MLB News: The Chicago Cubs designated utility player Brent Lillibridge for assignment Tuesday. Batting just 1-for-24 on the season with 9 strikeouts, he played himself off of the roster in sorts. The Cubs needed a roster spot after claiming Cody Ransom and activating Darwin Barney.
Fantasy Ramifications: While Lillibridge does have a decent combination of speed and power, he is very sporadic at the plate and even if claimed by a major league team, he will not have a regular role in any offense. He shouldn’t be owned in any fantasy formats.
