Extended Roster Update (6/3/12)
Thanks to the great reports from AZ Phil of http://www.thecubreporter.com, I have been able to keep tabs of the Extended Spring Training Roster for the Cubs – which may give insight as to who will make up the Boise Hawks initial roster. (Note, some players who are currently at Fitch Park rehabbing may not be on the list)

A big note to Boise fans – with Javier Baez’s promotion to Peoria last week (and he has hit two mammoth home runs for the Chiefs already), prospect Marco Hernandez will more than likely be the Hawks shortstop, while a familiar face, Willson Contreras, will more than likely return – as a catcher, instead of a corner infielder.
Some interesting names in the mix are outfielders Shawon Dunston Jr. (son of former Cub, Shawon Dunston) and Trey Martin, along with one of the best names on the list, first-baseman Rock Shoulders.
