Chicago Cubs Release Former 2010 Draft Pick Pierre LePage

The Chicago Cubs have released minor league second baseman Pierre LePage, according to Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus. LePage never appeared in a game with any affiliate of the Cubs in 2012, most recently appearing in Single-A last year.

LePage is listed at just 5-foot-8 and weighs 168 pounds, similar to the build of fellow second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who is listed at 5-foot-8 and 165 pounds. Obviously the comparisons end there, though, as LePage has never played at a level higher than Single-A.

In 65 games with low Single-A Boise in 2010, LePage hit .331/.367/.453 with nine steals, but he followed it up last year by hitting .252/.316/.357 in 66 games for Single-A Peoria.
