CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs purchased the contract of RHP Chang-Yong Lim from Triple-A Iowa before Wednesday's game against the Miami Marlins.
The 37-year-old Lim had his second Tommy John surgery in 2012 and signed a two-year contract last offseason with the Cubs after spending 17 seasons in Korea and Japan. He pitched at four different levels for the Cubs this season, going 0-0 with a 1.61 ERA in 21 appearances.
At Triple-A Iowa, he had a 0.79 ERA in 11 outings.
RHP Michael Bowden was designated for assignment. Bowden was 1-3 with a 4.30 ERA in 34 appearances, all in relief.
