Chicago Cubs: Roster trimmed to 43 as seven players are cut

As the Chicago Cubs trimmed down the roster to 43 players, a few notables made their exit from camp. Most notably the Cubs top prospect Eloy Jimenez, sending him and six others to minor league camp. Others cut included outfielder Jacob Hannemann, catcher Victor Caratini, pitchers Pierce Johnson and Felix Pena were optioned to Iowa. Infielder Chesny Young, outfielders Mark Zagunis and Jimenez were assigned to minor league camp.

The two players of this group that has garnered the most praise this spring are Young and Jimenez. Both made an impression on Joe Maddon–as well as the rest of the league. With no chance of making the team as well as making their case complete, the group will start working towards the minor leagues to get in at-bats, innings, etc.
