Manny Corpas was ejected from Thursday's game against the Nationals in the sixth inning for his involvement in a benches-clearing incident.

Cubs purchased the contract of RHP Manny Corpas from Triple-A Iowa.

As expected. Corpas, who missed the entire 2011 season recovering from Tommy John surgery, posted a 4.01 ERA and 19/9 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level this year. He'll likely start out in middle relief, but could pitch his way into a more prominent role given the uncertainty in the Cubs' bullpen.

According to Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago, the Cubs are calling up right-hander Manny Corpas from Triple-A Iowa.

There's nothing official yet and the corresponding roster move isn't yet known. Corpas signed with the Cubs in December after missing the entire 2011 season following Tommy John surgery. Now 29 years old, he has a 4.01 ERA and 19/9 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level this season. The backend of the Cubs' bullpen is a complete mess, so we wouldn't rule out Corpas getting a shot at closer if he pitches well.

Cubs signed RHP Manny Corpas.

It was reported last week as a one-year major-league deal, but it's actually a non-guaranteed split contract.

The 29-year-old right-hander has a 3.93 ERA over 280 appearances in the majors, averaging 6.5 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9.
