I can’t write at length about this right now thanks to the travels and sickness, but according to multiple reports, the Cubs have claimed lefty Mike Kickham off of waivers from the Giants. If true, the Cubs will have to clear another spot off of the 40-man roster.
I’ll have more when I’m able.
UPDATE: Looks like the Cubs tried to get Shane Peterson through waivers and he was claimed by the Brewers. So there you go. Short tenure with the Cubs. I’ll remember it fondly.
UPDATE 2: And Ryan Lavarnway was claimed by the Orioles. Couldn’t get him through waivers. Bummer.
UPDATE 3: The Cubs have now officially announced these moves.
