Cubs' Andrew Romine: Designated for assignment

Romine was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Monday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Romine saw minimal time in the starting lineup during his time on the active roster, and he'll now be cast off the 40-man roster after David Bote (ankle) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday. The 35-year-old appeared in 26 games with the major-league club and hit .183 with a homer, seven runs and five RBI.

Cubs Roster Moves: David Bote Returns, Andrew Romine DFA’d

David Bote’s ankle issue – the one caused by him slipping on a disguised baseball during batting practice – wound up being not bad at all. Bote will rotate into the mix at second base and maybe a little third base the rest of the way, trying to finish strong on a year that not only featured multiple injuries, but once again saw him do that weird thing he does (hit the ball as hard as anyone and not get results). It’s unlikely the Cubs will let Bote go after the season – he is owed $12 million over the next three years – but it would be nice to have more confidence that, at a minimum, he can still be a solid bench guy.

Twitter couldn’t believe Andrew Romine dropped that

Former White Sox announcer Ken “Hawk” Harrelson would have called this a “can of corn.”. That’s about as bad a play as you’ll see in the big leagues. What you just witnessed was Cubs shortstop Andrew Romine dropping a freebie popup off the bat of Luis Robert, extending the inning and allowing the White Sox, who had previously trailed 6-0, to grab a 7-6 lead. Though plenty went wrong for the Cubs Friday night—you won’t win many games allowing 17 runs (13 of them earned)—Romine’s nightmare performance (two errors, a strikeout and a caught stealing) was no doubt a contributing factor in their loss to the White Sox, who were led by a herculean eight-RBI performance from All-Star catcher Yasmani Grandal (in his return from the injured list, no less).
