Chicago Cubs Place Former Top Prospect Pitcher On Waivers

The Chicago Cubs recently made a significant move by designating left-handed pitcher Anthony Kay for assignment.

Kay, a former top prospect, had faced challenges with the team, particularly struggling to maintain consistency in the majors.

During his time with the Cubs this season, the 28-year-old lefty posted a high 6.35 ERA in 13 relief appearances, leading to his recent demotion to Triple-A Iowa.

This move signifies the Cubs' decision to remove him from their 40-man roster, and it leaves his future with the team uncertain.

Kay's performance in Triple-A has been better, but his struggles in the majors have raised questions about his long-term prospects.

Moreover, it's worth noting that he will be out of options next year, which could make him an intriguing but risky prospect for other teams if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

The Cubs now have several options regarding Kay's future, including potentially trading him to another team, releasing him, or sending him back to the minor leagues if he clears waivers. Photo Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports
