The Chicago Cubs sign Scott Hairston

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by joelapinski on Wednesday 30 January 2013 at 9:05 am

The Cubs have signed 32-year old righty swinging outfielder Scott Hairston to a 2-year deal.  Hairston played in 134 games for the Mets last year and he was 99 of 377 (.263 avg, .803 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 20 homers, 57 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  He has now played in 777 games in his first 9 years in the majors and he is 543 of 2,197 (.247 avg, .751 OPS) with 276 runs scored, 95 homers, 279 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  Hairston will likely share RF with lefty swinging Nate Schierholtz, unless the Cubs deal Alfonso Soriano before the season starts, in which case Hairston would be the starting LF.  This was a good signing for the Cubs as Hairston has a pretty decent bat.

The Chicago Cubs DFA Lendy Castillo

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by joelapinski on Wednesday 30 January 2013 at 8:09 am

The Cubs have designated 23-year old righty reliever Lendy Castillo for assignment.  Castillo pitched in 13 games (0 starts) in his first taste of the majors for the Cubs last year and was 0-1 with a 7.88 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP.  He also pitched in 7 games (all starts) in Rookie+A+AA-ball last year for the Cubs in which he was 0-0 with a 0.90 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP.  The Cubs hope that Castillo clears waivers as they likely want to keep him around.

UPDATE:  (2/6/2013) - Lendy Castillo has cleared waivers and he has been outrighted to AAA-ball by the Cubs.
