CINCINNATI – The Chicago Cubs today recalled right-handed pitcher Adbert Alzolay from the club’s South Bend Alternate Site. He will serve as the “29th man” today for the club’s doubleheader at the Cincinnati Reds.

Alzolay, 25, has made one start for the Cubs this season, tossing five innings and allowing no earned runs and two hits with one walk and six strikeouts in a no-decision in Chicago’s 4-2 win against St. Louis on August 19. He made his major league debut last season and went 1-1 with a 7.30 ERA (10 ER/12.1 IP) in four appearances (two starts) with the Cubs. He went 2-4 with a 4.41 ERA (32 ER/65.1 IP) in 15 starts with Iowa last season, recording 91 strikeouts 65.1 innings pitched while limiting foes to a .215 batting average.

The righthander was originally signed by the Cubs at the age of 18 as a non-drafted free agent in 2012. A native of Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela, Alzolay has gone 33-27 with a 1.16 WHIP and 3.63 ERA (198 ER/491.0 IP) in 105 appearances, 84 as a starter, covering seven seasons in the Cubs minor league system.
