here are the details.

Cubs will recall Kilian for Wednesday start against Padres originally appeared on nbc sports chicago

the puppies will call up top pitching prospect Caleb Kilian from Triple-A Iowa to start Wednesday against the Padres, manager David Ross announced.

Kilian pitched a solid five innings in his major league debut on June 4 against the Cardinals. The Cubs shipped him back to Iowa after that start, but the rotation has since been hit hard by injuries in recent days.

Marcus Stroman (Friday) and Wade Miley (Saturday) each landed on the disabled list over the weekend.

“He got off to a really good start last time,” Ross said after Tuesday’s 12-5 loss to the Padres. “I think he probably learned a few things from that, and we’ll go out here and compete again.

Because Kilian hasn’t spent 15 days in the minor leagues since his option, the Cubs will have to make an IL move to call him back.

Kilian, 25, was perfect for three innings in his debut before allowing three runs in the fourth inning. He bounced back with a scoreless fifth inning to finish strong.

Ross and Kilian had a constructive conversation after his debut that included Jed Hoyer and Tommy Hottovy, allowing Kilian to assess his performance.

Ross didn’t want to put expectations on Kilian’s shoulders for Wednesday’s start.

“We have to give the young man a body of work before we start tweaking and changing,” Ross said. “Let’s see what kind of pitcher he is first before we start suggesting he should do something different.

“I think the version of him that we saw last time is good enough. We scored a couple of runs and played good defense behind him, we’ll have a chance to win the game.”
