On Tuesday, Andrew Cashner made his major-league debut, allowing just three baserunners and a run through 5 1/3 innings. On Wednesday, he made his debut on the major-league disabled list with a strained rotator cuff.
Oh, and Cashner isn't the only one. Randy Wells is also headed to the DL with forearm strain.
Cashner and Wells pitched well the last two days. Cashner left with a 4-1 lead that the bullpen blew before a comeback victory against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, while Wells picked up the win on Monday, allowing six hits and a run in six innings.
Cubs manager Mike Quade said he won't have either for the next three or four weeks, but did say, "This could be a lot worse."
It could, but it's not real good right now.
Casey Coleman will be called up from Triple-A Iowa to join the Cubs' rotation.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
