The Cubs announced another round of spring roster cuts Friday morning. Anthony Rizzo and Adrian Cardenas were optioned to Triple-A Iowa. Brett Jackson, Jay Jackson, James Adduci, Michael Brenly and Bobby Scales were assigned to minor league camp.
Brett Jackson is not on the Cubs’ 40-man roster so he was reassigned and not optioned out. The Cubs trimmed seven players in the seventh round of cuts. The Cubs spring roster officially stands at 40 (30 on the 40-man roster and 10 non-roster invitees.)
Brett Jackson did not sound too thrilled about being reassigned and told reporters his plan. Jackson said he is going to go to Iowa and “knock the crap out of the ball.” Dale Sveum told the media that is was tough sending Brett Jackson down. The Cubs’ skipper feels Jackson is ready to play in the major leagues.
