The Eric Sogard DFA Has Been Resolved: He’s Been Released

Amid many other considerably more important roster considerations, I won’t put much wait on the finalization of Eric Sogard’s designation for assignment. He was already off the roster either way, and it was really just a question of whether some club would seek to add him for salary relief before he cleared waivers, or whether he would hit free agency.

Cubs Activate Matt Duffy, DFA Eric Sogard

The Cubs have activated Matt Duffy after two months on the IL due to back issues and he’s in the lineup batting fifth and playing third on Friday afternoon. Duffy hit .278 with a .733 OPS in 106 plate appearances prior to the injury, but his greatest asset was a contact approach that saw him strike out at just a 17% clip. As a team, the Cubs are currently fourth-worst in MLB with a 26.3% strikeout rate.

Cubs' Eric Sogard: DFA'd by Cubs

Sogard was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Friday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The veteran infielder has a .249/.283/.314 slash line through 180 plate appearances this season, so it's not a major surprise to see Chicago jettison him from the 40-man roster with Matt Duffy (back) returning from the injured list. Sogard posted an .810 OPS in 110 games in 2019, but he's unlikely to garner much interest on the waiver wire with a paltry .582 OPS in 121 contests over the past two years.

(670 The Score) Cubs infielder Eric Sogard made history Monday night. The problem? It was just a sad reflection of the state of the club, which has now lost 10 straight games. Sogard pitched the ninth inning of the Cubs’ 13-3 loss to the Phillies, which marked his fifth pitching appearance of the season.
