Strange-Gordon signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Strange-Gordon spent time in the Brewers' organization earlier in the season, but he was let go Saturday. He'll find a new minor-league opportunity several days later after Nico Hoerner suffered a hamstring injury Tuesday. Strange-Gordon didn't appear in the majors early in the year, and he should report to Triple-A Iowa to begin his time with the Cubs.
Strange-Gordon was released Saturday from Triple-A Nashville, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Strange-Gordon never appeared on the Brewers' big-league roster after signing a minor-league deal April 8. Milwaukee adding shortstop Willy Adames on Friday essentially spelled doom for Strange-Gordon's chances of getting called up, and his Triple-A roster spot can now be better filled by a younger, developing player.
Strange-Gordon signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Strange-Gordon was released by the Reds prior to Opening Day and received considerable interest in free agency. While the 32-year-old initially wanted to wait for a major-league deal, he'll settle for a minor-league contract with the Brewers. Even though Strange-Gordon won't be on the major-league roster right away, he could serve as depth in the middle infield at some point after Milwaukee traded Orlando Arcia to Atlanta on Tuesday.
Strange-Gordon was released by the Reds on Friday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Strange-Gordon's chances of making the team diminished once the Reds moved Eugenio Suarez to shortstop. He also got hurt by Alex Blandino's strong spring.
Strange-Gordon will spend some time at shortstop this spring, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Strange-Gordon joined the Reds as a non-roster invitee Sunday, so he isn't even guaranteed a roster spot. He's been mostly a second baseman for the majority of his career, but he has at least made 13 starts at shortstop over the last four seasons. He'll probably be a utility man if he does make the team, but the Reds' other options at short consist of a rather uninspiring group, including the not yet ready Jose Garcia, Rule 5 pick Kyle Holder and fellow utility man Kyle Farmer, so there's certainly a path to Strange-Gordon receiving regular at-bats.
