#Cubs set Opening Day roster
Cubs manager Joe Maddon told Neil Ramirez, Matt Szczur and Tommy La Stella that they made the Opening Day roster. Javier Baez will open on the 15-day DL, although the start day will be retroactive. He has a bruised left thumb but could be ready when the Cubs open the season in Chicago April 11. The final 25 are set, barring injuries between now and Opening night. The Cubs will carry 13 pitchers and 12 position players.
