The Chicago Cubs have added Triple-A Iowa shortstop Mike Freeman to the 40-man roster on Saturday.

Freeman will give the Cubs more depth and take the place of Addison Russell who is currently on administrative leave because of allegations of domestic abuse.

Freeman will wear No. 4 and be Javy Baez's backup at shortstop.

For the season in the minors, he batted .275 with 17 doubles, 6 homers, and 43 RBI. He posted a .330 on-base percentage and a .396 slugging percentage, good for a .726 OPS. Freeman saw action at shortstop (55 games), second base (16 games), center field (four games) and third base (one game) with Iowa this year.

The 31-year old has played parts of the last two major league seasons with Arizona (2016), Seattle (2016-17), the Dodgers (2017) and the Cubs (2017).
