Chicago Cubs Part With Eight Minor Leaguers

Based on their time in the minors, several Chicago Cubs’ players – some career minor leaguers, some who have been up and down – were eligible for free agency this week, and eight of them have elected to file for free agency: Mitch Atkins (who saw action with the Cubs this year), Russ Canzler, Jason Dubois, Jeff Gray (part of the Jake Fox/Aaron Miles trade), Bryan LaHair, Scott “DieHard” McClain, Mario Mercedes, and Mark Reed. In theory they could re-sign with the Cubs, but most will be moving on.
