Cubs released 1B Jair Bogaerts.
Bogaerts didn't even last three months with the organization. The 19-year-old outfielder was acquired from the Red Sox in late March as a player to be named later in the Theo Epstein compensation deal, but the Cubs have already given the pink slip. Wed, Jun 27, 2012 02:45:00 PM

Cubs acquired 1B Jair Bogaerts from the Red Sox as the player to be named later in the Theo Epstein compensation deal.

The Red Sox already acquired right-hander Chris Carpenter last month (who needs elbow surgery), but they are still expected to receive a player to be named later. Bogaerts is the twin brother of highly-regarded infield prospect Xander Bogaerts. The 19-year-old batted .288/.387/.404 with two homers, 27 RBI and a .791 OPS over 47 games last season with Boston's Dominican Summer League team. He's still very early in his development.
