The Chicago Cubs let Mark Prior walk

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page by chinmusic on Thursday 20 December 2007 at 12:59 pm

The Cubs finally had enough of waiting around for Mark Prior so they did not tender him a contract for the 2008 season making him an unrestricted free agent. Prior missed all of the 2007 season which hurt the Cubs because they were expected him to help out at some point in 2007. Prior pitched in 106 games in his major league career and he is 42-29 with a 3.51 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He also has whiffed 757 batters in 657 innings which shows what kind of stuff that he has. Still, Prior is only 27 years old so some team will take a chance on him.

The Chicago Cubs sign outfielder Kosuke Fukudome

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page by chinmusic on Wednesday 12 December 2007 at 12:21 pm

The Cubs have signed outfielder Kosuke Fukudome to a 4-year, $50 million dollar contract. The 30 year old lefty swinger battled a sore elbow which caused him to miss a lot of last season in Japan but the Cubs don’t feel that will be an issue in 2008. Fukudome played in 81 games last year and he was 79 for 269 (.294 avg, .793 OPS) with 64 runs scored, 13 homers and 48 RBIs. In his Japanese baseball career, Fukudome played in 1,074 games and he was 1,175 for 3,852 (.305 avg, .940 OPS) with 713 runs scored, 192 homers, 647 RBIs and 71 stolen bases. Hopefully the Cubs aren’t basing the huge contract they gave Fukudome on his power numbers because they often don’t translate well to America.

The Chicago Cubs acquire Jose Ascanio from the Braves

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page by chinmusic on Tuesday 4 December 2007 at 1:33 pm

The Cubs have acquired 22 year old righty reliever Jose Ascanio from the Braves for Omar Infante and Will Ohman. Ascanio pitched in 13 games with the Braves last season and he was 1-1 with a 5.06 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. He was much better in AA ball last season as he pitched in 44 games (1 start) and he was 2-2 with 10 saves, a 2.54 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. Infante and Ohman were just spare pieces that the Cubs had no use for so they had no problem trading them for a pitcher with Ascanio’s upside.
