HOUSTON (AP) -The Chicago Cubs recalled right-hander Sean Gallagher from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday and optioned left-hander Will Ohman to their top farm club.
Gallagher has a 5.73 ERA and one save over 11 innings with the Cubs this season. He is up with Chicago for the third time this year.
He also has played for Double-A Tennessee and Iowa, and has a 10-3 combined record with a 3.03 ERA in 16 starts.
``We did it to give us some more innings in the bullpen,'' manager Lou Piniella said. ``He has been throwing the ball well in Triple-A. We'll use him in long relief, to eat up innings.''
Piniella said Gallagher may also get an occasional spot start.
Ohman was 1-4 with a 5.06 ERA for Chicago this season. He has a 4.34 ERA in 211 career relief appearances.
