  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Cubs optioned Cuas to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    With Drew Smyly (hip) returning from the injured list, Cuas will be pushed back down to Triple-A after nearly two weeks in the majors. The 29-year-old right-hander gave up three earned runs in 5.1 innings during his latest stint in the majors, and he figures to be on the short list to return to the Cubs' bullpen if they find themselves in need of a fresh arm.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Back in bullpen

    The Cubs recalled Cuas from Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Cuas had just been sent down a day ago, but he's back to replace Adbert Alzolay (forearm), who was placed on the 15-day injured list. He will be used in low-leverage spots.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Cubs optioned Cuas to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Cuas' stay with the big club lasted just one day, with the Cubs sending him back to Triple-A to clear room on the 26-man active roster for right-hander Kyle Hendricks (back), who was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start Sunday in Pittsburgh. The 29-year-old righty covered two scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 10-9 loss to the Pirates, striking out two while giving up one hit and one walk.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Recalled from Triple-A

    Cuas was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Cuas, who has given up eight earned runs in six MLB innings through five appearances this year, should work in low-leverage situations. He has 17 strikeouts and a 4.32 ERA in 8.1 innings at Triple-A.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Optioned to Iowa

    Cuas was optioned to Triple-Iowa on Thursday.

    Cuas was projected to serve in a prominent role in the Cubs' bullpen, but he surrendered at least one earned run in four of his first five appearances to begin the campaign. He'll look to get on track at Iowa and has a good chance to return to the majors fairly quickly.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Sharp in 2024 debut

    Cuas pitched 1.1 scoreless innings of relief with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

    Starter Kyle Hendricks was tagged for five runs while reliever Ben Brown gave up six, but Cuas was effective against a tough Texas lineup. The righty struck out 71 batters across 65.1 innings last season, and if he can continue to miss bats at a high rate, he may see more high-leverage work as the year goes on.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Set for Opening Day role

    Cuas will begin the regular season in the Cubs' bullpen, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Cuas was solid last year, compiling a 3.99 ERA and 71 strikeouts across 65.1 innings with the Royals and Cubs, and he looked sharp in spring training as well. The righty will parlay that into an Opening Day role, and while he should slot in behind Adbert Alzolay and Hector Neris, he could still see some high-leverage innings for Chicago.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Allows first spring run

    Cuas allowed a run on three hits in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, pushing his spring ERA to 1.50.

    Cuas came into the game having logged five straight scoreless appearances this spring, and he's struck out eight batters in six innings overall. The righty is trying to build on an effective 2023 campaign, when he posted a 3.99 ERA and struck out 71 across 65.1 total innings with the Cubs and Royals. Cuas will likely work in middle relief, however, which limits his fantasy appeal.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Earns first save Saturday

    Cuas picked up the save Saturday against Colorado. He issued one walk and notched one strikeout over a scoreless ninth inning.

    The 29-year-old Cuas was called upon to preserve Chicago's three-run, ninth-inning lead and successfully earned his first save of the campaign by retiring three of the four batters he faced on 18 pitches. The righty was simply filling in and is not expected to receive regular save opportunities in the final week of the regular season with Adbert Alzolay (forearm) soon expected back from the injured list.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Pitches ninth inning Monday

    Cuas pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Monday's 5-0 win over the Giants. He struck out one.

    It wasn't a save situation for Cuas, but the game wasn't entirely out of reach either, and it was a matchup against a team jockeying with the Cubs for a playoff spot. Cuas looked comfortable closing out the important win, and he's been solid this season with a 3.56 ERA and 61 strikeouts across 55.2 innings of relief. The 29-year-old isn't in the mix for saves, though he's become a trusted option for Chicago down the stretch, which could lead to some holds or wins occasionally.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Back from bereavement list

    The Cubs reinstated Cuas from the bereavement list ahead of his start Friday in the second game of a doubleheader against Cincinnati, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    After three games away from the team, Cuas will return to the Cubs' roster. The 29-year-old righty holds a 3.69 ERA through 53.2 innings this season and will likely only remain on the mound for an inning or two as Chicago rolls with a bullpen game. Anthony Kay was optioned to Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Goes on bereavement leave

    The Cubs placed Cuas on the bereavement list Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Cuas will likely miss at least the final two games of the Cubs' current three-game series versus the Brewers. Anthony Kay has been called up from Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding roster move.

