Cubs' Chatwood waits his turn, gets start against Pirates

Tyler Chatwood took the high road when he was demoted from the Chicago Cubs' rotation in late July. The right-hander figured going to the bullpen would give him a chance to work on his control and be ready should he get a chance to start again.

That chance comes Saturday when Chatwood (4-5, 5.06 ERA) will start against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. That was announced Friday when the Cubs placed Mike Montgomery on the disabled list because of left shoulder inflammation. Left-handed reliever Randy Rosario was promoted from Triple-A Iowa.

Montgomery had been scheduled to start Saturday, but he felt discomfort during a bullpen session Thursday.
