According to Carrie Muskat, the Cubs outrighted RP Manny Corpas off the 40-man roster to make room for RP Kerry Wood. Corpas is still under contract with the Cubs after he signed a split contract with the team on December 23rd. Corpas will be a non-roster invitee to big league came and compete for a spot in the Cubs’ bullpen.
So … the Kerry Wood signing finally became official today after he the Cubs announced the signing of him at the Cubs convention on January 13th. Kerry Wood will receive 3 million in 2012 and has a 3 million club option for 2013.
The Cubs 40-man roster is at 40 right now.
The rest of the non-roster invitees to big league camp are still expected to be announced this week.
