Guyer Lone Bright Spot in Cub Loss

The EXST A’s defeated the EXST Cubs 5-1 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training action at Papago Park Field #2 in Phoenix this morning.


AA Tennessee OF Brandon Guyer continued his rehab, and was single-handedly responsible for the lone Cub run. He ripped a double down the LF line to open the top of the 4th, then stole 3rd base, and scored on an E-2 catcher’s overthrow on the SB.


Otherwise, the Cubs offense was mainly silent.


Peoria RHP Marcus Hatley (2009 TJS rehab) started the game for the Cubs and threw two hitless & shutout innings (30 pitches), and then RHP Juan Yasser Serrano followed with two more shutout innings (23 pitches).


But LHP Marcos Perez got rocked for four runs on nine hits (seven singles, a double, and a HR) in just 1.2 IP, as he has now allowed 11 runs (10 earned) on 19 hits over his last 8.2 IP covering three outings.


Oakland A's RHP Joey Devine (TJS rehab) threw 2.2 IP of shutout  ball, and was VERY impressive, allowing just one hit and no walks while fanning five.


And 6'7 Dominican bonus baby RHP Michael Inoa threw one shutout inning (1/2 GO/FO) for the A's today, allowing one hit and no walks while throwing two WP

Carlos Marmol featured in tomorrow's Wall Street Journal

Marmol's K Rate Could Make History

Like the rest of the team, the Chicago Cubs' bullpen has largely been a disappointment. But within that pen is a man who hasn't just been effective, but is perhaps on his way to the most dominant performance in baseball history. Carlos Marmol is striking out 45.8% of the batters he faces, which would be the highest rate in history
