Has anyone heard anything about Rocky Cherry, the AAA closer that the Cubs are calling up?

I didn't hear they had called him up, but I'm very excited to see it happen. Pinella loved what he did in spring training, and I think the only reason they broke camp with Guzman over him is because they needed a long reliever. I haven't been able to see him pitch yet, but I've heard good things about him.

Actually, I might have been a little hasty. It hasn't officially happened but the Tribune reported he is a CANDIDATE to be called up.

Gotcha.
There's rumors that Guzman might come up as the 5th starter and Wade Miller could lose his job due to how bad he's been. I don't know what the plan is to keep all the pitchers on the roster is though. Since they called up Pie, they had to send Guzman down, so in order to call up Guzman they are going to have to drop someone down. I assume the most likely candidates would be Ohman, Pie (if they play Jacque in center), and Cedeno (because Theriot can play all the infield positions, but they like Cedeno's defense).
And if they bring Rocky Cherry up, that would mean they would have to send 2 people down (if they give Guzman the 5th spot, can they really bring themselves to designate Wade Miller with the low contract he has, or does he end up as a long reliever?)
