Cubs' Jen-Ho Tseng: Picks up first MLB win Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tseng (1-0) recorded his first MLB win in Thursday's game against the Cardinals. He tossed three scoreless innings, allowing one walk and striking out two.

After giving up five earned runs over three innings in his major-league debut on Sept. 14, Tseng was much sharper in this one, as he didn't allow any hits in his three innings of work. The 22-year-old posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 55 innings with Triple-A Iowa this season, and he could fight for a spot at the back end of the rotation or in the bullpen to begin 2018.

Cubs' Jen-Ho Tseng: Unlikely to pick up second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs announced that Mike Montgomery would start their first game of the week Tuesday against the Rays, likely meaning Tseng will head to the bullpen, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Chicago purchased Tseng's contract from Triple-A Iowa and called upon him to start Sept. 14 against the Mets, with the right-hander getting roughed up for five runs over three innings in his major-league debut. That performance wasn't enough for manager Joe Maddon to justify giving Tseng a second turn in the rotation, so he'll give Montgomery another look as the fifth starter. Montgomery could join Tseng in the bullpen by the weekend, as the Cubs are seemingly on track to have Jake Arrieta (hamstring) available to start during the team's four-game series with the Brewers that kicks off Thursday.

Cubs' Jen-Ho Tseng: Allows five runs in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tseng allowed five earned runs over three innings in his major league debut Thursday. He gave up five hits, posted a 6:1 K:BB, and did not factor into the decision in the Cubs' victory over the Mets.

Tseng experienced a lot of success in 24 minor league starts this year, but he showed Thursday he still has some work to do before finding the same at the top level. His standing in the rotation will primarily depend on whether or not Jake Arrieta (hamstring) returns to action next week, but manager Joe Maddon may elect to go in another direction even if Arrieta needs more time.

Cubs' Jen-Ho Tseng: Contract purchased ahead of Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tseng had his contract purchased from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday.

Tseng will join the big club ahead of his major-league debut Thursday. The 22-year-old posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 55 innings with Iowa this season, prompting manager Joe Maddon to give him a shot in the Cubs' rotation while Mike Montgomery shifts back to the bullpen to offer some extra depth down the stretch. He isn't guaranteed any starts beyond Thursday, but that could change if he pitches well.

Cubs' Jen-Ho Tseng: To start Thursday in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tseng will start Thursday's game against the Mets, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

He will take Mike Montgomery's spot in the rotation, but it could just be a spot start, as the Cubs would likely go in a different direction if Tseng really gets rocked in his debut. Jake Arrieta (hamstring) could also be ready to return to the rotation the next time the Cubs need a fifth starter on Sept. 23 in Milwaukee. Tseng doesn't get the same level of prospect hype as some of the Cubs' other pitching prospects, but he notched a 1.80 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 55 innings as a 22-year-old at Triple-A this year, so he has earned the look. His 17.7 percent strikeout rate with Iowa hints at a low ceiling, but he is certainly capable of pitching well enough to get the win opposite Seth Lugo.
