McGehee Claimed Off Waivers

The Cubs made their second 40-man roster move of the off-season earlier this week by releasing Casey McGehee. According to a report from the Associated Press, McGehee was claimed off waivers by the Milwaukee Brewers and Joe Dillon was released in order to make room on the Brewers’ 40-man roster for McGehee.

The Cubs released Carmen Pignatiello earlier this month, once he cleared waivers he was assigned him to Triple-A Iowa.

McGehee was the Cubs’ 10th round pick in the 2003 draft and made his Major League debut in 2008 with the Cubs as a part of the team’s September call-ups. McGehee was 4-for-24 in 9 games.

More changes to the Cubs 40-man roster should happen in the upcoming days.
