CHICAGO

– Chicago Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry today issued the following statement upon learning of the passing of right-handed pitcher Geremi Gonzalez.

“The Chicago Cubs are very saddened today to learn of Geremi Gonzalez’s sudden passing.  Geremi began his career as a Cub, leading our pitching staff with 11 wins as a rookie in 1997 and, despite an arm injury, helping the club early in the season a year later to an eventual post-season appearance.  The organization sends its heartfelt condolences to his family.”
