MESA – The Chicago Cubs have assigned eight players to minor league camp and added right-handed pitcher Michael Rucker to major league camp as a non-roster invitee. Rucker was recently returned to the Cubs organization after being selected by Baltimore in the major league phase of the Rule 5 Draft last December. Chicago’s camp roster now stands at 44 players.
Chicago’s spring roster of 44 players consists of 26 pitchers (which includes seven non-roster invitees), four catchers (two non-roster invitees), eight infielders (two non-roster invitees) and six outfielders (one non-roster invitee).
