Cubs' Dillon Maples: Sent to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Chicago's alternate camp site Thursday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

This move comes after Maples failed to record an out during his appearance against the Reds on Wednesday, where he allowed three runs (two earned) on one hit and four walks before exiting. Righty Colin Rea was summoned to the majors in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Headed to Wrigley Field for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season and will head to Wrigley Field for summer camp.

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa back in March, but he's now technically back with the big-league club. He's still not a lock to make the Opening Day roster, as the Cubs are carrying 39 players (including 22 pitchers) in their Wrigley Field group and can only have 30 on their final roster. Maples appeared in 14 games for the Cubs last season and logged 38 games for Triple-A Iowa. He did tally 97 strikeouts across 54.2 innings combined at the two levels, so he does bring some swing-and-miss stuff to the table.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Headed to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Maples was in competition for a spot in the big-league club's bullpen, though he'll now presumably start the season in the minors. He threw sparingly prior to the suspension of the Cactus league, striking out three and walking one across two innings of work. Maples has pitched for the Cubs in each of the past three seasons, so he'll likely serve as bullpen depth at some point once the campaign begins.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Competing for final bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples, who has yet to appear in a Cactus League game this spring, is competing for one of the team's final bullpen spots to begin the year, Russell Dorsey of MLB.com reports.

Maples threw live batting practice Sunday for the second time this spring, and manager David Ross said the righty should appear in a game soon. Once Maples gets rolling in the Cactus League, expect him to get a long look as the Cubs figure out the back of their bullpen. The 27-year-old bounced between Triple-A and the majors last season, ultimately posting a 5.40 ERA and 18 strikeouts across 11.2 innings with Chicago.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled by the Cubs on Friday.

Maples has gotten into 11 games for the Cubs this season, posting a 6.75 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP in 9.1 innings. His 31.1 percent strikeout rate is strong, but his 22.2 percent walk rate is quite poor, and his 19.2 percent walk rate for Triple-A Iowa is similarly worrisome.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Back in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old returns to the minors after struggling in his lone major-league appearance after being recalled -- allowing two home runs in 1.1 innings -- with Kyle Ryan (personal) activated from the bereavement list. Maples owns a 4.72 ERA with a 63:30 K:BB in 34.1 innings pitched with Triple-A Iowa this season.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Maples owns a 5.63 ERA and 1.75 WHIP with a 13:10 K:BB over eight innings this season for the Cubs. He'll get another shot in the big leagues after the Cubs placed Steve Cishek on the injured list with left hip inflammation.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Maples' latest stay with the Cubs lasted just four days. He was busy but also very ineffective, allowing five runs in 2.1 innings over three appearances. Robel Garcia was promoted in a corresponding move.

June 29, 2019 01:32 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Recalled by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Maples has had trouble with walks at the big-league level this season, issuing nine free passes over 5.2 innings, but he has also struck out 10 batters and has allowed just one hit. He will provide some depth at the back end of the Cubs' bullpen.

June 4, 2019 01:48 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

Maples has thrown 5.2 scoreless innings for the Cubs this season, though his 10:9 K:BB isn't particularly encouraging. He'll make way on the active roster for Pedro Strop (hamstring), who was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday.

He has a 4.61 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 13.2 innings at Triple-A. Maples has electric stuff, but his shaky command/control will likely confine him to low-leverage situations during this major-league stint.

May 6, 2019 04:48 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Returned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Maples made three appearances during his time with the big club, striking out six batters and not allowing a hit across 2.2 scoreless innings, though he did walk five batters during that stretch. Carl Edwards was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move and will take his place in the bullpen.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Maples should have an opportunity over the next few days to make his 2019 big-league debut. He owns a 3.38 ERA with 16 strikeouts over eight innings for Iowa this season.

March 24, 2019 11:04 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Heading to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Maples was in consideration for an Opening Day roster spot due to the Cubs' injury issues but will instead begin the season at Triple-A. The 26-year-old has brief major-league stints over the last two seasons (10.2 total innings) but struggled with a 10.97 ERA, 2.25 WHIP and 20:11 K:BB. Maples has featured an impressive 16.3 K/9 at Triple-A, but the 7.9 BB/9 remains a significant limitation for his major-league potential.

Cubs' Dillon Maples: Could make bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples is an option to begin the season in the Cubs' bullpen with several other relievers dealing with injuries, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Brandon Morrow (elbow), Tony Barnette (shoulder) and Xavier Cedeno (wrist) have all been ruled out for the start of the season, and Pedro Strop (hamstring) has also been slowed down a bit in camp. The injuries could open up a spot for Maples in the bullpen, though of course he could be shipped down to Triple-A when some of the aforementioned relievers get healthy. Maples had a 42.4 percent strikeout rate at Triple-A last season, but his 22 percent walk rate will need to improve if he wants to find consistent success.

August 31, 2018 06:28 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was called up from Triple-A Iowa on Friday.

Maples will add some depth to the Cubs' bullpen after spending the past week in the minors. Across three appearances with the team this year, he's given up five earned runs in 3.1 innings of relief. Look for him in low-leverage spots.

August 24, 2018 12:04 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Sent right back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday.

Maples was up with the Cubs for just a single day and did not make an appearance. He could be back up in the majors when rosters expand in September. The 26-year-old has allowed 11 runs in 8.2 career innings, striking out an excellent 38.6 percent of batters while walking an untenable 20.5 percent.

August 23, 2018 06:24 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Summoned from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Maples will take the roster spot of Tyler Chatwood (hip), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. The 26-year-old owns a solid 2.41 ERA and 71:37 K:BB across 37.1 innings with Triple-A Iowa this season, though he's struggled during his limited time with the big club, allowing five runs through 3.1 innings. Seeing as the Cubs will need to free up a roster spot for Friday's starter, Alec Mills, Maples' stay in the majors could be a brief one.

July 22, 2018 01:28 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

The Cubs needed to send down a reliever after they added a 26th man to the roster for Saturday's doubleheader, and Maples ended up being the choice over Luke Farrell, who is a candidate to make a spot start Monday against the Diamondbacks. Maples retired both of the batters he faced via strikeout in the first game of the twin bill, which marked his third appearance of the season with the Cubs.

July 21, 2018 11:12 AM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Called up from Iowa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Maples will be available out of the bullpen for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. Across two appearances with the Cubs this year, he's given up five earned runs over 2.2 innings, so don't expect to see him utilized in any sort of high-leverage situation.
