CHRIS RUSIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cubs Prospect Claimed Off Waivers

After several years of bouncing between Iowa and Chicago, Chris Rusin will finally be getting his chance to prove himself full time on a major league club. Unfortunately, it won’t be for the Cubs. Late Saturday evening, Gordon Wittenmyer reported the Colorado Rockies claimed the 27-year-old off waivers. Rusin, who has four career wins, was drafted in the 4th round of the 2009...

Cubs minor-leaguer Chris Rusin tosses no-hitter

For the second straight year, a Cubs minor-leaguer recorded a no-hitter. Chris Rusin hurled a no-no with Triple-A Iowa Wednesday afternoon, shutting down the New Orleans Zephyrs on the road. It was Iowa's first no-hitter since August 1984. Rusin was a one-man wrecking crew, recording two hits and two RBI at the plate in the 3-0 victory, allowing just two walks and striking...

Chicago Cubs option Chris Rusin to Triple-A Iowa

The Chicago Cubs called up left handed starting pitcher Chris Rusin from Triple-A Iowa, which resulted in the Cubs sending down reliever Brian Schlitter. Rusin and Carlos Villanueva were battling for the fifth and final spot in the starting rotation for the Cubs during the final stretch of Cactus League ply. Villanueva did just enough to take the job away from Rusin, who started...

Rusin's wildness costs Cubs in 7-0 loss to Brewers

Although Sean Halton's first career grand slam was the big blow, it was Chris Rusin's pitches out of the strike zone that proved more costly to the Cubs. Halton's homer capped a five-run first inning that included two walks by Rusin (2-5) and Tyler Thornburg allowed just two singles over six innings as the Milwaukee Brewers beat Chicago 7-0 on Wednesday night. '...

Rusin solid again but Cubs lose to Pirates 3-1

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum isn't quite ready to give Chris Rusin a spot in the rotation next spring. If Rusin's argument gets any more compelling over the next two weeks, Sveum might not have much of a choice. Rusin pitched seven effective innings in a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night, allowing two runs and four hits while striking out two. He extended...

Cubs, Rusin relish feats in win at St. Louis

Manager Dale Sveum quickly stated it was too early to assume that left-hander Chris Rusin was pitching himself into contention for a spot in the Chicago Cubs’ rotation in 2014. “There’s eight months till spring training so we’ll cross those bridges when we get to them” Svuem said. But Sveum Rusin and his teammates enjoyed the moment Friday night after Rusin helped the...

I-Cubs (Dar)Win Again!

Crafty Chris Rusin worked seven strong innings under the weather, you might say, in pitching the Iowa Cubs to their second straight win over the Albuquerque Isotopes this afternoon at Principal Park. He wasn't sick. He just kept the ball down (to the tune of 11 ground outs) and out of the southerly jet stream blowing toward the fences as the I-Cubs notched consecutive W'...
