Blake DeWitt was once again designated for assignment. The Cubs will now have ten days to release, waive, or trade DeWitt. As you recall the Cubs did the same thing with DeWitt a couple months ago, he cleared waivers then and accepted a minor league assignment, but it is unknown if he will do the same should he clear waivers this time through. Taking his place today is going to be Travis Wood who will get his first major league start with the Cubs. However, what will happen after today is anyones guess as I don’t think the Cubs will carry 13 pitchers. My thinking is it will be Adrian Cardenas who is off to a good start in Iowa, but maybe the organization has something else planned. We will let you know as soon as we find out.
