Cubs switch starts of Tsuyoshi Wada, Jason Hammel
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cubs have flip-flopped starters Tsuyoshi Wada and Jason Hammel in their rotation this weekend against the Royals, per ESPN. The former is now set to start Saturday and the latter Sunday.

The team wants to give more time to Hammel, who is dealing with a fingernail issue. It has certainly not affected him too negatively on the mound - he has six straight quality starts.

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada strikes out six in no-decision
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada allowed one run on four hits in 5 1/3 innings of work in Chicago's 2-1 loss to the Nationals on Monday, but did not factor into a decision.

Wada made just one glaring mistake in his start, allowing a leadoff home run to Denard Span in the first inning. After that, Wada settled down and recorded six strikeouts with just two walks in his outing.

"I liked the way it set up for us a lot," manager Joe Maddon said per MLB.com. "I wanted him to pitch to the lefty one more time, which was Harper. I really liked how we had it stacked after that. One pitch, and that's how this game is played sometimes. Our bullpen was outstanding again, too."

Wada, who remains 0-0, moved his ERA to 2.70 in 10 innings of work. He will look to pick up his first win of the year on Sunday against the Royals.

Cubs' Tsuyoshi Wada strikes out nine in no-decision Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada set a career-high with nine strikeouts in his season debut Wednesday but didn't factor into the decision in his team's 3-2 win over the Padres.

Wada was brilliant at the outset of Wednesday's start, striking out the side in the first and third innings while facing the minimum. He surrenderd a two-run homer in the fourth and was pulled with two outs and two on the fifth having thrown 69 pitches.

"He'd done his job," manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "I'm more about the Cubs winning as opposed to any particular pitcher winning. You can let him go for one more third of an inning, maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. I thought it was a great game for him to build off of."

Wada finished the day with two earned runs scored on four hits and one walk in 4 2/3 innings. He's lined up to face the Nationals on Monday.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Cubs have activated left-handed pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada from the 15-day disabled list, according to MLB.com. Wada had been on the DL all season with a groin injury. 

Wada will replace Travis Wood in the rotation, who is being moved to the bullpen. Wada is expected to make season-debut and start on Wednesday against the Padres.

He was 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 69 1/3 innings as a rookie in 2014.

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada to start Wednesday for Travis Wood
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada will replace Travis Wood in the starting rotation on Wednesday against the Padres, manager Joe Maddon said per the Chicago Tribune.

Wood was moved to the bullpen on Saturday, earning his first career save in the game. Wada will join Chicago after his rehab stint this week.

"I have a lot of faith in this guy coming out of the pen," Maddon said of Wood. "He has had some really good games this year and really good moments in other ones. Just go out there and be aggressive, assertive and let it go for an inning or two. I think when he does that, he can be really good.

"We also talked to him about the potential of becoming a starter again at some point. But right now we are looking at it this way."

Wada posted a 4-4 record with a 3.25 ERA in 69 1/3 innings of work in 2014.
