2012 Cubs Roster: Blake DeWitt Accepts Minor League Assignment

Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago is reporting that the Chicago Cubs infielder Blake DeWitt will stay with the Cubs heading into the 2012 season:

The 4-year veteran DeWitt came to the Cubs in the Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot trade in 2010. He has collected 1213 PAs over his career, own a .260/.329/.385 slash to go with 21 homers.

DeWitt was removed from the 40 man roster after the Cubs took INF Adrian Cardenas off waivers from the Oakland Athletics in early February. DeWitt has a Spring Training invite, meaning he may be able to win a starting job, but in all likelihood will start the season in Triple-A Iowa.
