Cubs' Chris Gimenez: Expected to open year in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez is expected to open the season at Triple-A Iowa, Jesse Rogers of reports.

Gimenez was the favorite to break camp as the Cubs' backup catcher, but a strong showing in camp by prospect Victor Caratini prompted the Cubs to send the veteran to the minors to open the season. It's possible he could take over as the team's backup if Caratini is sent back to the minors for more regular playing time, but he'll report to Iowa for now. Gimenez has an opt out in his contract if he isn't on the major-league roster by June 1.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini was informed Saturday that he has made the Cubs' Opening Day roster, Jesse Rogers of reports.

In a surprise move, Caratini will open the season as the Cubs' backup catcher. The 24-year-old backstop was expected to open the season in the minors, but a strong showing in camp (.243/.391/.378 slash-line across 46 plate appearances) prompted the Cubs to keep him over veteran Chris Gimenez. The youngster isn't expected to see regular playing time unless Willson Contreras suffers an injury, so it's still possible he heads back to the minors for some more consistent playing time if that proves to be the case.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Likely to make two more spring appearances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop, who made his Cactus League debut Thursday, will likely get into at least two more games before spring training is over and could be ready for the start of the regular season, Carrie Muskat of reports.

Strop has been sidelined this spring with a calf injury and then an illness, which delayed his recovery. He looked good in his debut, setting down the side in order with a strikeout in his inning of work. Manager Joe Maddon indicated that he wants to see how Strop looks in his next few outings before deciding on the righty's status for Opening Day. Unless he suffers a setback, it appears Strop should be ready for the start of the regular season, and he'll slot into a high-leverage role in front of new closer Brandon Morrow.

Cubs' Mike Freeman: Having strong spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman is batting .408 through 49 Cactus League at-bats with two home runs, 10 RBI and four stolen bases.

The 30-year-old leads the Cubs in hits this spring with 20 and has been a pleasant surprise. Freeman likely won't make the 25-man roster to begin the year, with versatile players like Ben Zobrist and Tommy La Stella holding down reserve roles, but he's at least putting himself into the conversation in the event any spots open due to injury. Freeman will likely head to Triple-A, where he spent most of 2017 with three different organizations.

Cubs' Chris Gimenez: Looking like backup catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez will likely be the Cubs' backup catcher, with Victor Caratini being sent to Triple-A, Carrie Muskat of reports.

Manager Joe Maddon seems to favor Gimenez's experience and wants to see Caratini get regular playing time, which he can't do at the MLB level with Willson Contreras entrenched as the starter. If Contreras went down with injury, it wouldn't be surprising to see Caratini leap past Gimenez, however, and snag the starting job, as Gimenez is best served in a part-time role. That gives the veteran limited fantasy appeal heading into the season.
