Rowan Wick has Article XX-D rights, so he has the right to elect free-agency after being outrighted.
He can elect to be a free-agent immediately (but forfeit his $1.55M contract), or accept the outright assignment (and keep the $1.55M salary) and defer free-agency until after the conclusion of the MLB regular season (unless he is added back to an MLB 40-man roster in the meantime).

In Minor League Camp roster news (3/27), RHP Chris Clarke, RHP Danis Correa, LHP Bailey Horn, RHP Kyle Johnson, RHP Chris Kachmar, RHP Cayne Ueckert, and RHP Blake Whitney, and C Caleb Knight have been moved down from the AAA Iowa squad to the AA Tennessee squad, RHP Tyler Santana and INF Scott McKeon were moved-down from the AA Tennessee squad to the Hi-A South Bend squad, and RHP Kevin Valdez was moved-down from the Lo-A Myrtle Beach squad to the Extended Spring Training (Mesa) group.
With C Luis Torrens likely to be on the Cubs MLB 26-man Opening Day roster and with C Dom Nunez injured in a game on Saturday (severity of injury unknown at this time), it appears that AA Tennessee catchers C Jake Washer and/or Bryce Windham - MAY - be moved up to the AAA Iowa squad from the AA Tennessee squad (TBD).

Good to know, AZ Phil, and thanks! I like that they’re both not longtime AAA retreads - makes the Iowa squad more interesting.

In that spirit the I-Cubs play a few games each season as Los Demonios, a nod to a previous local bush league team, the Des Moines Demons.

McKinstry traded to Tigers for single A pitcher Carlos Guzman. Glad the roster spot is going somewhere else.

That's hilarious and awesome. The story of the whale reminds me of the WKRP in Cincinnati episode where the boss (Gordon Jump) decides releasing turkeys from a helicopter would be a good Thanksgiving promotion. Later, he walks into studio covered in turkey feathers: "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."
These fun minor-league promotions are a great idea. I just learned that MiLB has an outreach program to attract Latino/a fans, "La Copa de la Diversión," or "The Fun Cup," where teams have games as an alternate Spanish identity. For example, the Beloit Sky Carp (already one of the great names) are going to be "Las Paletas de Beloit," complete with a logo of a paleta (Mexican popsicle-my favorite is tamarindo) tossing a baseball. Yes, the Rocket City Trash Pandas (my favorite name) are getting in on the act, becoming "Los Lunaticos de Rocket City."
