Cubs release Chad Gaudin

The Chicago Cubs have released Chad Gaudin, who came over to Chicago in the Rich Harden trade last year.

He's 26, right-handed, was a decent starter for the A's in 2007, and had a 4.14 FIP splitting between the Cubs and A's last year.

I'm sitting here trying to figure out why the Rangers would keep Warner Madrigal in the bullpen instead of Gaudin, and whether it would be worth dropping someone (probably Luis Mendoza) from the 40 man roster in order to option Madrigal and sign Gaudin.
