Jeff Baker Acquired From Rockies; Ryan Freel DFA'd

For those of you who have screamed, about various players, "DFA! DFA!", today you got your wish.

Jeff Baker was acquired from Colorado for minor league pitcher Alberto Alburquerque, and he will be activated tonight (and wear #28). Ryan Freel was designated for assignment; that means he is removed from the 40-man roster, and within 10 days the Cubs have to either trade him, send him to the minors if he clears waivers, or release him.
