According to multiple reports, the Cubs made the first round of roster cuts Friday morning. The Cubs assigned right-handed pitchers Marco Carrillo and Trey McNutt to minor league camp along with infielder Jonathan Mota and outfielder Jae-Hoon Ha.
The Cubs’ spring roster now stands at 59 players. Marco Carrillo, Trey McNutt, Jonathan Mota and Jae-Hoon Ha were non-roster invitees to big league camp.
The assignment of Carrillo, McNutt, Mota and Ha come as no surprise. Carrillo and McNutt will be stretched out as starters and need to build innings at Fitch Park.
The Cubs have 20 non-roster players still in camp plus the 39 players currently on the Cubs 40-man roster.
