The Chicago Cubs announced a 50-man player pool for summer camp, which opens Friday. The Cubs will have 39 players at Wrigley Field and 11 at South Bend, including top prospects outfielder Brennen Davis and lefty Brailyn Marquez. Ten spots are still vacant for the 60-player pool.

The St. Louis Cardinals announced they are bringing 44 players to Busch Stadium for summer camp to train beginning Friday. The club said it would release the names of the rest of 60-man pool later. The Cards will also use their Double-A affiliate Springfield as a second training site, which will open around July 14th. There are 22 pitchers on the initial list.

The Chicago White Sox signed Refugio, Texas High right-hander Jared Kelley. The second-round pick and 47th overall choice agreed to a three-million dollar signing bonus. His fastball has been clocked at 98 mile per hour. The White Sox has yet to release names for its player pool.
