From the Media Department comes the news that we didn’t just have to release Ryan Freel. I’m still waiting on the roster moves for tonight’s game.
CHICAGO – 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.
The Cubs originally acquired Freel from Baltimore for outfielder Joey Gathright on May 8.
