Cubs option RP Zac Rosscup, designate RP Brian Schlitter
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cubs have optioned Zac Rosscup three days after promoting him and designated for assignment fellow reliever Brian Schlitter.

Rosscup did not receive an opportunity to pitch in his latest stint with the team. Schlitter did - and that was a problem. He compiled a 7.36 ERA before his demotion in mid-June.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Mariners have dispatched veteran reliever and former closer Fernando Rodney to the Cubs for a player to be named, per the Chicago Sun-Times. He had been designated for assignment Saturday.

The 38-year-old Rodney has seemingly run out of gas this season. He owns a 5.68 ERA in 50 2/3 innings. He has tossed just one clean inning since Aug. 4.

Cubs SP Dan Haren doomed by one bad inning in loss to Giants
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Dan Haren's struggles with the Cubs continued on Thursday. The right-hander did not fare well in his start against the Giants, allowing five runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out four in the 9-1 Cubs' loss.

Haren (8-9, 3.90 ERA) was given an early 1-0 lead in the second inning, but he allowed the Giants to tie the game in the bottom half. The big inning came in the third, when the Giants tacked on four more, including a three-run home run by Marlon Byrd.

The 6 1/3 innings represents Haren's longest outing since joining the Cubs at the July 31 trade deadline. In five starts with the Cubs, Haren is 1-2 with a 6.33 ERA.

Ailments could keep Cubs OF Dexter Fowler out through Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A series of foul tips off various parts of his body has Cubs outfielder Dexter Fowler sidelined Thursday against San Francisco and possibly beyond. He has been hit on the right hand, left elbow and right shin, per mlb.com.

Fowler might remain out Friday against the Dodgers.

"I'm not 100 percent sure yet [if he'll play Friday]," Joe Maddon said. "He's still pretty sore. There's a shot at it, yes."

Fowler was on an 0-for-9 slide before going down.
