Cubs' Oscar De La Cruz: Reinstated from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De La Cruz completed his 80-game suspension and was reinstated from the restricted list Friday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

De La Cruz will head to Double-A Tennessee, where he was optioned before the start of the season. He has a 5.24 ERA in 16 starts at that level last season. Tony Barnette (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Cubs' Oscar De La Cruz: Dispatched to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs optioned De La Cruz to Double-A Tennessee on Saturday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

De La Cruz will miss Tennessee's first 24 games of 2019 while he serves the remainder of the 80-game ban he was handed last July for violating minor-league baseball's performance-enhancing drugs policy. The right-hander should have a spot waiting for him in the Double-A rotation once the suspension is lifted.

Cubs' Oscar De La Cruz: Handed 80-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De La Cruz has been suspended for 80 games after testing positive for a PED masking agent, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

One of the top prospects in a very weak farm system, De La Cruz tested positive for furosemide, and will miss the rest of 2018 (the Tennessee Smokies have 56 games left on their schedule) and roughly the first month of 2019. The 23-year-old righty is already on the 40-man roster, which may have led the Cubs to assigning him to Double-A a little before he was ready for the level. He has a 5.24 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 73 strikeouts in 77.1 innings this season. It would not be surprising to see him converted to a relief role at some point next season.
