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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

July 7, 2018 08:32 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Bruce Miles of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

Maples was recalled prior to Sunday's game against the Twins and was promptly roughed up for five runs while recording only two outs. The 26-year-old returns to Iowa with Carl Edwards rejoining the Cubs' bullpen from the disabled list.

July 1, 2018 03:00 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Called up by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was recalled from Triple-A Iowa prior to Sunday's matchup against the Twins.

Maples will be the corresponding move following the placement of left-hander Brian Duensing (shoulder fatigue) on the disabled list. With five Chicago relievers now on the DL, the team will turn to the 26-year-old right-hander, who owns a 3.20 ERA at the Triple-A level. He's converted five of seven save opportunities for Iowa but has struggled a bit allowing baserunners with a 1.54 WHIP.

June 29, 2018 12:16 AM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Sent back down to Iowa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

Maples only spent a couple days in the big leagues, but was able to provide a quality appearance out of the bullpen against the Dodgers on Wednesday during his first time on the mound for the Cubs this season. In a corresponding move, Tyler Chatwood was activated from the paternity list. Look for Maples to rejoin the big-league team when bullpen replenishments are needed.

June 26, 2018 08:00 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Heading to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Maples had a brief stint with the Cubs last season -- six runs allowed over 5.1 innings -- and is headed to the majors for the first time in 2018. The 26-year-old has a 3.20 ERA and 1.54 WHIP with 42 strikeouts across 25.1 innings at Iowa this season, and should serve as a low-leverage reliever for Chicago.

June 14, 2018 11:00 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Pitching well lately
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After a slow start to the season, Maples has tossed eight straight scoreless innings out of the bullpen for Triple-A Iowa with 16 strikeouts to lower his season ERA to 3.74.

Maples had a 5.93 ERA on May 21 before the scoreless streak started. The 26-year-old righty posted a 1.96 ERA and 28 strikeouts over 18.1 innings at Triple-A last season before getting a short stint at the MLB level. If he keeps pitching like this, Maples could get another shot with the Cubs sometime this summer.

March 17, 2018 03:52 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Shipped back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Maples was an effective reliever in the minors last year (nine ER allowed in 32 MiLB innings pitched), but his showing this spring has left much to be desired. He allowed nine runs and walked six hitters in 5.2 frames in big-league camp, ultimately sealing his fate. Another strong campaign with the I-Cubs could warrant a callup later in the season, however.

September 21, 2017 01:36 PM
Cubs' Dillon Maples: Strikes out side Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maples pitched a scoreless inning in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, allowing one hit and striking out three.

Maples had allowed six earned runs in his first 2.1 innings of work, but he flashed his potential in this one. The 25-year-old posted a 2.27 ERA and 100 strikeouts in 63.1 innings across three minor-league levels this year, so the strikeout stuff appears to be there. Maples could push for a bigger role with the Cubs in 2018.
