It’s becoming more clear Jeff Samardzija is on the Cubs roster because he’s out of minor league options.
I figure that doesn’t come as a surprise to most Cubs fans who have watched Samardzija pitch for any length of time, including his 2.0 IP and 9.00 ERA in 2011.
I have my doubts Jeff will last through May, let alone April, on the Cubs roster. His inability to improve has me leaning towards trading the young right-hander. Maybe it’s not too late to get something good in return?
