Cubs Option 13 Players to MiLB Camp, Including Alzolay, Underwood, De La Cruz
The Cubs’ spring roster is now at 49 (hey, that number seems significant for some reason) after they optioned 13 players to minor league camp. Members of the 40-man roster being moved were Adbert Alzolay, Duane Underwood, and Oscar de la Cruz. Among the non-roster invitees were Thomas Hatch, Ian Rice, Bijan Rademacher, and seven others.
#Cubs send Ps Alzolay, Underwood and De La Cruz to AA Tenn. NRI players to minors are Baldonado, Brooks, Camarena, Garner, Hatch, Roth, Burks, Rademacher, Rice, Vosler

None of this comes as a surprise, as they’ve got to get down to 25 players by the end of spring training. Subsequent rounds of cuts should be much more interesting.
