Cubs finalize roster for NL Wild Card Series


The Cubs begin their pursuit for another championship on Wednesday at Wrigley Field, when they open their best-of-three NL Wild Card Series against the Marlins.

Prior to the game, the Cubs released their 28-man roster for the series, with no major surprises. Infielder Ildemaro Vargas has been activated off the 10-day injured list, while catcher Josh Phegley's contract has been selected from the South Bend alternate site.
