After being removed from Tuesday's game against the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs reliever Koji Uehara has been placed on the 10-day disabled list.

In his place, the Cubs have recalled right-handed reliever Justin Grimm from Triple-A Iowa.

The 42-year-old Uehara is now in the midst of his first season in the "Windy City" as a member of the defending World Series champion Cubs.

Uehara, who is playing for his fourth team since moving to the majors in 2009, is 3-4 with two saves and a 3.55 ERA in 43 games this season. Over the course of an even 38 innings of work, he has produced a 3.55 ERA alongside a almost even 3-4 record, two saves, 13 holds and three blown saves. Grimm has a 5.18 ERA in 36 appearances for the Cubs in 2017.

For his big league career as a whole, Uehara now owns a respectable 2.61 ERA in addition to 95 saves, 80 holds, 18 blown saves, 567 strikeouts and 77 walks.
