Updated: The Cubs optioned Rich Hill to Iowa (AAA) on Wednesday afternoon.

The Cubs assigned non-roster invitee Michael Restovich to the Minor League camp on Wednesday morning; reducing the big league roster to 29. Restovich had a decent spring for the Cubs in the beginning but his production fell off as of late. Restovich was only hitting .204 as of Tuesday. His OBP and SLG dropped to .250/.367. On March 24th Restovich’s numbers were a respectable .278/.316/.500.

There are four more cuts coming….who will be next? This should have put Ryan Theriot on the 25-man roster when the season starts.
