Cubs Claim minor leaguer Miguel Negron

Just after Cub fans thought it couldn't get any bigger than the Tony Womack signing, Mr. Hendry has gone out and gotten the Cubs another star player *sarcasm*. Today the Cubs claimed OF Miguel Negron off waivers from Toronto Blue Jays. He was a former first round pick from 2000 and was waived so the Blue Jays could put Ty Taubenhim on their 40-man roster. Negron has some speed, but besides that hasn’t shown much else besides that. He strikes out an awful lot, which is something the Cubs surely don’t need. He looks like a poor man’s Angel Pagan (no knock on Angel), but shows how much value he has.
