Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IAugust 15, 2010

Chicago has called upon 15 rookies in 2010, the most since 2006 when the club used 16, and the most this early in a season since 1974 when 18 new jacks appeared in the first 115 games.

The Cubs are just one of only two teams this year to play 15 or more rookies, Detroit being the other, having utilized 15 rookies as well.

Chicago’s franchise mark for rookies played dates way back to 1902 when 27 rookies suited up for game action.

Including rookie Darwin Barney, who joined the club Tuesday, Chicago currently has 11 newbies on its 25-man roster.
