Bristol, VA native and Cubs pitcher Justin Grimm optioned to Triple-A Iowa

CHICAGO — The news is not good for Bristol native Justin Grimm of the Chicago Cubs who was optioned to triple-a Iowa Tuesday night. With Justin Wilson arriving in Chicago from the Tigers, there simply was no room for Grimm and his 5.18 era.

The 27-year-old former Virginia High Bearcat will head back to the minors for more work, but Grimm will likely be back in the big leagues by September to offer bullpen help when the rosters expand.

It was the fourth time this season that Grimm, has been optioned to the minors.
