Gaudin Released and Samardzija sent down

The roster is now set.  No big surprise that the Cubs could find no takers for Gaudin and had to just drop him.  I am okay with that as the upside with Guzman is too high to risk losing him. 

 Sending Jeff down was also the right move- he can always be brought back up later for the bullpen.  If his future is really starting then let him do it in the minors. 

Also means that Patton makes the club.  Can he stick and do well having only played in A ball?  Time will tell.

Here are a couple links...
