Cubs option pitcher Donn Roach to Triple-A on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Cubs optioned right-hander Donn Roach to Triple-A Iowa on Friday. Roach made one appearance for the Cubs, a start on June 27. Roach struggled in that outing, allowing four runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Cardinals.

The move opens up a roster spot for Clayton Richard, who was acquired in a trade on Friday.

Cubs acquire pitcher Clayton Richard from Pirates
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Cubs have acquired left-hander Clayton Richard from the Pirates in exchange for cash. Richard hasn't appeared in the Major Leagues since 2013 with the Padres.

He was signed by the Pirates as a free agent during this past offseason, and split this season with Class A Bradenton and Triple-A Indianapolis. In all, Richard made 10 starts in the Pirates' system, going 4-3 with a 1.89 ERA. 

Richard is expected to start on Saturday for the Cubs against the Marlins, the Daily Herald reports.

Lack of run support dooms Cubs SP Jason Hammel to defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs starter Jason Hammel pitched well enough to win Friday against Miami. But counterpart Tom Koehler pitched just a little bit better.

Hammel allowed just two earned runs on five hits in seven innings with one walk and five strikeouts. But blasts by Christian Yelich in the first inning and Justin Bour in the sixth doomed him to his fourth loss in nine decisions.

Inconsistency has plagued Hammel recently. He has not managed successive quality starts since his first two outings in June. But his latest effort lowered his ERA on the season to a fine 2.89.

Cubs conduct prospect-swap with Angels
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cubs have traded for pitching prospect Manny Rondon and international slot number four from the Angels for catcher Rafael Lopez, who was designated for assignment Saturday.

Lopez was batting .276 for Triple-A Iowa after a short stint last season with the Cubs. Rondon was a Dominican Summer All-Star a year ago when he posted a 2.30 ERA in 14 starts. He has gone 3-7 with a 2.94 ERA as both a starter and reliever in the Angels organization.

Cubs SS Starlin Castro catching break Friday against Marlins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has had successive multi-hit games for the first time in two weeks, but a third one is quite unlikely. He is on the bench for the Friday afternoon game against visiting Miami.

Castro has started all but two games at shortstop this season, but he has been fairly unproductive after a bounce-back season in 2014. He owns a slash line of .263/.298/.341 with just 26 runs scored as midseason approaches.
