Cubs infielder Logan Watkins out for the season with torn Achilles’ tendon

1 Comment

Logan Watkins, who had stints with the Cubs in each of the past two seasons, announced via Twitter that he suffered a torn Achilles’ tendon while working out in Arizona.

Watkins was the Cubs’ minor league player of the year in 2012, but hasn’t been very productive at Triple-A for the past two seasons. He got into 27 games for the Cubs in 2013 and another 31 games for them last year, hitting a combined .233 with one homer and a .569 OPS while playing mostly second base.

He would have competed for a bench spot during spring training, but now figures to miss the entire season.
