According to Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald, the Chicago Cubs have outrighted RHP Manuel Corpas off the team's 40-man roster, meaning the Cubs would likely mean to make a corresponding move to put Corpas back on the roster if he wins a spot out of training camp.
Corpas, a once-highly-touted reliever with the Colorado Rockies, missed the entirety of 2011 with Tommy John surgery. The Cubs signed Corpas last December with the hope he could contribute to the club in 2012. The 29-year-old Corpas sports a 3.93 ERA and 3.82 FIP through 286 MLB innings.
The Cubs 2012 Spring Training games being on March 4 with an afternoon game against the Oakland Athletics.
