Cubs Demote Stevens, Promote Schlitter

Via tweet from the Sun-Times’ Gordon Wittenmyer:

Schlitter brought up from AAA to help spent pen. Stevens optioned.

Brian Schlitter, a Chicago-area native, was acquired by the Cubs from the Phillies in the Scott Eyre deal in 2008. He will make his major league debut with his first appearance and will have to be added to the 40-man roster, which currently stands at 39 players. Schlitter will wear uniform #51.
