Right Pedro Sling returns home to the Dominican Republic on leave for personal reasons, said Gordon Wittenmeier of NBC Sports Chicago. It seems that these are all the details known at the moment, as the little ones have not given an official comment on the situation.
A member of the Cubs from 2013-19, Strop returned to the club on a small championship deal last September, with an injury and a brief (2 1/3 innings) with the Reds, his only action in the 2020 season. Strop signed a new underage contract with Chicago in February and then reached MLB’s list for a pair of countless innings for two appearances in April. He has been working at the Cubs alternative training site since April 1
It is not clear when or even whether the Ceiling can return to action. Wittenmyer notes that Strop has not been included in the Triple-A roster (or lists of any of the Cubs’ affiliates), which is remarkable since the minor league season begins this week.
