3/26 Roster moves
The Cubs sent seven players to the Minor League camp on Friday to reduce the spring roster to 33 players. Right-handed pitchers Jeff Gray and Marcos Mateo, lefty John Gaub and outfielder Jim Adduci were optioned to Triple-A Iowa. Infielders Darwin Barney and Bobby Scales and catcher Robinson Chirinos were assigned to the Minor League camp.
The roster is now at 33, including 15 pitchers, three catchers, nine infielders, and six outfielders. Both Ted Lilly and Angel Guzman will open the season on the disabled list.
