The Chicago Cubs placed right-handed pitcher Colten Brewer on the 60-day injured list Sunday due to a broken left hand. The injury occurred Saturday, reportedly when he punched the dugout wall in frustration.

Brewer entered the game in relief of starter Kyle Hendricks in the third inning with the Cubs down 2-0 to the Los Angeles Angels. He got just two outs before being lifted and was charged with three runs (one earned) on two hits, two walks and a hit batter.

The Angels went on to win 7-0.

The six-year veteran, in his first season with the Cubs, has made 16 relief appearances. The 31-year-old has no decisions to go with a 5.66 ERA, a save and a blown save, nine walks and 22 strikeouts.

In a corresponding move, the Cubs called up right-hander Hunter Bigge from the Iowa Cubs. In 11 games, Bigge, 26, is 1-0 with a 0.77 ERA and six saves.

The Cubs selected Bigge with a 12th-round pick in 2019 from Harvard. He has yet to make his major league debut.
