  • Cubs' Ben Brown: Returning to game action

    Brown (oblique) will be activated from Triple-A Iowa's 7-day injured list and will pitch Sunday versus Toledo, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    The 23-year-old hasn't seen game action since late July, when he suffered an oblique injury. Brown has a 4.72 ERA in 14 starts for Iowa this season, but he gave up just three runs with a 16:6 K:BB in his three starts prior to landing on the injured list.

  • Cubs' Ben Brown: Managing oblique issue

    Brown was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Iowa on Aug. 2

    Brown appeared to find his groove at Triple-A with three runs allowed over 15 frames in his last three starts prior to landing on the injured list. The 23-year-old is one of the Cubs' top pitching prospects and could make his major-league debut by the end of the season if he's able to get healthy in time.

  • Cubs' Ben Brown: Walk machine for Iowa

    Brown has a 5.76 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 74 strikeouts in 50 innings across 12 starts for Triple-A Iowa.

    Brown's 15 percent walk rate and 1.6 HR/9 have resulted in ugly numbers despite a 32.7 percent strikeout rate. There have always been control/reliever concerns with Brown, and while he dominated in four Double-A starts to open the year, those concerns appear to be as real as ever for the 23-year-old righty.

  • Cubs' Ben Brown: Bumps up to Triple-A

    The Cubs promoted Brown from Double-A Tennessee to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday.

    Brown received the call to Triple-A after the Cubs summoned Caleb Kilian from Iowa to make a spot start this past weekend. Though Kilian has since been optioned back to Iowa, Brown looks like he'll keep a spot in the Triple-A rotation after he was unchallenged over his first four starts this season at Double-A. Over 20 innings with Tennessee, Brown compiled an 0.45 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 30:6 K:BB.
