Cubs - Acquired Freel
Chicago Cubs - Acquired UT Ryan Freel from the Baltimore Orioles for P Joey Gathright; recalled P Randy Wells.
Ryan Freel was apparently unhappy in Baltimore, due to the club’s apparent unwillingness to play players that aren’t healthy enough to play on the field. Freel should be happy to sit on the DL or the bench; given his play since 2006, playing baseball is extremely unlikely to bolster his reputation as a player of baseball. The Orioles pick up Joey Gathright, whose star has fallen to the point that he’s no longer putting up good 50 at-bat stretches that fool bad teams into thinking he’s a full-time player.
Randy Wells is Zambrano’s replacement for the time being. I was amazed, when looking up his birthday, to find out that he’s only pitched in 4 games in the majors. Wells had a nice April in that coastal state of Iowa, but he’s spent an entire career hanging onto the fringes of 40-man rosters for good reason, so we’re probably not looking at Rick Reed.
