Cubs option righty Sonnanstine to Triple-A
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Right-handed pitcher Andy Sonnanstine was assigned outright to the Cubs' Triple-A Iowa roster on Thursday.

Sonnanstine, 29, had appeared in four Cactus League games, giving up eight runs on 13 hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out three. Last season, the right-hander was 0-2 with a 5.55 ERA in 15 games (four starts) with the Rays.

With the move, Sonnanstine was taken off the Cubs' 40-man roster, which is now at 39. The spring camp roster is 47 and consists of of 21 pitchers (five non-roster invitees), five catchers (two non-roster invitees), 12 infielders (five non-roster invitees) and nine outfielders (three non-roster invitees).
