Cubs' Justin Hancock: Sent back down to Iowa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hancock was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, The Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan reports.

Hancock tossed a perfect inning against the Reds on Thursday but will head back to Iowa in order to make room for Brian Duensing (bereavement) on the active roster. With that performance, Hancock lowered his ERA to 1.50 through 12 innings with the Cubs this year, so expect to see him back with the team in the near future.

Cubs' Brian Duensing: Activated from bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duensing was reinstated from the bereavement list prior to Friday's game, Paul Sullivan of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Duensing will return to the Cubs' bullpen after being away from the team for the past few days. Across 31 appearances this year, he's logged a 4.50 ERA and 1.55 WHIP but has only managed to record a 15:14 K:BB over 22 innings. In a corresponding move, Justin Hancock was optioned to Triple-A Iowa.

Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Throws off flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards (shoulder) has advanced to throwing off flat ground, Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com reports.

Edwards has moved past throwing the ball around and is beginning to work through a throwing program. The reliever has been sidelined since the end of May with right shoulder inflammation. He will likely require a multi-game appearance in the minor leagues before returning to Chicago, which seems to be a couple weeks away.

Cubs' Yu Darvish: Will throw bullpen Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darvish (triceps) is expected to embark on a rehab assignment Monday if all goes according to plan during his bullpen session prior to Friday's game against Cincinnati, Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com reports.

Darvish threw a pain-free 50-pitch simulated game Wednesday and will ramp up his efforts in the days to come as he continues to work back from a triceps injury. The right-hander is expected to require just the one rehab outing, so he could be back in action with the Cubs next weekend.
