Taguchi among cuts from Cubs camp

50

"The Cubs trimmed the spring roster Sunday, sending catcher Mark Johnson, infielders Andres Blanco and Esteban German and outfielders Brad Snyder and So Taguchi to Minor League camp. The Cubs also optioned right-handed pitchers Kevin Hart and Randy Wells to Triple-A Iowa." Discussion: Piniella puts in good word for him; meanwhile Cubs still have 16 pitchers, 3 catchers, 6 infielders and 5 outfielders, on the spring roster. Process of elimination: I have 19 cemented on the roster (4 OF's, 5 IF's, 1C, 10 Pitchers)---leaving battle of the back up catcher (20), 5th OF'er (21) PH (22) 2-P's (24) THUS; Is Scales on the 25th? Of course >Bako/Hill, Hoffpauir, and then the battle between Samardz, Vizcaino, Guzman and Patton.
