Chicago Cubs Transactions
Today’s doubleheader allows the Cubs a 26th man for the second game, and Rosscup is the guy.
Thanks for the outing, Rusin, and welcome back Parker.
With a taxed bullpen and a possible short starter today, the Cubs needed a little reinforcement.
The 35-year-old righty pitched well in Puerto Rico this offseason.
All are expected moves, but McDonald goes on the 60-day DL, while Fujikawa does not.
The infield picture clears up a bit. Does this mean Mike Olt makes the team?
McDonald sent out, Lim released, and Wada re-signed to a minor league deal.
The 33-year-old lefty wasn’t going to make the big league team.
Ramirez looked good in very limited duty this Spring, but the Cubs will likely give him a chance to keep starting in the minors.
Baez heading down is news, but not a surprise. Parker, on the other hand, is something of a surprise.
First reported by none other than Cubs prospect Dan Vogelbach.
The 32-year-old lefty was beat out by the other lefties in camp.
Some guys who actually had a shot at a job on the big team went out today, though none was a surprise.
