Dillon Maples threw a bullpen session this morning and looked good. I doubt that he will be held back too much longer,  


Also, Hayden Simpson (Cubs 2010 #1 draft pick) threw "live" BP today and his curve ball was really exploding. I don't know what the velocity was on his fastball (and that is an issue), but at least he was throwing free & easy.


 

AZ Phil - I believe Izaac Garsez has been released or has retired (haven't seen anything on BA...he did not go to Spring Training and was seen at his alma-mater's baseball games over the weekend. I believe he is finishing up his schooling.

BHR: Thanks for the info regarding Garsez. That would explain why he's not in Minor League Camp.


Every year there are one or two guys who don't report, usually older college players who have read the writing on the wall. Sometimes the player will officially file retirement papers, but if he doesn't he will eventually get placed on the Restricted List for a couple of years (keeping the player from signing with another MLB organization or playing independent ball) and then will be quietly released. 

apologies, I can't figure out where the open bold or strong tag is that's screwing up the front page.

Juan Paniagua and Roni Torreyes? Nooooooooooooooooo.

getting work visas or resolving visa issues is sometimes slow. it wouldn't be the only team it's happening with this year or years before.

i'd find it hard to believe torreyes's career has dead ended in organized ball, especially.

could be a family issue... *shrug*

Juan Carlos Paniagua used an assumed name (Juan Callado) when he signed with AZ a few years ago, so he probably would get scrutanized pretty closely by INS anytime he applies for a work visa.

~golf clap~

John Sickels Top 150 with major league ETA.

"18) Javier Baez , SS, Chicago Cubs, 2015

Baez has some issues but his bat speed really impresses me.

25) Jorge Soler , OF, Chicago Cubs, 2014

44) Albert Almora, OF, Chicago Cubs, 2015

98) Dan Vogelbach, 1B, Chicago Cubs, 2015

Vogelbach has an outstanding bat and could rank much, much higher in 2014 once he proves himself in full-season ball.

112) Arodys Vizcaino, RHP, Chicago Cubs, 2013"

Ex-Cub RHP Angel Guzman is a Pitching Coach at Minor League Camp. 


I suspect he will be an Assistant Pitching Coach at Extended Spring Training once the regular season starts, helping David Rosario and Anderson Tavarez with the EXST pitchers, and Rick Tronerud with the Rehab Group.


Guzman should be able to offer lots of helpful advice to kids rehabbing from injuries, since he spent much of his career at Fitch Park doing just that.

Junior Lake out 4-6 weeks with a stress fracture in his top rib on his right side.


Scott Baker to start Sunday.

it's "only spring"...but l.valbuena is leading off vs a lefty again.

cubs had bases loaded with 0 outs in the 3rd...0 runs scored.

cubs are season-ready 2 weeks early. swank.

Italy has been a cool story (hey look, USA can field a second team better than a lot of countries' first team), but I admit I won't be disappointed if they lose tonight and Rizzo gets back to Cubs camp in one piece.

I think I feel like a lot of baseball fans in that I enjoy the Classic (maybe more than ever this year) but I don't want guys from my favorite team playing.

Yeah, it sucks. Junior Lake was injured during the WBC. What? He got hurt in Cubs camp? nvm

  • Now who can argue with that? I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age.
