Brian Matusz: Opts for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matusz elected free agency Thursday after being outrighted from the Cubs' 40-man roster, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

The veteran lefty will look to latch on with another club, likely in a bullpen role after spending time in the Orioles and Cubs organizations in 2016. Thus far, he's failed to match last season's success, which included a 56:20 K:BB over 49 innings along with a 2.94 ERA and 1.18 WHIP for Baltimore.

Cubs' Brian Matusz: Designated for assignment Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

After getting roughed up by the Mariners in his first start Sunday, Matusz was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Monday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Matusz will now go through the waiver process. If he goes unclaimed, the Cubs will outright him to Triple-A Iowa. In the minors in 2016, Matusz owns a 3.58 ERA with 39 strikeouts over 27.2 innings split between the Orioles and Cubs organizations.

Cubs' Brian Matusz: Done in by long ball in first Cubs start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Matusz didn't factor into the decision Sunday versus the Mariners, giving up six earned runs on six hits and two walks over three innings. He struck out two.

All six of the runs given up by Matusz came on a trio of two-run homers over each of the first three innings. Nelson Cruz, Robinson Cano and Dae-Ho Lee all did the honors, chasing the 29-year-old after just 57 pitches. The southpaw had turned in two strong efforts for Triple-A Iowa, but his performance Sunday bore no resemblance to those outings.

Cubs' Brian Matusz: Officially added to 25-man roster, starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matusz's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa and he will start the evening's game against the Mariners.

The left-handed Matusz last pitched in the majors earlier this season as a reliever for the Orioles. After a brief stay in Atlanta via trade, he was designated for assignment and eventually signed a minor league contract with the Cubs. Following two strong starts for Triple-A Iowa, he will now make his first major league start since 2012. The Cubs optioned Justin Grimm to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Brian Matusz: Likely Cubs' starter Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Matusz is the likely starter for the Cubs' matchup against Seattle on Sunday, Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM reports.

Matusz was scratched from his Triple-A Iowa start on Friday, signaling a possible call up. The 29-year-old hurler recently made two starts for the Triple-A affiliate, giving up two earned runs over a combined 9.1 innings. He'd match up with Seattle's Felix Hernandez if he indeed does get the promotion before Sunday's game.
