Blake Parker Optioned to AAA Iowa, Chris Rusin Officially Added

Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Rumors, Chicago Cubs Transactions

The rumors about Emilio Bonifacio will continue to swirl, possibly throughout the game (#HugWatch), but there’s nothing doing right at this moment. Even if the Cubs are determined to trade him – and there’s so much interest and chatter that it feels inevitable at this point – they have until 3pm CT tomorrow. No rush.
