Torrealba was granted a release from the Cubs organization Friday, the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.
He asked to be released, as he clearly wasn't a big part of the Cubs' plans in Triple-A. He will now look to catch on with either a contending team or a team that will give him a chance on the big league roster. In his last season in the big leagues (2013 with the Rockies) he posted a .240 average with zero home runs in 196 plate appearances, so he's not worth much fantasy consideration.
