Pie to Be Recalled....and Another Arm?

Jim Hendry was on Sports Central with Dave Kaplan on Monday night and said Felix Pie will be recalled and with the Cubs on Tuesday in St. Louis. The I-Cubs were eliminated from the PCL playoffs on Sunday.

Hendry also stated another pitcher would be called up from the minors and the announcement would be made before Tuesday's game. Hendry did not mention the player by name. He added with Jon Lieber done for the season and Chad Gaudin's lingering back injury they needed to add another arm.

The only healthy arms not currently with the big club and on the 40-man roster are Jose Ascanio and Carmen Pignatiello. Neither fared too well down the stretch for the Iowa Cubs....so a roster move could be on the horizon.
