|Cubs Release Millar; Tracy Gets Final Roster Spot
|SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) _ The Chicago Cubs released Kevin Millar on Tuesday, giving their final roster spot to infielder Chad Tracy.
The 38-year-old Millar hit .242 in 18 games this spring. He batted .223 with seven home runs and 29 RBIs for Toronto last year. He has also played for Florida, Boston and Baltimore.
The 29-year old Tracy made the opening day roster because he hits left-handed and has been a regular at third base. After spending all of his career with Arizona, he joined the Cubs as a non-roster invitee. He is hitting .243 in 20 games.
The Cubs also sent outfielder Sam Fuld and infielder Micah Hoffpauir to Triple-A Iowa and sent catcher Chris Robinson to their minior league camp for reassignment.
