Cubs Cut Nine Players
The Cubs started setting their 4o-man roster today by cutting a few players by sending down a few players to the minors. The Cubs sent Billy Petrick and Tyler Colvin to the minors. The others were non-roster invitees, and they were assigned to the Minor League camp. The list includes right-handed pitchers Esmailin Caridad and Jose Ceda, left-hander Geoff Jones, outfielder Andres Torres, infielder Bobby Scales, and catchers Wellington Castillo and Josh Donaldson. Not really major news, but it is worth reporting.
