Victorino has put plans to sign a minor league contract on hold after he had surgery to remove a cyst under his arm, the Boston Globe reports. Victorino was released by the Cubs last May, but he had a minor league contract on the table. He never signed, and it looks even less likely now that he'll find any contract in the near future. We may have seen the last of Victorino in the big leagues.
Victorino has been released by the Cubs, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. He played in nine games at Triple-A Iowa this season, hitting .233/.324/.367 with five RBI and a stolen base. It's unclear if Victorino will seek to latch on with another club, or if he may elect to call it a career at age-35.
Victorino has been assigned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Victorino has been dealing with a calf injury to start the season but now appears to be healthy enough to take the field again. The 35-year-old will look to resurrect his career in the Cubs' system after only playing in 101 games through the past two seasons.
Victorino (calf) re-signed with the Cubs on Tuesday on a minor league deal, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports. Victorino had been released earlier in the day, but he was able to work out a new agreement to stay with the club. The 35-year-old is dealing with a calf injury that will sideline him for the beginning of the season, but he figures to head to Triple-A Iowa once he returns to full healthy.
Victorino (calf) was released by the Cubs on Tuesday, but the team does hope to re-sign him, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports. The Cubs want Victorino to continue rehabbing at extended spring training once the season begins. He may be looking at opportunities with other organizations, but regardless of where he ends up, Victorino won't be ready for games within the first few weeks of the season. Should he stay with the Cubs, he'll likely end up at Triple-A Iowa once/if he gets healthy.
