The Chicago Cubs have designated 25-year old righty reliever Brian Schlitter for assignment. Schlitter missed all of the 2011 season due to an elbow injury. Schlitter pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Cubs in 2010 and he was 0-1 with a 12.38 ERA and a 2.88 WHIP. He gave up 18 hits (2 homers) and walked 7 batters in his 8 innings in the show. The Cubs aren’t going to miss Schlitter at all going forward.
UPDATE: (10/5/2011) – The Cubs have outrighted Brian Schlitter to AAA.
