Cubs Release Cintrón

According to Bruce Levine this morning, the Cubs have decided to part ways with Cintrón. 

I speculate that this means that:

1. His injury was a lot worse than originally reported/anticipated, or

2. the Cubs have elected to pass on Roberts and keep Cedeño, or

3. the Cubs saw enough of Fontenot during spring training that he could fulfill the utility IF role for the Cubs should talks with Roberts heat back up (and as an NRI, Cintrón would be granted his unconditional release), or

4. Hendry feels that an external acquisition/trade is necessary, these are a "dime a dozen", or

5. All of the Above.

Discuss.
