Cubs Lose Jack Reinheimer on Waivers to Rangers

Chicago Cubs

John Jacob Jack Reinheimer Schmidt, that’s my name, too.

The process of clearing the 40-man roster has begun for the Cubs today, with utility infielder Jack Reinheimer – claimed off of waivers by the Cubs just a couple weeks ago – now being claimed by the Rangers:

We discussed Reinheimer here, but you don’t need to read that now, because he’s gone. Or maybe he will come back in one of those waiver-wire games of pong.

Reinheimer was among the guys we thought could get bounced today, and the 40-man roster now stands at 38, with other moves/roster additions on the way today. Lots of teams are doing what the Cubs are doing today, so there will continue to be a flurry of fringe roster changes (and maybe even trades).

Bonus factoid: in conjunction with the Reinheimer waiver claim, the Rangers waived former Cub Eddie Butler, who cleared waivers, and was outrighted to AAA.
