Cubs release right-handed pitcher

The Chicago Cubs released Spencer Patton last week according to the official Cubs transaction page.

Patton broke into the big leagues with Texas in 2014 and went 1-0 with a 0.96 ERA (1 ER/9.1 IP) in nine big league relief appearances before splitting the 2015 campaign between the Rangers and Triple-A Round Rock. He was acquired by the Cubs from Texas last November. Overall, Patton is 3-2 with a 6.31 ERA (32 ER/45.2 IP) in 45 major league relief outings, averaging more than one strikeout per inning with 48 strikeouts in 45.2 frames.
