Cubs' Brian Duensing: Placed on bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duensing was placed on the bereavement list Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Rob Zastryzny will take Duensing's place on the active roster and in the bullpen. Duensing will be away from the Cubs for 3-to-7 days, meaning he'll be unavailable for the team's entire three-game series against the Dodgers that starts Monday.

Cubs' Brian Duensing: Appears in left field Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duensing and fellow pitcher Steve CIshek both appeared in left field in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the Brewers, though neither player had a fielding chance, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

CIshek started the eighth inning and allowed a leadoff single to Orlando Arcia. That's when Cubs manager Joe Maddon turned to the lefty Duensing for the left-handed Eric Thames, but he kept Cishek in the game by moving him to left field. Duensing struck out Thames and then swapped places with Cishek, allowing the latter to face righty Lorenzo Cain. Cishek retired Cain, then gave way to Duensing to get another lefty, Christian Yelich, to end the inning. "It was a little terrifying, to be honest," said Duensing, who made his MLB outfield debut. The strategy was effective, so Maddon may be inclined to try it again down the road.

Cubs' Brian Duensing: Implodes in Sunday appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duensing struggled in Sunday's loss to the Pirates, allowing four earned runs on two hits and two walks while retiring just a single batter.

Duensing came on to begin the sixth inning and promptly allowed a double to Austin Meadows. He retired the next hitter he faced, but then gave up a walk, a single and another walk before getting the hook. Luke Farrell then allowed a bases-clearing triple, with all three runs getting charged to Duensing. The lefty's ERA jumped from 2.29 to 4.05 after the tough outing.

Cubs' Brian Duensing: Gets first save of season Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duensing recorded his first save of the season in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Mets, working a scoreless ninth inning with one hit allowed.

Regular closer Brandon Morrow appeared in the previous three games, so Cubs manager Joe Maddon turned to the lefty Duensing to finish Sunday's contest. Steve Cishek, who appeared in the eighth inning to retire a single hitter, appeared to be next in line for saves behind Morrow, but Maddon played the matchups with left-handed hitters Michael Conforto and Adrian Gonzalez up in the final inning. Duensing now has a solid 1.93 ERA this season.

Cubs' Brian Duensing: Keeps scoreless streak going
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duensing tossed a scoreless inning of relief in Friday's loss to the Cardinals, keeping his season ERA at a flawless 0.00.

Duensing has been brilliant through 10 innings this season, though his 8:5 K:BB and 3.40 FIP are more indicative of what to expect the rest of the season. The lefty posted a 3.46 FIP and 2.74 ERA last year, so it's reasonable to think his 2018 numbers will end up looking similar. Nonetheless, Duensing has been a very steady reliever in his first two seasons with the Cubs.
