A couple prospects head to minor league camp.
The Cubs can save some cash under the luxury tax, and can also keep an out-of-options pitcher.

Another reclamation project/depth arm for the Cubs.
The 28-year-old lefty is a long-shot to return to competitive pitching, but his story is a very valuable one.
Simmons will be in the bullpen competition this spring.

A speedy defender who could be an option for the Cubs coming out of Spring Training, or depth at AAA.
The extreme contingency plan has been set.
The Cubs add some photogenic depth.
Another arm with upside to add to the mix.

Good to have the lefty back!
