Sveum on Stewart: ``he's a Triple A player now''

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Cubs made it official late Friday, and manager Dale Sveum reaffirmed it Saturday morning: Ian Stewart isn't in the team's immediate third base plans any more.
``He's [at Class AAA Iowa] as a triple A player now,'' Sveum said. ``[Cody] Ransom and [Luis] Valbuena are our third basemen now.''
Stewart was activated from the disabled list Friday then optioned to Iowa. He had been rehabbing from a quadriceps strain since spring training, a setback as he tried to return to playing after wrist surgery last season. He was granted free agency after the season, but the team re-signed him to a $2 million contract. It was not guaranteed though he remains on the 40-man roster.
