Cubs Activate Pitcher from Injured List

He's been on the COVID-19 injured list since August 02. 

The Chicago Cubs have activated pitcher Steven Brault. 

Brault has been perfect for the Cubs' organization this season. In 5.2 innings for the Cubs this season, he's allowed zero runs while striking out five. In Triple-A, Brault has also allowed zero runs across seven innings to go along with eight strikeouts. He's recorded two wins. 

Perfect season so far, in a very small sample size, for Brault.

The Cubs signed Brault to a one-year deal this past March and they haven't seen much of him as he's dealt with injuries all season. 

Prior to this season, the thirty-year-old had spent his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, posting an underwhelming 4.77 ERA with 291 strikeouts over 343 innings. 

He'll be a middle-relief option down the stretch for the Cubs.
