We Can’t say ‘Bye Bye’ to Blake DeWitt…Yet!
According to Cubs.com, the Cubs outrighted utilty man Blake DeWitt to Triple A Iowa after he cleared waivers. The Cubs designated Blake DeWitt for assignment on February 6th to make room for Adrian Cardenas whom the Cubs claimed from the Oakland Athletics.
Blake DeWitt will be Mesa to try and compete for a spot that was once his. To be honest, I don’t see him making the team still. The Cubs are probably mad no team claimed him and they still have control of him. If the Cubs see no improvement, there’s a good chance that he’ll be released. There are people wanting DeWitt to go to the Red Sox as compensation for Theo Epstein, but if the Red Sox wanted DeWitt, wouldn’t they have claimed him? I mean there’s a chance, but I think it’ll be a mid tier prospect. A name that I think could go over is Jay Jackson, but at this point, I don’t know anymore.
So … we’ll see DeWitt more, but I don’t know if it’ll be for long time or just a short time. He would be a good injury replacemnt on the 25-man roster, though.
