#Cubs roster move: Germen called up; Szczur to Iowa

The Cubs selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Gonzalez Germen from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday and optioned outfielder Matt Szczur to Triple-A. To make room for Germen on the 40-man roster, right-handed pitcher Jacob Turner was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. Germen was available for the Cubs in Sunday’s series finale against the Padres.

Germen, 27, has thrown four scoreless appearances for Iowa, striking out five over 4 2/3 innings.

Szczur had batted .200 (2-for-10) with one double and one RBI in eight games with the Cubs.

Turner is recovering from right shoulder inflammation.
