#Cubs trim 9 from camp
The Cubs trimmed nine non-roster invitees from the spring camp roster, including outfielders Albert Almora and Matt Murton, plus infielder Kris Negron. With the moves, the Cubs now have 36 players in camp.
Almora, Murton, and Negron were assigned to the Minor League camp along with right-handed pitchers Brandon Gomes, Jean Machi and Ryan Williams; infielder Jesus Guzman; and outfielders John Andreoli and Juan Perez.
Williams, who was the Cubs’ Minor League Pitcher of the Year last season, will pitch in one of the Cubs’ exhibition games against the Mets in Las Vegas next week.
