Trevor Megill‘s encouraging stint with the Cubs has come to a screeching halt.
The Cubs placed the right hander on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain and recalled southpaw Kyle Ryan from the South Bend Alternate Site Friday afternoon.
Megill has pitched well in his two appearances, not allowing a run and touching upper 90s heat with the fastball.
The move came out of nowhere after he pitched a clean inning Thursday in Atlanta. We’ll see where he stands once his stint on the injured list ends.
Ryan adds another left-handed arm to the bullpen for the Cubs.
