Cubs Recall One, Option Another
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have recalled right-handed reliever Michael Bowden and optioned lefty Brooks Raley to Triple-A Iowa.

The team moved third baseman Ian Stewart to the 60-day disabled list Monday to make room on the 40-man roster.

Bowden allowed eight runs in nine innings of work in his first stint with Chicago in May. The 25-year-old was acquired from the Boston Red Sox in April for Marlon Byrd.

Raley went 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in two starts for the Cubs. He retired the first 13 Reds he faced on Sunday before allowing home runs in the fifth and sixth innings in the 3-0 loss.

Bowden will be available for the series opener against the Houston Astros on Monday at Wrigley Field.
