The Cubs will get to keep defensive wizard Sergio Alcantara after he cleared waivers today (Bastian), and was outrighted to AAA Iowa. He gets a non-roster invite to Spring Training, but the key is that, if he doesn’t make the big league team, the Cubs now get to keep him around as middle infield depth at AAA Iowa.
