Cubs 2022 Rule 5 Draft & Minor League Free-Agency Watch List


The Cubs have selected the contract of OF Narciso Crook. 



The Cubs have released LHP Conner Menez and LHP Ben Holmes. Also, LHP Sean Newcomb was sent outright to AAA Iowa on Monday 6/20, and as an Article XX-D player, he had the right to elect free-agency or defer the right to be a free-agent until after the conclusion of the MLB regular season (if he is not added back to the 40 in the meantime). He had 48 hours to decide, and he has accepted the outright assignment and deferred free-agency.
