Ryan was called up from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday.

Mike Montgomery (lat) was placed on the 10-day injured list, so the Cubs are turning to Ryan as a left-handed replacement in the bullpen. The 27-year-old posted a 2.84 ERA over 12.2 innings this spring but did not make the Opening Day roster. Considering Montgomery's struggles thus far, Ryan may have a shot at retaining his role in the Cubs' bullpen if he performs well during this stint.
