Ryan cleared waivers Tuesday and will join Triple-A Iowa, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. The lefty appeared in just three games for the Cubs, allowing one earned run in 2.2 innings pitched. Ryan was a very effective reliever in 2019 and may return to the big-league roster at some point if a spot opens up.
Ryan was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Friday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The 29-year-old was promoted Tuesday after a brief stint in the minors, and he lost his spot on the 40-man roster after giving up one run on two hits and a walk while not recording an out Wednesday. Ryan could remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
The Cubs recalled Ryan from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Ryan was optioned to the minors just three days ago, but the Cubs were able to add him back to the big-league roster sooner than usual since Dan Winkler (triceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 29-year-old Ryan will provide the Cubs with another lefty option out of the bullpen.
Ryan was optioned off the Cubs' active roster Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Ryan spent two separate stints with the big-league squad during April, but neither lasted more than a day. He's thrown 2.2 scoreless innings so far this year. Keegan Thompson was called up in a corresponding move.
Ryan was recalled from the Cubs' alternate site, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Ryan will fill the roster spot of Trevor Megill (forearm), who goes to the 10-day injured list. The lefty has made one relief appearance this season, a scoreless, two-inning effort with one strikeout.
