After he was designated for assignment by the Chicago Cubs, catcher Miguel Montero thanked fans for their support in a series of tweets.
In the tweets, Montero thanked his teammates and fans for their support throughout his two-plus seasons in Chicago, and signed off with his signature hashtag:
“Dear fans, today I say goodbye to the greatest fans. I want to thank you for the support,” Montero said. “It was an awesome ride. Winning the World Series was simply fantastic. Thank you to my teammates, good luck to everyone of you.”
“Chicago will always be in my heart,” he added.
Montero, who criticized pitcher Jake Arrieta for his handling of the Washington Nationals’ running game in a Tuesday loss, was designated for assignment by the team on Wednesday.
