Mitch Atkins could be the next reliever the Chicago Cubs call up

24-year old righty reliever/starter Mitch Atkins is pitching really well in AAA-ball right now. Atkins has pitched in 13 games (5 starts) in AAA-ball this year and he is 3-2 with 1 save, a 2.79 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. He has only given up 33 hits in 42 innings so far this season as he is pitching very well. He made his major league debut in 2009 with the Cubs working in 2 games in which he worked 2 scoreless innings allowing only 1 hit. Atkins should get a call soon if he keeps pitching well and the Cubs’ bullpen continues to stink with the exceptions of Sean Marshall and Carlos Marmol.
