The Cubs suspended Ian Stewart indefinitely after he angrily tweeted about his status within the organization. The team has amended that suspension to ten days, citing a violation of the loyalty clause in his contract, according to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune. Stewart is appealing the suspension.

Stewart and the Cubs agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal during the off-season, coming off of a season in which the corner infielder posted a meager .627 OPS. The Cubs sent him to Triple-A to prove himself, but he has a .657 OPS in 133 trips to the plate in Iowa.

    Did Mariano Rivera do something classy today to cancel out Ian Stewart’s shenanigans?

    they only made it 10 days so he can get back on the field and attempt to show he can be traded. Doubtful, though.

    The real suspension should have been getting designated for assignment. Both are ten days, but one leaves your team with 100% less Ian Stewart.

      He was DFA’ed, after clearing waivers back at the end of April.
