Yes. He was an over-aged football player (WR) from Florida St. trying to regain his high school and somewhat limited college baseball skills.

BA updated transaction page:

Chicago Cubs

Signed: LHP Tsuyoshi Wada (re-signed under new terms), C Nathan Maldonado (re-signed)
Released: RHP Paolo Espino, RHP Chang-Yong Lim, RHP Loiger Padron, RHP Orbandy Rodriguez, RHP Nick Struck, LHP Frank Del Valle, LHP Tsuyoshi Wada (subsequently re-signed), LHP Al Yevoli, C Wilfredo Petit, 2B Ryan Roberts, SS Walter Ibarra, SS Alex Sanchez, OF Jose Dore, OF Reggie Golden
Traded: 1B Trevor Gretzky to Angels for 1B Matt Scioscia
Optioned to Triple-A: RHP Blake Parker, RHP Neil Ramirez

Right fielder Reggie Golden hit .236/.308/.390 in 139 pro games, but the Cubs expected much more from their 2010 second-rounder based on his bat speed and raw tools. Three times he ranked among the Cubs top 31 prospects, but he topped out at low Class A Kane County in the Chicago system last year.

Per MLBTradeRumors.com
Veteran outfielder Darnell McDonald announced his retirement from baseball late last night via Instagram. McDonald re-signed with the Cubs on a minor league deal in December, but he has instead decided to call it a career.

"After playing [15 years] professionally I'm humbled to announce that I'm hanging up my spikes. When one dream ends a new one begins. BIG thanks to everyone that has helped me fulfill my dream of playing in the show," the 35-year-old wrote.

McDonald posted a career .285/.353/.453 slash line against left-handed pitchers at the Major League level. The Colorado native spent the bulk of 2013 at Triple-A Iowa, where he slashed .236/.307/.346 in 294 plate appearances with four homers. He was solid in the bigs as well, however, hitting .302/.351/.434 with a homer in 57 PAs. McDonald will be remembered mostly for his time with the Red Sox, but he also saw big league action with the Orioles, Twins, Reds, Yankees, and Cubs.

As per MLBTradeRumors:
The Cubs have released outfielder Mitch Maier, per Baseball America's Matt Eddy. Maier, drafted by the Royals with the 30th overall pick of the 2003 amateur draft, spent 2013 with the Red Sox's Triple-A affiliate and posted a .310/.431/.882 line, though he only received 137 plate appearances due to a wrist injury. The 31-year-old, who signed a minor league deal with the Cubs last December, hasn't appeared in a MLB game since 2012, but has slashed .248/.327/.671 during his six-year career, all with the Royals.
