BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles have traded disgruntled utility player Ryan Freel to the Chicago Cubs for reserve outfielder Joey Gathright.

Freel was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 20 after being struck in the head with an attempted pickoff throw. He insisted he felt fine, and was disappointed about the conditions surrounding a stress test he was forced to take before beginning his rehabilitation assignment.

He was also frustrated over a lack of playing time.

Obtained in a December trade with Cincinnati, Freel hit .133 in nine games with Baltimore.

Gathright was batting .214 with Chicago this season. He will be assigned to the Orioles' Triple-A team in Norfolk.
