With the signing of Scott Feldman yesterday the Cubs needed to clear a roster spot on the 40-man roster for him, they did that today by designating Casey Coleman for assignment per Carrie Muskat. The Cubs long-held out hope that Casey Coleman would fulfill the potential that they saw in him but that has not happened at all, especially at the big league level. Expect Coleman to be placed on waivers, unless the Cubs can move him in a deal within the next 7-10 days.
“Coleman appeared in 17 games for the Cubs this past season, posting a 7.40 ERA with 5.9 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 in 24 1/3 innings. Coleman, a third generation big leaguer, has a 5.76 ERA with 6.4 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9 in 165 2/3 innings at the MLB level. The 25-year-old has spent his entire three-year career with the Cubs.”
