NEW YORK -- The Chicago Cubs recalled left-handed pitcher Zac Rosscup for the second game of their day/night doubleheader against the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.

Rosscup, 25, was a September call-up last season, posting a 1.35 ERA in 10 relief appearances. He was acquired in January of 2011 as part of an eight-player trade with the Tampa Bay Rays in which the Cubs also received pitcher Matt Garza.

As per MLB rules, teams can add a 26th man specifically for day/night doubleheaders.
