Cubs' Cory Abbott: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Abbott was recalled by the Cubs on Tuesday, but he'll return to the minors after he allowed three runs on three hits and two walks in one inning of relief during Wednesday's loss to the Reds. He could rejoin the Cubs as a low-leverage reliever at some point later in the campaign

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs recalled Abbott from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The righty has pitched 11.1 innings of relief for the Cubs this season, posting a 6.35 ERA with eight strikeouts and seven walks across his five appearances. It's unclear what the intended role is for Abbott, who has been starting in Triple-A but has only worked as a reliever at the big-league level.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

Abbott was only with the big-league club for two days and got knocked around in his lone appearance, allowing four runs in three innings of relief against the Phillies on Thursday. He now owns a 6.35 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 11.1 innings thus far in his rookie season.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Rejoins Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbot was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

The right-hander will rejoin the big-league club after spending the past couple weeks in the minors. He's worked out of the bullpen for the Cubs this season with four runs allowed over 8.1 frames in four appearances, but he's operated as a starter at Triple-A. Abbott and Trevor Williams should be in the mix for a spot start Sunday with Jake Arrieta (hamstring) landing on the injured list.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs optioned Abbott to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.

Abbott was sent back to the minors to make room on the active roster for Kyle Ryan, who was called up from Iowa in a corresponding move. The 25-year-old right-hander saw sparse action out of the Chicago bullpen upon being promoted June 5, appearing in four games while posting a 4.32 ERA in 8.1 innings. The Cubs will likely transition him back into a starting role once he rejoins Iowa.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Recalled by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The righty has yielded one earned run in 3.1 innings of relief with the big-league club this season. Abbott has struggled at Triple-A, though, pitching to a 6.03 ERA in 31.1 innings. He's been plagued by the long ball, allowing eight at that level in 2021. Abbott may be called upon for some middle-relief work Wednesday, as spot starter Robert Stock is not expected to have an extended outing against the Mets.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The 25-year-old was called up over the weekend and allowed three runs (one earned) on five hits with two strikeouts and a walk over 3.1 innings during his first taste of the majors. Alec Mills (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Makes successful MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott pitched two scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's loss to the Giants. He allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one.

Abbott was called up from Triple-A Iowa earlier in the day and was effective in his MLB debut. The 25-year-old had a 6.39 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in five starts for Iowa before getting the call, so expectations should be tempered, though he at least made a good first impression. Abbott will serve out of the Cubs' bullpen for the time being but could be an option for some spot starts.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Recalled by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott was recalled by the Cubs on Saturday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

The Cubs added Abbott to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, and he'll now be available to make his major-league debut out of the bullpen. The right-hander made five starts for Triple-A Iowa to begin the year and posted a 6.39 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 25.1 innings. Although Abbott will serve as a reliever to begin his time in the big leagues, he could also fill in as a starter if needed.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott's contract was selected by the Cubs on Friday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The move shields the 25-year-old righty from selection in the Rule 5 draft. Abbott spent all of the 2020 season training at the Cubs' alternate camp. In 2019, he made 26 starts for Double-A Tennessee, cruising to a 3.01 ERA and a 27.8 percent strikeout rate.

Cubs' Cory Abbott: Joins player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abbott was added to Chicago's 60-man player pool Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Abbott will report to the team's alternate camp site in South Bend, Indiana, where he'll continue his development after spending the entire 2019 season with Double-A Tennessee. Across 26 starts with the Smokies last season, Abbott posted a 3.01 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 166:52 K:BB in 146.2 innings.
