Report: Cubs, Giants set to continue Tuesday game Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Giants have prevailed in a protest of how Tuesday's called game was handled, and Tuesday's 2-0 Cubs win is set to be continued Thursday, picking up where things left off in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The game was delayed for more than four hours after the grounds crew was unable to get the tarp completely on the infield before it was drenched, with the umpires ultimately deciding to call the game and award Chicago with the win late into the night. Tsuyoshi Wada (win) and Ryan Vogelsong (loss) were the pitchers of record in the game, but if it's continued, those decisions are up in the air.

Tsuyoshi Wada wins, Ryan Vogelsong loses in rain-shortened affair
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Giants was called as final after five innings, with the Cubs coming out on top, 2-0.

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada got the win after throwing five shutout innings, scattering six pitches and striking out three batters. Ryan Vogelsong took the loss for the Giants, allowing two runs on three hits and a pair of walks over four innings, while striking out four before the rain came.

Tsuyoshi Wada goes five scoreless innings before delay Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitchr Tsuyoshi Wada gave up six hits in five scoreless innings while striking out three Tuesday before his team's game against the Giants went into a long delay in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The rain came down for about 15 minutes at Wrigley Field, but the grounds crew was unable to bring the tarp in before the field got soaked. That led to a massive delay that extended after the rain stopped as the grounds crew tried to get the field in a playable condition. If Wada's line stands, he'll own a 2.75 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Orioles.

Tsuyoshi Wada making himself an option for 2015
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada has been impressive in his first run with the team, and catcher John Baker said the receipe to his success has not been complicated.

"Executing," Baker told ESPN.com Friday. "Everything that he's throwing. He puts the ball where he wants to put the ball. And he's not shaking me off. Maybe twice (on Wednesday). So I can take the pressure and he can just pitch." 

Wade has a 3.15 ERA in six starts since joining the Cubs from Triple-A Iowa, and might be pitching himself into a rotation spot in 2015. The Cubs hold an option for Wada for next season.

Tsuyoshi Wada gaining momentum
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cubs rookie Tsuyoshi Wada (hey, it's technically true even though he's 33 and had a lengthy career in Japan) turned in another fine performance Wednesday against the Brewers, allowing two runs on five hits with one walk and five strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. He's now allowed two earned runs or fewer in five of his six starts with predictably good control and a much better strikeout rate than I anticipated given his below-average fastball.

Because he was older and less touted than fellow import Wei-Yin Chen when the Orioles brought both in prior to 2012, I'll admit I wrote him off in Fantasy, especially since he almost immediately needed Tommy John surgery. The guy was already a long shot at his age. Now, he'd never get his chance.

Except he has this year with the Cubs. And his performance so far reminds me of another strike-throwing but relatively soft-tossing import who has far exceeded the hype: Hisashi Iwakuma of the Mariners.

That's a dangerous comparison to make given how successful Iwakuma has been the last two years, but Wada had a 1.51 ERA in his final year in Japan back in 2011. Maybe we've underestimated him, too.

For now, I think Fantasy owners should value Wada about on the same level as a Jason Vargas, but he could surge past him in the weeks ahead.
