Cubs recall Parker, plan to call up six others

CHICAGO -- The Cubs recalled right-handed pitcher Blake Parker from Triple-A Iowa, and will add about six more players once the Minor League team's regular season ends on Monday.

Iowa did not make the playoffs, and plays its final regular-season game on Monday against Oklahoma City.

Parker has been called up every month except June this season. In 10 games, he has given up nine earned runs on 14 hits and four walks over 13 1/3 innings.

Manager Rick Renteria would not say who specifically will be added on Tuesday.
