The Cubs trimmed another number off their camp roster today by outrighting Andy Sonnanstine to Triple-A Iowa. Sonnanstine, who was signed by the Cubs on December 26 has been particularly bad this spring. The 29-year-old right hander gave up eight runs on 13 hits and three walks over five innings while striking out three. Sonnanstine was expected to compete for a bullpen spot this spring, he could still help the Cubs out down the road later this season, but that remains to be seen. The move takes Sonnanstine off of the Cubs 40-man roster which now stands at 39 players. The Cubs camp roster is down to 47 players, 21 pitchers, five catchers, and 12 infielders.
