The Cubs have designated 25-year old righty reliever Casey Coleman for assignment. Coleman pitched in 17 games (1 start) for the Cubs last year and he was 0-2 with a 7.40 ERA and a 2.01 WHIP. Coleman pitched in 48 games (26 starts) in his three years with the Cubs and he is 7-13 with a 5.76 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP. This isn’t much of a loss for the Cubs.
UPDATE: (12/1/2012) – Casey Coleman has cleared waivers and he has accepted an outright assignment to AAA to stay with the Cubs in 2013.
