Bowen came to the Cubs along with minor league outfielder Kyler Burke in a trade on June 20 that sent Barrett to the Padres. But Bowen batted just .065 (2-for-31) with two RBIs in 10 games for Chicago. He has a .212 average in 40 games overall with the Padres and Cubs.
The Cubs also agreed to pay $1.5 million of the $2.47 million that was left on Barrett's contract at the time of the deal.
Bowen's departure leaves Geovany Soto and Koyie Hill as Chicago's catchers.
The Cubs also recalled right-hander Billy Petrick from Triple-A Iowa. It will be the 23-year-old reliever's third stint with Chicago. In four relief appearances with the Cubs this season he is 0-0 with a 3.18 ERA.
