The Chicago Cubs today placed left-handed pitcher Sean Marshall on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle. The Cubs recalled right-handed pitchers David Aardsma and Michael Wuertz from Triple-A Iowa. Last night, the Cubs traded right-handed pitcher Scott Williamson to the San Diego Padres for two minor league pitching prospects.

Aardsma, 24, returns to the Cubs for his third stint with the club this season. He is 1-0 with a 5.89 ERA (12 ER/18.1 IP) in 18 appearances this year. He picked up his first win as a Cub on April 24 against Florida, allowing no hits in 1.0 scoreless inning of relief, striking out two batters. Has gone 2-3 with 8 saves at Iowa (AAA) with a 3.09 ERA (12 ER/35 IP). His ERA at Iowa's Principal Park is 0.00. He hasn't allowed a run to score in 18.2 innings of work.

Wuertz, 27, has appeared in four games for the Cubs this season with a 9.82 ERA (4 ER/3.2 IP). This will be his third stint with the Cubs this season after beginning the season. He has spent the majority of the year at Iowa (AAA), going 6-0 with 10 saves, 69 strikeouts and a 2.01 ERA (10 ER/44.2 IP).

Marshall is 5-8 with a 4.98 ERA (57ER/103.0 IP) this season for the Cubs in 19 starts. The 23-year-old ranks fifth among NL rookies with 103.0 innings pitched ... his 67 strikeouts rank sixth.
