The Cubs have released two-time all-star outfielder Shane Victorino on Monday according to multiple reports.

In 2016, he was hitting .233 with five RBIs in nine games (34 at-bats) with the Iowa Cubs. He was signed for one million and would have been owed another million if he had made it back to the big leagues with the Cubs.

The two-time all-star and four-time gold glove winner can now pursue another opportunity with another club if he is interested.

For his career, he is a lifetime .275 hitter with 108 homers and 489 RBIs with 231 stolen bases. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the sixth round of the 1999 MLB Draft.
