Jeff Gray to Cubs, Esmailin Caridad to DL

Chicago Cubs News

It should be no surprise that Jeff Gray – acquired in the offseason,
together with a couple meh prospects, for Jake Fox and Aaron Miles –
is now on his way to join the Chicago Cubs’ bullpen, following
Esmailin Caridad’s placement on the disabled list with a
totally-not-made-up forearm strain. Gray was expected to be a part of
the bullpen when the Cubs broke Spring camp, but following a groin
injury that slowed his readiness, Gray needed some time in Iowa to get
ready for the season.

After a few dominating performances, he’s apparently ready. Gray is a
big-time control guy, something the Cubs sorely lack from the right
side, so hopefully his addition will be both positive and permanent.
