Brian Matusz makes Cubs debut vs. Mariners, Felix Hernandez

Brian Matusz is making his first start in more than four years. The Cubs called up the left-hander from Triple-A Iowa for a spot start Sunday against the Mariners and Felix Hernandez.

Matusz allowed five runs (four earned), seven hits and three walks in four innings for the Orioles on July 1, 2012 against the Indians. He has pitched out of the bullpen since. He last appeared in a major-league game May 17, when he allowed four runs and five hits in 1 2/3 innings against the Mariners.

Adding a sixth man to the rotation allows the Cubs’ starting five an extra day of rest, the second time that’s happened this season. Adam Warren also made a spot start for the Cubs earlier this season.

Javier Baez was not in the starting lineup for the Cubs. Maddon opted to start Chris Coghlan’s left-handed bat against the hard-to-hit right-hander Hernandez.

At the plate

Anthony Rizzo (21) and Addison Russell (20) are the second Cubs tandem in the last 12 years to record 20 RBIs each in July. Aramis Ramirez (25) and Geovany Soto (20) did so in July 2010.

On the mound

Hernandez is 10-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 85 strikeouts in his last 11 road interleague starts. He hasn’t lost a road interleague game since June 15, 2007.

In the field

The Cubs’ .995 fielding percentage in the 15 games since the All-Star break is majors.

Key number

7. Number of starting pitchers the Cubs will have used this season after Matusz starts Sunday. Adam Warren also made a spot start this season.

The quote

“Not that it would have mattered, but I didn’t know that.” – Cubs manager Joe Maddon on closer Aroldis Chapman saying he doesn’t like four-out saves.
