Mike Montgomery will begin the 2017 season in the Cubs' bullpen.

Montgomery got a look for an Opening Day rotation spot this spring, as promised, but the Cubs are going with Brett Anderson as their No. 5 starter. Montgomery posted an impressive 2.52 ERA in seven starts and 42 relief appearances last year between Seattle and Chicago.

Brett Anderson has made the Cubs' rotation.

He essentially beat out Mike Montgomery. Anderson projects to start the Cubs' fourth regular-season game, behind Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, and John Lackey. Kyle Hendricks, last year's ERA king, will open the 2017 regular season as the Cubs' fifth starter.

Yasiel Puig (calf) is back in the Dodgers' Cactus League lineup on Thursday.

Puig has been held out of action this week after feeling a tweak in his left calf Sunday while trying to steal a base. It sounds like this is minor, but we all know about Puig's long history of leg issues. He remains a high-risk, high-reward type of fantasy outfielder leading into the 2017 regular season.

Cubs reassigned RHP Williams Perez, RHP Dylan Floro, and LHP David Rollins to minor league camp.

Another round of cuts from Cubs camp, and no real surprises. Perez signed a non-guaranteed minor league contract with Chicago in February after posting a rough 6.04 ERA in 53 2/3 innings last season for the Braves.

Rockies optioned RHP Jeff Hoffman to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Hoffman had a shot at claiming the final spot in the Rockies' rotation this spring, but he didn't pitch well enough. The 24-year-old right-hander will be up at some point this summer.
Mar 23 - 2:16 PM

Cubs optioned 3B Jeimer Candelario to Triple-A Iowa.

The 23-year-old corner infield prospect made his major league debut last July, but he only got 11 at-bats in his six-day stay. Candelario hit .283/.376/.464 with 13 home runs and 77 RBI in 132 games last season between Double-A and Triple-A.
Mar 23 - 2:13 PM

Cubs optioned RHP Alec Mills to Triple-A Iowa.

Mills will function as organizational rotation depth for the Cubs in 2017 after being acquired in a February trade with the Royals. He put up a 6.00 ERA in six Cactus League innings.
Mar 23 - 2:10 PM

Cubs optioned RHP Jake Buchanan to Triple-A Iowa.

Buchanan had a 7.56 ERA in three starts and one relief appearance this spring in the Cactus League. The right-hander will likely work out of the rotation at Iowa.
