by -

CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today selected the contract of infielder Jason Kipnis from the Triple-A Iowa roster. Additionally, the Cubs have sent a cash consideration to the San Diego Padres in exchange for the rights to right-handed pitcher Trevor Megill, who has been outrighted off of the 40-man roster and assigned to the club’s South Bend Summer Camp Site. Megill was selected by the Cubs from the Padres in last December’s Rule 5 Draft.

Chicago’s 40-man roster remains at 40 players and its 60-man player pool remains at 57 players: 39 at Wrigley Field and 18 at South Bend.
