Good news, Cubs closer Pedro Strop’s return is near. It’s reported on Monday that Strop will begin a rehab assignment for AAA Iowa on Tuesday.
Strop to start rehab Tuesday for Triple-A Iowa

Strop has been out since May 8th due to a left hamstring strain. Once he comes back, the Cubs will have a lot more stabilization in the bullpen. Strop is the closer when he returns.
He will have maybe 1 or 2 appearances for Iowa this week to get back into a groove.
