      Cubs' Adbert Alzolay: Banished to minors

      Adbert Alzolay was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.Alzolay was lit up in Monday's series opener against the Pirates, allowing seven runs on 10 hits before getting yanked with two outs in the third inning, so this move wasn't unexpected, especially given the return of Kyle Hendricks (shoulder) from the injured list.

      Cubs' Adbert Alzolay: Gets hit hard in second start

      Adbert Alzolay (1-1) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and a walk across 2.2 innings to take the loss Monday against the Pirates. He struck out three.Alzolay may have nightmares of Josh Bell, as the Pittsburgh slugger tagged him for a three-run home run in the first inning, then launched a two-run bomb off of him in the second. The 24-year-old righty was off to a nice start with a 2.08 ERA through his first 8.2 innings of work, but that figure ballooned to 7.15 on Monday. With Cole Hamels (oblique) on the IL, Alzolay could stick around as the Chicago Cubs' No. 5 starter, but they could also turn to Tyler Chatwood on an interim basis, sending Alzolay to the bullpen or, more likely, Triple-A.

      Cubs' Adbert Alzolay: Gets another turn in rotation

      Adbert Alzolay is slated to start Monday's game against the Pirates, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.Alzolay appears set to keep his spot in the rotation over Tyler Chatwood after turning in back-to-back strong outings. While his workload has been restricted in both appearances (one start), Alzolay has given the Chicago Cubs 8.2 quality innings, yielding only two runs and striking out nine. He'll likely have his pitch count bumped up Monday.

      Cubs' Adbert Alzolay: Could stick in rotation

      With Cole Hamels (oblique) landing on the 10-day injured list after Friday's start, Adbert Alzolay could stick in the rotation for the time being.Alzolay had been working as a sixth pitcher to give other members of the Chicago Cubs' rotation some extra rest heading into the All-Star break, but with Kyle Hendricks (shoulder) and now Hamels on the shelf, Alzolay could stick in a more conventional fifth starter role for a while. Hendricks is expected back soon, but it's unclear how long Hamels might be out. The 24-year-old Alzolay has pitched well in his limited time in the majors, posting a 2.08 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with nine strikeouts in his first 8.2 innings. However, he's also walked six, so he'll need to exhibit better control to sustain his success. Alzolay is scheduled to make his second MLB start Monday against the Pirates.
