JEFF SAMARDZIJA

The Chicago Cubs are expected to recall pitcher Jeff Samardzija from Iowa Friday. He would replace Kerry Wood who was placed on the DL by Chicago Thursday.

Samardzija is a former All-American wide receiver at Notre Dame. He was an NFL prospect before signing with the Cubs.

After a slow start in class A, Samardzija is 4-1 with a 3.13 ERA in six games at triple A Iowa. He has 40 strikeouts in 37 innings.
