Casey Coleman struggled in his spot start against the Pirates on Tuesday, allowing four runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Coleman struck out five but also walked four. He was making the start in place of Ryan Dempster, who was traded to the Rangers at the July 31 deadline. This is likely a one-and-done situation for Coleman, as he’s slated to head back to his more familiar middle relief role.

Cubs recalled RHP Casey Coleman from Triple-A Iowa.

Coleman will replace Ryan Dempster in the rotation, at least in the short-term. The youngster is starting against the Pirates on Tuesday night in the first game of the post Dempster-Soto-Maholm-Johnson era. Coleman had a 7.32 ERA and 11/8 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings with the Cubs earlier this season and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
