Cubs call up Maine for 'pen help

The Chicago Cubs promoted left-handed pitcher Scott Maine from Triple-A Iowa on Monday to temporarily fill the spot left open by Carlos Zambrano being placed on the disqualification list. Maine is available to play in Monday's game against the Astros.

Mike Quade’s bullpen was depleted over the weekend as the Cubs had 12 bullpen innings over the last three games.

On Wednesday, the Cubs will change their focus and promote Casey Coleman from Iowa to pitch in Zambrano’s rotation spot, according to a source familiar with the situation.
