Cubs make a ton of roster moves

The Chicago Cubs made several roster moves on Thursday as they activated righties Kyle Hendricks, Codi Heuer and Ethan Roberts and outfielders Jason Heyward and Rafael Ortega from the 60-day injured list.
Heyward has already been told that he will be released, so this is just a formality.
In more roster news, infielder David Bote, lefty pitcher Steven Brault, outfielder Narcisco Crook, righty pitcher Anderson Espinoza and outfielder Franmil Reyes all cleared waivers and were sent to Iowa.
The Cubs 40-man roster is at 36 players, but they are saving a few spots open for their prospects.
MLB teams will have until Tuesday to add non-40-man players to their roster to protect them from the upcoming Rule 5 Draft.
