The Chicago Cubs have activated 32-year old lefty swinging catcher Miguel Montero off the disabled list. He has played in 13 games for the Cubs so far this year and he is 10 of 48 (.208 avg, .649 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer and 6 RBIs. To make room on the active roster for Montero, the Cubs have designated 28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Ryan Kalish for assignment. Kalish played in 7 games for the Cubs this year and he was 2 for 7 (.286 avg, .730 OPS) with 1 run scored and 2 RBIs. Kalish has now played in 153 games in his first four years in the show and he is 95 of 387 (.245 avg, .645 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 4 homers, 36 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. If he clears waivers and agrees to an outright assignment to AAA, I’m sure the Cubs would like to keep Kalish around.
UPDATE: (5/15/2016) – Ryan Kalish has cleared waivers and he has accepted an outright assignment to AAA.
