Gonzalez cleared waivers and elected free agency Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has now failed to stick with two teams this season, hitting a combined .200/.289/.283 in 45 games with the Cubs and Indians. There's no real reason to believe he'll be significantly better if he's able to find a job with another team.

Gonzalez was designated for assignment Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

If Gonzalez clears waivers, the Cubs hope he will accept an assignment to Triple-A, but that would be his call. He had not been productive, hitting .127 with one home run and 24 strikeouts over his last 20 games (55 at-bats).
