Cody Ransom

In the Daily Herald it says the Cubs have come to an agreement with utility IF Cody Ransom to a minor league deal. He previously played for the SF Giants and appeared in 16 games in 01 and 02 with Dusty Baker. Since then he has not done much. Last season he hit .250/.320/.382 and was 2-4 in SB's. Ransom also had a 2.4 RAR (Runs-Above-Replacement) which is easily replaceable and I hope that Cubs management sees he should not make major league squad. Ransom has shown a little bit more power (not much more), but has never put up superb numbers in the minors either. Ron Shandler predicts Ransom to hit .233/.294/.369 next year in 124 pa's and -1.6 RAR which the Cubs definitely don’t need on the bench.
