Cubs' David Bote: Optioned to minors
Bote was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Bote turned in a respectable showing in big-league camp, slashing .282/.364/.461 with one home run in 39 at-bats. There was never a clear path to an Opening Day roster spot for the 24-year-old with the Cubs this spring, but he could earn an opportunity at some point if he builds off a solid 2017 season (.272 average and .792 OPS in 470 at-bats) at Double-A Tennessee.
