Cubs send Nico Hoerner to the minors and name David Bote to 2B. Not a terrible decision, despite Nico hitting .361 in ST. Adbert Alzolay named the #5 starter with Alec Mills in the pen. This is a head-scratcher. Alzolay has looked like shit most of the spring. Released: Cameron Maybin Assigned to minor league camp: Shelby Miller, Pedro Strop and others. Strop hasn't looked to good either. There was a reason we cut him after 2019. He was burnt out then and still is. Looking way too hittable.
