Dae-eun, 25, has been in the Cubs’ minor league system since 2008. He got his first taste of Triple-A competition when he was promoted in July last season after posting a 3.27 ERA with a 97/56 K/BB ratio in 104 2/3 innings. With the Iowa Cubs, he finished with a 3.75 ERA and a 36/16 K/BB ratio in 48 innings.
