Cubs Trade Ryan Freel To Royals For PTBNL

New, 218 comments

The Cubs are making all kinds of news today. Well, this return on Freel is better than an outright release, I guess. From the press release:

The Chicago Cubs today traded infielder Ryan Freel to the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named.

Freel was designated for assignment by the Cubs on July 2. In 14 games with Chicago, Freel batted .143 (4-for-28) with one run scored and one RBI.

Yeah, I know. Not much. But then, neither was his Cubs career. That one run scored was a mad dash home in the eighth inning on June 27 vs. the White Sox after a groundout to first. Bye-bye, Ryan. We hardly knew 'ye.
