Cubs reduce spring roster; assign Baez, Bryant, Russell to minors

The Cubs have assigned three high-profile players to minor league camp, reducing their spring roster from 38 to 35 players.

Infielder Javier Baez has been optioned to Triple-A Iowa.

Two nonroster invitees have been assigned to minor league camp: infielders Kris Bryant and Addison Russell.

Chicago’s spring roster of 35 players consists of 18 pitchers (one nonroster invitee), four catchers (one nonroster invitee), six infielders (one nonroster invitee) and seven outfielders.

This was all obvious. The only thing close to a surtprise is Baez. He has eartned his trip. He has stunk it up as a major Leaguer. batting undr .150 and srtriking out in nearly half of his plate appearances. He has been so pitiful that he isn’t even a trade asset currently.

THE REMAINING QUESTION IS WHO GOES DOWN WHEN BRYANT IS RECALLED FOR GAME 10?
