Cubs recall RHP Justin Grimm from Triple-A Iowa … Place RHP Jason Hammel on bereavement list
The Cubs made two roster moves Wednesday morning. Jason Hammel was placed on the bereavement list. The Cubs recalled Justin Grimm from Triple-A Iowa to fill his spot on the 25-man roster.
By rule, Jason Hammel can be on the bereavement list three to seven days. The Cubs have not said when Hammel will return to the team but he’s not expected to miss his next start on Tuesday at Wrigley against the Angels.
Condolences and prayers to Jason Hammel and his family during this time.
Justin Grimm is at Wrigley Field and will be available out of the bullpen for Joe Maddon in the finale of the three-game series with the Marlins. The Cubs active roster consists of 13 pitchers (four starters, nine relievers) and 12 position players.
