Outrighted To Minors: Coello, Stevens

We'll keep track of all of today's outrighted players right here:

  • The Cubs outrighted right-hander Robert Coello to Double-A Tennessee, according to the team transactions page.  The 26-year-old was designated for assignment last week to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Rodrigo Lopez.  Coello made nine starts for the Cubs' Triple-A affiliate this season, posting a 7.82 ERA with 7.6 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9.
  • The Cubbies also sent right-hander Jeff Stevens to Triple-A Iowa, according to the affiliate's transactions page.  Stevens cleared waivers after being DFA'd Monday morning.  That move allowed the Cubs to bring infielder D.J. LeMahieu on to the 40-man roster.
