The Cubs announced that they have designated Michael Bowden for assignment. In a related move, fellow right-hander Chang-Yong Lim has been promoted to the big league roster.
Bowden, 27 on Monday, has a 4.30 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 34 relief outings this season. In parts of six big league seasons, the 6'3" hurler owns a 4.51 ERA with 6.7 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9. This marks the second time that Bowden has been DFA'd by the Cubs this season – he was also removed from the 40-man back in May.
