News
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.

Cubs third baseman Luis Valbuena 3 for 4 with a triple and a solo home run in his team's 8-3 loss to the Giants Wednesday.

Valbuena led off the second inning with a triple in his first at-bat, but the Cubs recorded back-to-back outs without pushing him across the plate before a two-run home run put the team on the board. Valbuena then delivered a home run of his own in the eighth inning. The third baseman owns a .242/.324/.423 line with 11 home runs and 41 RBI in 359 at-bats.

News
Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks held the Mets to one run in seven innings during a 4-1 win Monday. He allowed three hits and two walks, while striking out three on his way to a fourth straight victory.

Hendricks (5-1) allowed a pair of singles in the first three innings before Lucas Duda launched a solo home run with one out in the fourth inning. It was just the third home run in seven starts the rookie has allowed.

Despite falling behind, Hendricks bounced back and was still in line for the decision when Anthony Rizzo gave Chicago a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning. He's won five of seven starts since his promotion from the minors. Hendricks is also the first Cubs' rookie with six consecutive quality starts since Kerry Wood, who had two streaks of seven quality starts in 1998, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Hendricks is expected to make his next start Saturday against the Orioles. He is 2-1 with a 0.44 ERA in his first three starts at Wrigley Field.

Over his last two starts covering 11 1/3 innings, Wood has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 4.91 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP over 26 starts (150 1/3 innings). He will look to bounce back Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Lat - 15-day DL. Out until at least early September (Updated - 8/21/14)
News
Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, due to a strained right lat.

Jackson was chased in the third inning of his start Wednesday after allowing eight hits and seven runs, and it appears the injury is at least part of the reason. The team had discussed moving him to a bullpen role after Wednesday's outing, but that decision will have to wait until after this injury heals. At this point, there is no timetable for his return.

Jackson has struggled mightily this season even before the injury, with his ERA ballooning to 6.09 in 26 starts.

It was the first home run of the season for Valaika, who was shifted into the lineup once Starlin Castro was scratched to attend to a family emergency. Valaika owns a .182/.222/.273 line in 33 at-bats.
