Montgomery, Anderson competing for 5th spot in Cubs rotation

MESA, Ariz. (AP) Mike Montgomery and Brett Anderson are competing for the fifth slot in the Chicago Cubs' rotation. It might not matter who wins the job.

Competition for the opening began in earnest Saturday when Montgomery worked a scoreless inning against Oakland in the home half of Chicago's split-squad games in its first spring training action. Anderson pitches on Monday against the Chicago White Sox.

But manager Joe Maddon made it sound as if each of the left-handers will get plenty of work no matter what happens with the spot.
