The Chicago Cubs have released 35-year old righty swinging outfielder Shane Victorino. Victorino played in 9 games in AAA-ball for the Cubs this year and he was 7 for 30 (.233 avg, .690 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers, 5 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Victorino has played in 1,299 games in his first 12 years in the show and he is 1,274 of 4,630 (.275 avg, .765 OPS) with 731 runs scored, 108 homers, 489 RBIs and 231 stolen bases. He has won 4 Gold Glove Awards and he has been an All-Star twice in his career. So even if this is the end of Victorino’s baseball career…..he had a very, very solid one.
