The Cubs are giving Robel Garcia a try.
Garcia has been in the Minor Leagues/Italy since 2010 but has never been called-up to the Major Leagues, until today.
Cubs president Theo Epstein said the Cubs are calling-up Garcia and sending Dillon Maples down to Iowa.
Garcia has been on fire this season for Triple-A affiliate Iowa and Double-A affiliate Tennessee. He is hitting a combined .285 with 21 homers and 58 RBI in 72 games.
Robel primarily plays 2nd base, though can play multiple infield positions.
