Sogard was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Friday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The veteran infielder has a .249/.283/.314 slash line through 180 plate appearances this season, so it's not a major surprise to see Chicago jettison him from the 40-man roster with Matt Duffy (back) returning from the injured list. Sogard posted an .810 OPS in 110 games in 2019, but he's unlikely to garner much interest on the waiver wire with a paltry .582 OPS in 121 contests over the past two years.
