Early Guess at Cubs 25-Man Roster

Just throwing this out there. The back-up catcher and the right fielder are guesses. Jeff Samardzija is being talked about as a starter, even in Iowa (think Sean Marshall as the no. 5 once Marquis is moved) so he doesn't make the list.  I do expect Marshall to move into the rotation, opening another bullpen spot. And I'm not so sure about Wuertz.

For now, I'm listing 14 hitters and 11 pitchers. Hoffpauir could go for a corner infielder who can play third, too. Guesses/likely changes are marked with a *.
