The Cubs released LHP Nate Robertson because he was basically horrible this year, going 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in 14 games in Iowa.
The subsequent move was signing Shane Lindsay and assigning him to AAA Iowa. Lindsay might be familiar to Chicagoland baseball fans as he pitched last year in the White Sox organization. He was named to the International League All-Star team with the AAA Charlotte Knights. Lindsay was 2-2 with a 1.98 ERA and four saves in 45 games at Charlotte. He also got some time in the bigs last September when the White Sox called him up, though it was limited (4 appearances). He was released by the Dodgers earlier this month.
