Cubs Recall Pitcher Dominating in the Minors

Now, this kid looks good. 

The Chicago Cubs have recalled pitcher Jeremiah Estrada from Triple-A Iowa.

Estrada made his major league debut on Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays, throwing a scoreless inning, walking one and striking out two. Estrada's stuff looked really good on Tuesday night and, of course, it's a small sample size, but the numbers in the minors back him up. 
In the minors this year, Estrada has dominated, throwing a sparkling 1.30 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and a ridiculous 78 strikeouts over 48 innings. In 34 games, he has a 3-2 record and has converted nine saves. 
The twenty-three-year-old really looks like he has the stuff to be a major league closer in the future, and with the departure of Scott Efross, David Robertson and Mychal Givens, that job may just be his to win.
