The Chicago Cubs have released 26-year old lefty reliever C.J. Riefenhauser. He pitched in 29 games in Rookie+AAA-ball this year in which he was 2-1 with 1 save, a 4.71 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Riefenhauser gave up 18 hits and 19 walks while whiffing 26 batters in his 28 2/3 innings in the minors this year for the Cubs, so he was really, really wild. He has pitched in 24 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 1-0 with a 6.30 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP. This is no loss for the Cubs moving forward.
