Cubs claim 24-year old Adrian Cardenas off of waivers from the Oakland A’s. Cardenas was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in
the first round of the 2006 MLB Amateur Draft. Oakland acquired Cardenas in 2008 in the Joe Blanton deal. He has spent his first six first seasons in the minor leagues, including last year where he played second, short, third, and left field at the Triple-A level. The left-handed hitting Cardenas hit .314 with and OBP of .374. He has shown little power thus far in his career, however has been a career .303 hitter with an OBP of .368. In order to make room for Cardenas on the 40-man roster the Cubs designated 26-year old Blake DeWitt for assignment. DeWitt, a former 2004 first round pick by the Dodgers, came to Chicago in the deal that sent Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot to the Dodgers in 2010. In his career DeWitt has a line of .260/.305/.385. The Cubs avoided arbitration with DeWitt this offseason agreeing on a $1.1 MM deal for the 2012 season.
