The Chicago Cubs made their first round of roster cuts yesterday, trimming six pitchers from the spring roster. With less than a month to go, the Cubs have a lot more roster decisions to make.

The Chicago Cubs have a huge roster this spring. Probably one of the biggest they ever had. The Cubs have close to 40 pitchers in camp and over 60 total players. With that many players, it was time to make some cuts and the Cubs sent six pitchers to minor league camp. The current spring roster now stands at 60.

Often times there just aren’t enough innings and at-bats to go around. So Maddon and the Cubs said that these six guys would get more chances to pitch in minor league camp than the big league one.
