Cubs send LHP Justin Steele to IL, RHP Ben Brown recalled

Cubs Ben Brown

The Chicago Cubs recalled pitching prospect Ben Brown on Saturday and placed left-hander Justin Steele on the 15-day injured list with a hamstring strain.

Steele was injured during his start Opening Day, giving up one run on three hits with six strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings against the Texas Rangers.

The Cubs’ rotation also is without right-hander Jameson Taillon because of a back injury.

Brown, 24, was acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies in a 2022 trade for right-hander David Robertson. At Triple-A Iowa and Double-A Tennessee last season, the right-hander was 8-8 with a 4.27 ERA in 26 appearances (19 starts).

Brown is sent to slide directly into Steele’s spot in the rotation, putting him in line to make his major league debut in the upcoming first home series against the Colorado Rockies.
