Beeler gets the start tonight against the Rockies. Here’s hoping he keeps the ball down.
Chicago Cubs Transactions
A big signing back in the 2012 offseason, Jackson never quite worked out with the Cubs. I learned some lessons.
It’s good news to be able to keep Richard in the organization for depth. He might actually be needed very soon.
And the rotation implications abound.
The 35-year-old reliever worked his way up through the Cubs’ system as he got his arm ready to go. Hopefully he’s a meaningful contributor.
The Cubs will have 10 days to trade, waive, or release Jackson.
The 25-year-old sinkerballer may have a better shot with the Reds. The Cubs must feel pretty good about their emergency depth.
The Cubs will have 10 days to trade, waive or release Roach.
Germen has been in five organizations in the past eight months.
All the intriguing bullpen depth.
Mike Baxter gets to stick around, and starts at first base today.
La Stella had already been out more than 60 days with an oblique injury.
Richard’s best work came a few years ago in San Diego.
The Cubs do make a minor IFA-related trade after all.
Underwood to the DL, Null to High-A, and a new undrafted free agent signing.
Ramirez gives the Cubs another late-inning option (in theory), and Wada has shoulder inflammation.
Roach spot starts tonight in St. Louis, and Medina heads back down after a brief stay.
The North Florida outfielder was one of the best college bats in the draft, and I suspect the Cubs were very happy he slipped to them in the second round.
The outfielder is back again after an up-and-down year.
The move is more like a promotion than a demotion, and Schwarber’s stay in the bigs was enjoyable and instructive.
