    • Leathersich was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday. Before being acquired by the Pirates on Sept. 4, Leathersich had been a member of the Cubs organization. He spent most of the season at Triple-A Iowa, where he threw 44.1 innings over 41 games. In that time, he posted a 2.84 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. Leathersich could be a decent source of strikeouts if he gets enough use in the majors, as he fanned 72 batters with Iowa this season.

    • Leathersich was claimed off waivers by the Pirates from the Cubs on Monday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Leathersich will report to Triple-A Indianapolis, where he'll serve as organizational pitching depth down the stretch. The 27-year-old has compiled an impressive 2.84 ERA and 72:28 K:BB in 44.1 innings with Triple-A Iowa this season, so he could see a cup of coffee with the Pirates in September.

    • Leathersich was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Saturday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Leathersich was sent off the 40-man roster in order to make room for the recently acquired Leonys Martin, who will join the major-league club Saturday. The left-hander has only appeared in one game for the Cubs this season, and has spent the majority of the year with Triple-A Iowa, posting a 2.84 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over 44.1 innings of relief.

    • Cubs' Jack Leathersich: Returned to Iowa
      By RotoWire Staff

      Leathersich was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. The left-hander appeared just once for the Cubs, giving up two runs in two-thirds of an inning. Leathersich has just 12.1 major-league innings to his name but carries a decent 3.65 ERA. Whenever he returns to the bigs, however, he'll occupy a low-leverage role.

    • Cubs' Jack Leathersich: Called up by Cubs
      By RotoWire Staff

      Leathersich was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday. Leathersich was added to the Chicago 40-man roster back in November, but it took the Cubs until July to award him his first potential major-league opportunity. He'll give manager Joe Maddon another left-handed option in the bullpen, but isn't bad against righties either, limiting them to a .172 batting average at the Triple-A level this season.
