3/18 Roster moves

The Cubs assigned seven players to Minor League camp, including top prospects Javier Baez and Jorge Soler, and reduced the spring roster from 53 to 46 players. Infielders Junior Lake and Josh Vitters were optioned to Triple-A Iowa, while infielder Christian Villanueva was optioned to Double-A Tennessee. Soler was optioned to Class A Daytona. Three non-roster invitees were assigned to Minor League camp, including Baez, right-handed pitcher Barret Loux, and catcher Rafael Lopez.

The Cubs’ spring roster consists of 24 pitchers (eight non-roster invitees), four catchers (one non-roster invitee), nine infielders (four non-roster invitees) and nine outfielders (three non-roster invitees).

Very excited and happy to see 3B Christian Villanueva going to AA.

Me too Jasper, a good move…he could be the surprise call up if and (when) Valbuena stops hitting….

where did Baez get optioned to?
