The Chicago Cubs cut outfielders Jake Fox and Sam Fuld and right-handed pitcher Jose Ascansio on Tuesday to drop the Cubs spring roster to 37 players. All 3 players were optioned to the Cubs Triple-A affiliate in Iowa. During the spring session, Fox hit .350 with 4 home runs and 16 RBI’s, while Fuld hit .260 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI’s. Manager Lou Pinella said that both players are very close to becoming major league players and that Fuld was the most improved player form one camp to the next. We should see both players at one point or another during the course of the 2009 MLB season.
