Blake DeWitt Clears Waivers

Blake DeWitt

Blake DeWitt

It was eleven days ago when Blake DeWitt was designated for assignment.  Today the 26-year old utility player cleared waivers and the Cubs have sent him to Triple-A Iowa.  I am guessing DeWitt will be a non-roster invitee to Spring Training with a chance to win a reserve role, much like the one he had last year.  If he makes the team he will earn $1.1 million for the upcoming season.  If he does not make the team the Cubs will have to decide if they want him to play in Iowa in case of injury in Chicago, or they could release him.  Obviously the Cubs also could look to trade him between now and the start of the season as well.

Coming soon:  Pitchers and Catchers Report……. And hopefully

we have the Epstein compensation issue resolved soon.

Thanks for reading,
