The Chicago Cubs today announced that right-handed pitcher Roberto Novoa has been optioned to Triple-A Iowa. The Cubs' spring roster now stands at 35 players.
Roberto Novoa had a chance to win a bullpen job with Detroit and now will probably make Chicago's relief staff. He pitched most of last season in
Double-A but also worked 16 games for the Tigers and was 1-1 with a 5.57 ERA.

At this point, Tiger fans have heard plenty about the upside and inconsistencies of the team's new bullpen arm. But what about the guys the team just gave up? How does this trio of prospects project, and could this trade backfire down the road?
