs in five innings. He has walked one and has not struck out a batter. The Cubs do not appear to be in any hurry to move Beeler up to the majors, so he'll probably continue to pitch for Iowa for the time being.
Beeler (elbow) made his first appearance of the season Friday, throwing two innings for Triple-A Iowa. Beeler has been on the DL all season with an elbow strain in his pitching arm, but he's currently rehabbing with Iowa. There's no guarantee he'll be brought up to Chicago when he's ready, which could be a couple of weeks from now.
