Cubs select three to finalize roster for opener
CHICAGO -- The Cubs set their 25-man Opening Day roster on Thursday, selecting the contracts of right-handed pitcher Shawn Camp, infielder Blake DeWitt and outfielder Joe Mather.

Outfielder Tony Campana and right-handed pitcher Casey Coleman were optioned to Triple-A Iowa, and left-handed pitcher John Gaub was claimed off waivers by the Rays. Gaub had been acquired from the Indians along with Jeff Stevens and Chris Archer for Mark DeRosa in December 2008.

Right-handed pitcher Marcos Mateo was placed on the 60-day disabled list with ulnar neuritis in his right elbow.

With the moves, the Cubs 40-man roster is now at 40.
