With Garza returning Cubs DFA Bowden

Garza for Bowden

Many thought that Shawn Camp would be DFA’d when Garza returned, but it’s Michael Bowden who has been sent packing.  I suppose this makes sense as Dale Sveum loves Camp despite Camp’s horrible 2013 campaign and recently gave him a vote of confidence signaling that the Cubs were going to be patient with him.  Based on performance, the guy who should be going is Camp because Bowden has at least shown the ability to get guys out, while Camp hasn’t.  Now if Camp can regain his 2012 form then the Cubs pen becomes something to reckon with, but if he continues to flounder things could get messy, even more than now.  I’ll keep you posted on what happens to Bowden, wouldn’t be surprised to see him end up elsewhere.
