Description: Cubs minor league left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is pitching great at Iowa and might get a shot to start for the Cubs before the end of the season.
Insight: Wada came over from Japan in 2012 and signed with the Orioles, but needed Tommy John surgery and hasn't pitch in the majors. He's 4-1 with a 1.22 ERA, 0.835 WHIP and a 46/9 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Description: Cubs minor league left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada leads the hard-hitting Pacific Coast League with a 1.21 ERA in 37 1/3 innings this season. He also has a 38/6 K/BB.
Insight: Wada came over from Japan in 2012 and signed with the Orioles but needed Tommy John surgery and didn't pitch in the majors. He threw 102 2/3 innings with Triple-A Norfolk last year and had a 4.03 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP before signing with the Cubs prior to this season. He could get a shot with the Cubs if Jake Arrieta falters in the fifth-starter role.

Description: Tsuyoshi Wada's MLB career will begin on the disabled list. Wada has been slowed by an elbow injury.
Insight: We haven't seen much of Wada in spring training (just five innings pitched) and now it looks like we'll see even less of him. Wada was an All-Star in Japan the past two seasons but how his game will translate to the major leagues is still a bit of a mystery.
