Cubs getting their roster down to 50 still a long way to get to 25
Nothing too surprising with these moves from the Chicago Cubs. Aaron Brooks and Jose Rosario were optioned down to AAA Iowas, also Left-hander Jack Leathersich. Right-handed pitcher Duane Underwood Jr.

The other people that were sent down by the Cubs were a bunch of non-roster invitees. Seth Frankoff, Casey Kelly, Jhondaniel Medina and Conor Mullee, with left-hander Zac Rosscup were all reassigned to the minor league camp. Maikel Cleto was granted his release.
Nothing of any consequence here by the Cubs. Just making the eventual moves. These young guys will get more work in with their minor league clubs anyway. The players sent down most likely were used during practice.
