Cubs activate Ramirez, put Wada on DL

The Cubs made some moves with their pitching staff on Sunday as Neil Ramirez was activated from the disabled list and Tsuyoshi Wada was placed on the DL. Wada was placed on the 15-day DL with left deltoid inflammation. "He's better, but not where he needs to be," Maddon told Cubs.com. "We'll give him a little bit more time. We don't want to run him out there unless he's feeling...

Tsuyoshi Wada: Certified Badass

Perhaps lost in tonight’s victory highlights was Chicago Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada‘s bullpen-saving performance against the Cleveland Indians.  Wada ate up seven mostly drama-free innings, throwing only 107 pitches, 69 for strikes (nice) and buoyed by the Cubs offense to keep pumping the zone early on in the game.  After the game…well, let’s let the Cubs beat guys tell...

Cubs will keep Wada in rotation

Tsuyoshi Wada has struggled recently, but the left-hander, at least for now, is still in the Cubs rotation. “He has to go back to being a little more primal,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon told CSN Chicago. “… It’s not a whole lot different than when he was going really good except I don’t see that real aggressive, confident nature.” Wada has given up eight runs in...

Chicago Cubs: No need to panic

He's so money: Cubs starter finds credit card on field

Give credit where credit is due. Chicago Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada was solid Wednesday night (4 2/3 innings, 2 earned runs, 9 Ks) but he was also so money during the Cubs' 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres. As Wada walked off the field in the third inning, he reached down and picked up a credit card. Take a look for yourself. Wada did the right thing, handing the card to a Petco Park official.