  • Cubs' Jose Cuas: Headed to Windy City

    The Royals traded Cuas to the Cubs on Monday in exchange for Nelson Velazquez.

    Cuas hasn't been particularly reliable out of the bullpen for the Royals this season with a 4.54 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 41.2 innings. Nonetheless, he'll add depth to a Cubs bullpen that has already dealt with a handful of injuries throughout the year.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Opener assignment Thursday

    Cuas will serve as the Royals' opener Thursday against the Rays, Anne Rogers of reports.

    It will be his first career start, though Cuas is probably only going to work the first inning before giving way to a parade of other Kansas City relievers. Austin Cox could be the bulk man, per Rogers, and Brooks Kriske should also be available to cover a frame or two. Cuas, 28, carries a 4.15 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 32 appearances this year.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Collects third win

    Cuas (3-0) earned the win Tuesday over the Tigers, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out two over 1.1 innings.

    Mike Mayers pitched well but came up an out short of qualifying for the win after running into trouble in the fifth inning. Cuas entered with runners on the corners and two outs and proceeded to allow an inherited runner to score before ending the inning. Cuas loaded the bases himself in the sixth, but he worked out of the jam with no additional damage done, and the Tigers never got close to mounting a comeback. He's avoided being charged with a run in seven of his last eight outings. For the season, Cuas has a 4.15 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 28:8 K:BB with one hold over 21.2 innings in a low-leverage role.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Nabs win in return to big club

    Cuas (2-0) retired the only batter he faced to earn the win in Monday's 12-5 victory over the White Sox.

    Cuas got Hanser Alberto to fly out to end the sixth inning. The Royals then rallied for eight runs in their half of the frame, putting Cuas in line for his second win of the campaign. The right-hander hasn't seen a lot of high-leverage looks, though this was one of them as he worked in a tie game. He has a mediocre 5.52 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 17:4 K:BB through 14.2 innings this season. He could be the player optioned out when Daniel Lynch (shoulder) is activated from the injured list, as the Royals have only four starters on the active roster currently.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Called up to big leagues

    The Royals recalled Cuas from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

    Cuas was optioned to Triple-A less than a week ago, but he'll be eligible to rejoin the Royals after the team placed Ryan Yarbrough (head) on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. While he's up with Kansas City, Cuas will likely operate as a low-leverage relief arm.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Sent to Triple-A

    Cuas was optioned Wednesday to Triple-A Omaha.

    Austin Cox will join the Royals' bullpen in a corresponding 26-man roster move. Cuas, 28, allowed two earned runs over 1.1 innings of relief in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles, raising his season ERA to 5.65 over 14.1 total frames.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Snags first win

    Cuas (1-0) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out two over one inning but earned the win Saturday over the Angels.

    Cuas surrendered a two-run home run to Matt Thaiss in the eighth inning that put the Royals behind 8-6. They rallied for five runs in the ninth, and that allowed Cuas to back into the win. The right-hander has been far from steady so far -- he's been scored on in six of his nine outings while yielding three home runs in 9.1 innings. He has a 6.75 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 14:3 K:BB. With Scott Barlow and Aroldis Chapman seeing the bulk of the high-leverage work, Cuas is likely to remain a middle reliever.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Makes Opening Day roster

    Cuas made the Royals' Opening Day roster.

    Cuas had a rough spring, allowing five earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over 6.1 innings. He closed last season with Triple-A Omaha, and he'll likely bounce between levels again 2023. While with the Royals, Cuas can be expected to serve in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.
