Logan Watkins tore his Achilles during a workout at the Cubs' spring training complex Wednesday.
He had just arrived in Arizona on Tuesday. Achilles tears can take a full year to recover from, so the 25-year-old utility infielder can probably be ruled out for the entire 2015 season. Watkins batted .246/.269/.338 in 31 games for the Cubs last summer. Feb 5 - 10:22 AM

Cubs designated INF Logan Watkins for assignment.

Watkins, 25, has posted decent numbers in the minors but has hit just .233/.269/.301 over 110 plate appearances in the majors. He's versatile and young, so some team might claim him on waivers.

Logan Watkins went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a 5-1 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Watkins and Chris Valaika went back-to-back against Justin Masterson in the fourth inning. It was the first home run of Watkins' major league career. The 25-year-old made the start in right field for the first game of the doubleheader, as the Cubs wanted to take it easy on Jorge Soler's hamstring. Watkins has played all over the place in Triple-A this season and could stick as a utility player, though it probably won't lead to much fantasy value.
