The Chicago Cubs activated INF David Bote on Monday ahead of the team’s series with the Cincinnati Reds. In order to make room for Bote on the roster, the team designated INF Andrew Romine for assignment.

In 26 games this season, Romine slashed .183/.234/.267 with one home run and five RBIs. Romine has not been particularly great at the plate, but he has been solid off the bench defensively and has even been used as a pitcher in blowouts. Perhaps his most memorable moment this season was his game-tying three-run home run off Craig Kimbrel at Wrigley Field.

As for Bote, he is slashing .202/.270/.339 this season with eight home runs and 32 RBIs. Bote has been a solid depth player for Chicago for some time now, and is three home runs away from tying his career best which he set back in 2019.

This move shouldn’t change much in terms of roster construction. It is refreshing having Bote, an established player, back with the team. However, he is not in the lineup as the Cubs take on the Reds at Wrigley Field on Monday afternoon.
