Dee Strange-Gordon News
The Pittsburgh Pirates agreed to a minor league deal with infielder Dee Strange-Gordon on Wednesday, according to a source. Strange-Gordon will report to Triple-A Indianapolis. The 33-year-old has now been with four National League Central teams this year -- the Cincinnati Reds, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs and now Pirates. And he's yet to appear in a major league uniform this year, which tells you about all you need to know. Strange-Gordon hit .259/.299/.361 with the Triple-A affiliates for Milwaukee and Chicago and added two home runs, 11 RBI and five stolen bases in 37 combined games. He might have a better chance of making it up with the Pirates, but even if he does, he probably won't be anything more than a speculative speed addition in NL-only leagues.
Jeff Passan of ESPN is reporting that infielder Dee Strange-Gordon has opted out of his minor league contract with the Chicago Cubs. Passan says that the speedy infielder is expected to latch on with a new team in the coming days. Strange-Gordon signed a minor league deal with the Cubs on May 29, but didn't see any action for the big league club. Strange-Gordon began the season in the Milwaukee Brewers system and his next team will be his third of the year. Strange-Gordon can remain on the waiver wire in all formats.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic is reporting that the Chicago Cubs have agreed to terms with second baseman Dee Strange-Gordon on a minor league contract. Strange-Gordon was recently released out of his minor league deal with the Milwaukee Brewers and he has quickly found himself a new home. The Cubs have dealt with a flurry of injuries lately and that includes starting second baseman Nico Hoerner (hamstring) suffering a left hamstring strain on Tuesday. Infielder Matt Duffy (back) is also on the injured list for the Cubs. Strange-Gordon won't be on the big league roster initially, but his speed alone would provide more upside than his competition of second baseman Eric Sogard and infielder David Bote with Hoerner sidelined. Strange-Gordon doesn't do much with the bat, but could be valuable for managers seeking speed if he gets promoted. Strange-Gordon can be left on the waiver wire.
