Cubs' Munenori Kawasaki: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kawasaki was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday.

The 35-year-old infielder has seen just 38 big league plate appearances since the start of the 2015 season, and sticks around primarily because of his defensive versatility and his excellent presence in the clubhouse. He will return to serving as organizational depth at Iowa.

Cubs' Munenori Kawasaki: Recalled by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kawasaki was recalled by the Cubs on Saturday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The Cubs sent Jeimer Candelario back down to Triple-A in a corresponding move Saturday. Kawasaki, who hasn't been up with the Cubs since the first week of the season, will add versatility and a left-handed bat to the Chicago bench.

Cubs' Munenori Kawasaki: Hitless in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munenori Kawasaki scored a run while going 0-for-3 in Sunday's loss to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

After a brief two game appearance with the Chicago Cubs after Kyle Schwarber suffered his season ending injury, Kawasaki has returned to Triple-A Iowa, where he's had a positive impact on the team. Kawasaki has played in 12 games and has an OBP of .364, courtesy of his ability to draw walks. If the Cubs need additional infield depth, Kawasaki could be a viable option, especially if he continues to regularly get on base.

Cubs' Munenori Kawasaki: Could be called up when Schwarber goes on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munenori Kawasaki is likely to be called up when Kyle Schwarber is placed on the DL, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

The Chicago Cubs may opt to play Kris Bryant a bit in left field, meaning Kawasaki could see extensive playing time at the hot corner. It's far more likely that Jorge Soler and Matt Szczur will share left field, Bryant stays at third, and Kawasaki just backs up various infielders.

Cubs' Munenori Kawasaki: Lands on 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chicago Cubs added Munenori Kawasaki to the 40-man roster Sunday and optioned the infielder to Triple-A Iowa, Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports.

During four seasons between the Mariners' and Blue Jays' organizations, Kawasaki has logged the majority of his time at second base and shortstop, but third base has been his domain on occasion. With Javier Baez (thumb) landing on the DL to open the season, Kawasaki will serve as insurance in case another injury occurs to the Cubs' infield. If he does make an appearance with the big club, Kawasaki will be looking to parlay a spring slash line of .375/.455/.563 in 48 at-bats into regular season success, though he's known far more for his deftness with the glove.
