13 Roster Changes
Adrian Nieto and Matt Davidson, are on the way to Charlotte. According to Rick Hahn shared that Nieto needs more time in development. He is going well but needs more time. Davidson really struggled in 2014, has still not met the expectations from the deal that brought him to Chicago and sent Addison Reed to Arizona. He put a lot of pressure on himself, Hahn said and now that those issues have been resolved, he should be on track for a great season.
Shortstop Tyler Saladino, Kevan Smith and Trayce Thompson have also been sent to Charlotte.
Shortstop Tim Anderson, Dan Black, Andy La Roche, Jared Mitchell, Tyler Danish and J.D. Martin have all been sent to Minor League camp.
