Just before Friday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Chicago Cubs announced that RHP Shelby Miller has been placed on the 10-day IL with a lower back strain. The designation is retroactive to April 22.

To replace Miller on the roster, the Cubs have recalled LHP Kyle Ryan from the team’s alternate site in South Bend, Indiana.

In 2021, Miller has pitched a total of 2.0 innings in three appearances. His ERA sits at a whopping 31.50, and his WHIP is 6.00. Miller was roughed up in his first two appearances of the season, but he looked solid on Wednesday night in the Cubs’ 16-4 win over the Mets.

This is Kyle Ryan’s first time on the big league roster this season. Ryan was a staple in the Cubs’ bullpen in 2019 and 2020. He pitched in 73 games in 2019, and last season pitched in 18 games. Ryan struggled a bit in 2020, but a rebound 2021 season could mean similar numbers to his sensational 2019 season.

The Cubs host the Brewers on Friday afternoon, opening a three-game set with their NL Central rival. First pitch is scheduled for 1:20 PM CDT and the game can be found on 670 The Score and Marquee Sports Network.
