Carlos Gutierrez, 26, was claimed off waivers by the Cubs from the Minnesota Twins on October 24. He was originally selected by the Twins in the first round of the 2008 Draft and has gone 15-20 with a 4.11 ERA (154 ER/337.0 IP) in 136 appearances (32 starts) covering the last five seasons in the Twins minor league system.
The Chicago Cubs today selected the contracts of four players and added them to the 40-man roster: right-handed pitcher Trey McNutt from Double-A Tennessee, infielder Christian Villanueva from Single-A Daytona, infielder Logan Watkins from Tennessee and right-handed pitcher Robert Whitenack from Daytona.
Infielder Bryan LaHair has been designated for assignment, as he and the Cubs are pursuing an opportunity for LaHair with a club in Japan. Additionally, right-handed pitcher Carlos Gutierrez cleared waivers and was assigned outright to Triple-A Iowa.
