Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Transactions

chicago cubs logo featureToday, the Chicago Cubs finalized their 25-man roster in advance of the Opening Night game against the Cardinals, designating Ryan Sweeney for assignment (sorry for the short shrift – currently typing on my phone, and I’ll have more later). Sweeney’s 40-man spot goes to Jonathan Herrera, who is the Cubs’ all-purpose utility infielder for now.


Matt Szczur takes the other spot on the 25-man roster, and Chris Denorfia hits the DL.
