After  the Cubs  granted  the  left-hander Doubront  the  release  they  still  owe  him 45  days  termination pay,  that  is  about    $ 473,000  which  they  had  agreed  in  a contract  they signed  for $1.925 million.

Now the  Cubs  spring  training  roster  stands  at 38  players  only with RHP Jacob  Turner, RHP Dallas  Beeler, OF Chris Denorfia  and  LHP  Tsuyoshi  Wada  being  expected  to  start  the season on  the disabled  list. Though  the  Cubs  have nine  more  decisions  to make between  the  date  and the  Opening  Night.
The  Cubs  produced the  roster  spot  required for  LHP  Phil  Coke with  the  Saturday’s roster  move.
