Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Cubs optioned struggling infielder Mike Olt to Triple-A Iowa and recalled left-handed pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada from Triple-A on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Olt, who was acquired in the Matt Garza deal from Texas last July, had been on the big league club since Opening Day, but hit just .139 with 12 homers and 30 RBI.

The 33-year-old Wada will start for the Cubs Wednesday night against San Diego.
