Blake DeWitt opts to remain with Cubs

The Cardinals won't be adding infielder Blake DeWitt to their roster as position players get ready to report to camp.

For some reason, the second baseman who is also capable of playing third base and the outfield corners, decided to accept assignment to the minor leagues of the Cubs organization. It seems like an unwise move since the Wee Bears are in full-fledged rebuilding mode. If he does make the big club as a non-roster invitee to spring training, he's going to have to look over his shoulder at younger replacement candidates.

One would think DeWitt would generate some interest from contenders who could use a versatile guy who can hit a little bit for a middle infielder.
