From the Wire … Ian Stewart Clears Waivers, Outrighted to Triple-A Iowa

According to multiple reports, the Cubs outrighted Ian Stewart to Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday. Stewart cleared waivers and was removed from the Cubs 40-man roster. Stewart has been outrighted to Triple-A Iowa and will have to remain with the I-Cubs in order to receive the $2 million contract he signed with the Cubs in the off-season.

Ian Stewart reported to Triple-A after he was optioned down to the minors but has yet to play in a game. The Cubs are on the hook for his entire salary, if he stays with the organization.

The move opens a spot on the 40-man roster, which currently stands at 39 players.
