Updated Minor League Camp Rosters
Here are the Cubs minor league rosters at Fitch Park as they were this morning (3/31).
OF Sam Fuld, 1B Micah Hoffpauir, and catcher Chris Robinson were sent down yesterday, but have not yet reported to Fitch Park.
As I’ve mentioned before, when the Cubs send players to Fitch Park (Minor League Camp) from HoHoKam Park, there are corresponding roster moves made at Fitch Park, as players are either moved downward (Iowa to Daytona, Tennessee to Daytona, et al) or released. (15 players were released last Sunday, although one was later re-signed).
At present, Iowa has 31 players (must get down to 24 by Opening Day), Tennessee has 31 players (must get down to 24 by Opening Day), Daytona has 27 players (must get down to 25 by Opening Day), and Peoria has 31 players (must get down to 25 by Opening Day). The Boise/Mesa squad presently has 39 players on its roster, but that number will actually increase by another 10-12 by this time next week.
The Boise/Mesa group is also the Cubs “Extended Spring Training” (EXST) squad that plays at Fitch Park April-May-June, before the Boise and AZL Cubs (Mesa) teams are formed in mid-June after the Rule 4 Draft. The EXST Cubs usually carry about 50 players, including players who were unable to make the Peoria Opening Day roster, and minor league players (mostly pitchers) who are rehabbing from injuries.
The Iowa and Tennessee clubs will usually carry 12 pitchers and 12 position players, and the Daytona and Peoria clubs will usually carry 13 pitchers and 12 position players. Each full-season affiliate also usually carries one “player-coach” (usually a catcher or a utility infielder) signed to a Minor League Uniform Player Contract who can be temporarily activated if a position player is placed on the minor league 7-day DL. The player-coach is moved back & forth to the roster as needed, sometimes for an extended period of time.

anyone else ready for the all-star break? =p
it's been a tough past couple weeks...except that reds series. i miss playing the reds. that was cool.
To take my mind of this latest disaster...wow, I thought baseball money was crazy, but NBA money is now super-wacko crazy. Joakim Noah is 31 with bad knees and absolutely no offensive game. He can't make a layup. The Knicks just agreed to pay him $72M over 4 years. Holy crap.
Thank you, Jason, for allowing me to get to bed at a decent hour. Very thoughtful.
It will be very interesting to see what Theo does at the deadline. Of course, if Jake doesn't get straightened out, it really doesn't matter. A lot of Jake's comments this year, and his posing for nudie pics in the ESPN magazine, rang some alarm bells -- after one great year (and it was amazingly great), his head has swelled tremendously. Jake, look up the word "hubris", then look in the mirror.
...and we're back from the 3rd rain delay.
at least the cubs have a decent backup of...ummmm....well the minor league system has...uhhh...hmmm.
maybe adam warren can manage to throw less than 100 pitches in 5 innings? no?
Not to worry -- I'm sure Hammel will finish strong in the 2nd half of the season (~sad chuckle, reaches for Scotch bottle~).
Hammel has had a rather challenging last month. I am hoping post-break that Hendrix gets pushed ahead of him. They'll be lucky to win a game in NY
hey, alright...cubs losing by 9 and a 3rd rain delay. awesome.
If baseball does not work out for Patton, I think he's got a future in Civil War re-enactments. He's got a solid Johnny-Reb look to him.
David Ross - the mound awaits you.
RIP jason hammel's awesome ERA.
10 ER in 4ip...almost a full point tacked on tonight, alone. 5HR given up tonight. oogly.
Nimmo certainly does not want to see the Cubs leave town. His first MLB rbi last night and now his first HR.
At least Hammel is eating some innings ... this is the kind of game Peralta should be used if at all.
OK, the hell with it.
It's July 1 -- Hammel starting to suck right on schedule.
Other than sweeping the Reds -- a bad team actively trying to lose -- this will make 8 losses in 9 games to good teams (Cards, Marlins, Mets). Not good at all.
Belicheat a consultant for the Red Sox?
And, so, Jason Hammel decides to test my new resolution right away. Sheesh.
No Wright, no Duda, no Granderson -- no problem for NY. Ugh.
