Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Transactions

Given the fully-loaded/healthy roster and late-Spring battle-decisions (Victor Caratini over Chris Gimenez for the back-up catcher job and Eddie Butler over the field for the eighth relief spot), the Cubs roster was pretty easy to piece together by now.

But we technically didn’t have confirmation until Carrie Muskat tweeted out the following:

When you include the other four starters in addition to Jon Lester, here’s how everything breaks down:

Starters (5):

  1. Jon Lester, LHP
  2. Kyle Hendricks, RHP
  3. Yu Darvish, RHP
  4. Jose Quintana, LHP
  5. Tyler Chatwood, RHP

Relievers (8):

  1. Brandon Morrow, RHP
  2. Pedro Strop, RHP
  3. Steve Cishek, RHP
  4. Carl Edwards Jr., RHP
  5. Justin Wilson, LHP
  6. Brian Duensing, LHP
  7. Mike Montgomery, LHP
  8. Eddie Butler, RHP

Infielders (6):

  1. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  2. Javier Baez, 2B

For what it’s worth, this is also the active roster, as listed by the Cubs on their website.
