Cubs Make Guest Appearance at Camp Day

Having been left off the Cubs NLDS roster and apparently not having anything else better to do, Sean Marshall, Will Ohman, and Craig Monroe participated in the Cubs Arizona Instructional League team's "Camp Day" at Fitch Park this morning. While Monroe put on an awesome BP power display worthy of a big leaguer on Field #2, Marshall and Ohman faced-off in the weekly Camp Day intrasquad game on Field #3. Looking ever bit as rusty as one might expect of a pitcher who has made only three appearances in the last month, Marshall went five innings (71 pitches), giving up one run on ten hits and one walk. He threw 48 strikes and 23 balls, and had an 8/1 GB/FB ratio. But at least he is staying stretched-out should he be needed to replace an injured starting pitcher sometime during the post-season. Ohman pitched just one inning (the top of the 1st), dispatching prospects Darwin Barney, Jonathan Wyatt, and Tony Thomas 1-2-3 on just nine pitches (seven strikes and two balls), the outs coming on an easy 1-3 bounce-out, a lazy F-8, and a K-swinging. Here is today's abridged box score: LINEUPS SQUAD "A" 1. Darwin Barney, SS (1-4, RBI, CS) 2. Jonathan Wyatt, CF (2-3, SB) 3. Tony Thomas, 2B (0-2, BB, 2 K) 4. Marquez Smith, 3B (1-3, R, RBI, SOLO HR, K) 5. Ty Wright, LF (1-3) 6. Kyler Burke, RF (2-3) 7. Carlos Perez, C (1-1, 2B, R) 8. Josh Donaldson, DH-C (1-3, K) 9. Jovan Rosa, 1B (0-3, K, GIDP) NOTE: C. Perez left game with hamstring injury incurred while running bases in top of the 3rd inning and was not replaced in batting order. SQUAD "B" 1. Leon Johnson, CF (3-4, R, BB, K, SB) 2. Marwin Gonzalez, SS (2-4, SB, GIDP) 3. Brandon Guyer, LF (1-4, RBI) 4. Josh Vitters, 3B (0-4) 5. Cliff Andersen, RF (2-4, 2B, 2 K) 6A. Mark Reed, C (0-1, K) 6B. Steve Clevenger, C (0-2) 7. Drew Rundle, 1B (2-4, K) 8. Gian Guzman, 2B (1-3, BB, K) NOTE: Reed left game with injury in top of the 3rd inning (hit in groin by wild pitch. PITCHERS: SQUAD "A" 1.

Hey Phil,

In the interest of accurate reporting, I believe that if there are less attendees then players, you should list the attendees in the box score by name. I believe this is the standard AP style guide procedure.

:)

Kidding aside, thanks as usual for the best in-depth reporting around.

I attend the Cubs Arizona Instructional League Camp Day at Fitch Park in the morning, and the Cubs-D'backs NLDS Game #2 at Chase Field tonight.

Do I have a good life, or what!?

And it's raining in Phoenix as we speak, so they may have to close the roof at Chase Field tonight.

Oh, one more thing:

GO CUBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love the instructional league reports and comments.
Hey, I appreciate all of your posts. Can't find any place else to get the kind of info you provide. Hope to come down and watch some instructional league action next year.

Thanks for the reports, as always.

Arizona Phil, is it true that Billy Muldowney had Tommy John surgery?

Thanks AZ Phil. That's disappointing to hear. Rough luck after he started pretty well in Peoria.

Any news about Dolis?

=========================

NAVIN: Dolis had season-ending surgery sometime in July-August, but I don't know if it was TJ or labrum.

Billy Muldowney didn't have TJ surgery. He had ulnar nerve transposition surgery witch has far less rehab time than TJ. He was throwing in the fall and should be 100% by spring training.

  • been like that everytime I've been there too including Jack Murphy/Qualcomm Stadium. Cubs travel well. It was pretty loud for Angels/Cubs this year and decent for Dodgers/Cubs but Dodger fans definitely turn out better than the Padre fans.
