Blake DeWitt Accepts Minor League Assignment

Carrie Muskat from MLB.com reports that Blake DeWitt accepted a minor league assignment, being outrighted to Triple A after he was designated for assignment last week. DeWitt is in Chicago Cubs camp as a non roster invitee.

DeWitt will make $1.1 million this season, and he was removed from the 40 man roster after the Cubs acquired Adrian Cardenas from the Oakland Athletics earlier in the month. If he plays well this spring, DeWitt could work his way back onto the Major League roster.

DeWitt was acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers at the trading deadline of 2010, where the Cubs sent Ryan Theriot and Ted Lilly to the Dodgers. DeWitt played second, third and outfield for the Cubs during last season, but put p mediocre numbers at the plate, and the Cubs were not to reluctant to DFA him this month. He will most likely start the season with the Iowa Cubs.
