The Cubs officially released Luis Vizcaino on Monday according to a report from the Chicago Tribune. The Cubs designated Vizcaino for assignment on April 23.
Vizcaino is owed $3.5 million for this season that includes a $500,000 buyout for 2010.
Vizcaino reportedly got off on the wrong foot with the Cubs after reporting to Spring Training out of shape. Visa problems delayed his arrival and showing up not ready to compete did not help his situation.
