The Cubs have also lost reliever Manny Corpos to free agency. Rather than offer him arbitration, they
were sending him to the minors outright but Corpos had the right to opt for free agency and he took it. He had done a decent job as a depth guy in the bullpen was deemed expendable. MLBtraderumors.com estimates he would have earned $1.4 next year through arbitration. The Cubs also sent Joe Mather, Justin Germano and Blake Parker to Triple-A Iowa, which will expose them to the Rule 5 draft. They have removed 10 guys from the roster in the last two days. The others: Chris Volstad (claimed on waivers by the Royals), Adrian Cardenas, Miguel Socolovich, Justin Germano, Marcos Mateo and Anthony Recker (claimed on waivers by the Mets). They did add one player yesterday, claiming former first-round pick Carlos Gutierrez from the Twins. Look for a lot more minor activity between now and December.
