Strop (hamstring) fired a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Rockies.

Strop was activated from the injured list before the game, and any thought that the Cubs would ease him back into action with low-leverage work was tossed out the window when they trotted him out for the ninth inning. The 33-year-old righty recorded 13 saves and posted a 2.26 ERA for Chicago in 2018, and it looks like he'll be the team's top endgame option for now, with Brandon Morrow (elbow) potentially factoring into the mix at some point this season.
