Cubs' RHP Veras goes on DL with oblique strain

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have placed struggling reliever Jose Veras on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Right-handed reliever Brian Schlitter was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to take Veras' spot in an inconsistent bullpen, and arrived in Milwaukee in time for Saturday night's game against the Brewers.

Veras had a 15.88 ERA over six games, blowing both his save opportunities. Chicago signed the righty in the offseason to a one-year deal after he had 21 saves in 2013 between Houston and Detroit.

Schlitter pitched six games for the Cubs this season before being sent down April 12. He had a 6.35 ERA with no record in Chicago, and a 3.60 ERA with three saves for Iowa.

The Cubs' bullpen overall was 1-5 with a 4.03 ERA entering Saturday.
