The Chicago Cubs called up veteran reliever Manuel Corpas yesterday, reports Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. To make room on their roster for Corpas, the Cubs placed right-hander Blake Parker on their 60-day disabled list.

Corpas made his debut for the Cubs during last night’s 8-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, striking out two in an inning of work. It was Corpas’ first action at the major league level since pitching for the Colorado Rockies in 2010.

Prior to being called up, Corpas appeared in 19 games for the Cubs Triple-A affiliate. Over his 33 2/3 innings pitched, Corpas maintained an ERA and WHIP of 4.01 and 1.158. The 29-year-old has a career ERA and WHIP of 3.92 and 1.331 over his six seasons in the bigs.

The Cubs placed Parker on their 60-day DL as a recent MRI confirmed he will not be able to pick up a baseball for 30 days. Parker is dealing with a stress reaction in his right elbow.
