Cubs Release Kadokura

by Patrick Newman (Apr 2, 2009)

Word out of Japan is that the Cubs have released pitcher Ken Kadokura. Kadokura had appeared in six spring training games and was demoted to the minors on March 18. I don't find this shocking but I did think he'd last longer. 

Kadokura had an offer to join a Korean team in the offseason, but turned it down to join the Cubs. KBO foreign rosters are certainly set at this point, so that option is probably off the table for now. He also said that he had more than one MLB offer, so we'll see if there are any takers for him.
