Brooks Raley will make his final start of the season for the Chicago Cubs on Thursday afternoon against the Milwaukee Brewers.

"Today will be it for Raley," manager Dale Sveum said. "(We put an) innings (limit) on him going into the season. They’ll be up after today. Unfortunately we’ll have to shut him down after today."

Counting his time in the minors, Raley has tossed 151 innings on the year coming into Thursday’s contest. According to Sveum, rookie Chris Rusin will take Raley’s spot in the rotation the rest of the season.

Raley is 1-2 with a 6.64 ERA in four starts (20 1/3 innings) with the Cubs.
