Chicago Cubs Outright Alex Hinshaw To Triple-A

The Chicago Cubs have outrighted relief pitcher Alex Hinshaw to Triple-A Iowa, according to the Pacific Coast League's official transaction page. The left-hander was designated for assignment by the Cubs last Tuesday, just nine days after the team claimed him off waivers from the San Diego Padres.

Hinshaw has pitched 28.1 innings in the big leagues this season, but he only recorded one out with the Cubs before being removed from the 40-man roster. He posted a solid 4.50 ERA in 28 innings with the Padres before they let him go, but he allowed five runs without recording an out in his final appearance with Chicago.

Overall, Hinshaw has appeared in 90 total games in the big leagues, posting a 5.11 ERA with 85 strikeouts and 57 walks in 74 innings. In 153 innings of Triple-A ball, he's posted a 4.23 ERA with 187 strikeouts and 97 walks.
