Phil,

Any update on some of the injured Cubs? Some who come to mind are Micah Gibbs, Marcos Mateo, Evan Crawford, Graham Hicks, Zac Rosscup, and David Cales? Also, any idea how Matt Spencer to the mound is working out?

Phil,

Any update on some of the injured Cubs? Some who come to mind are Micah Gibbs, Marcos Mateo, Evan Crawford, Graham Hicks, Zac Rosscup, and David Cales? Also, any idea how Matt Spencer to the mound is working out?

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

K BANSAW: I believe Hicks threw "live" BP last week so he could be close to returning.

Rosscup is shut-down and has been since the last week of Minor League Camp, and same goes for Mateo. I don't know when they are expected to return.

I don't know what's wrong with Micah Gibbs but he is at Fitch Park, though not on the field.

Cales had shoulder surgery last year but I haven't seen him on the field since PFPs at Minor League Camp.

Evan Crawford had season-ending shoulder surgery during Minor League Camp.

I haven't seen Matt Spencer on the field since Minor League Camp, but he was throwing 98 MPH with absolutely zero command at Instructs last fall.

On the bright side, RHP Arturo Maltos-Garcia (July 2011 TJS) threw a sim game last week and should be close to returning to game action. AMG was drafted by the Cubs in the 30th round of the 2011 June draft out of Lamar CC even though he blew out his elbow throwing in a JUCO tournament game at Central Arizona JC prior to the draft, and he is about a month behind Rob Whitenack, who had his TJS last June. Maltos-Garcia supposedly has a killer drop-curve, but it might be a while before he is allowed to throw it in a game.

rosscup is in az and throwing again. by throwing i mean literally throwing, not pitching. (via his twitter)

Vogelbach--ouch.

Cool page, youngest at each level in minors

a few cubs in there

Is it just me, or does Albert look a little smaller this year?

Hey, AZ, what do you think of Candelerio? I saw his name come up last year a lot in a positive way and his line looks pretty good again so far this year. How does his 3B skills look? Can he be our new 3B prospect in place of Vitters soon? Pleeeeeeze?

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

O&B: Jeimer Candelario is a switch-hitter and he really drives the ball left-handed. He should develop some HR power as he matures, too.

He is a below-average defensive third-baseman, however, and I wouldn't be surprised if ends up a corner OF.

PHIL: What is going on with Vogelbach? What pitches has he shown most vulnerability to?

The Bears could still find a roster spot for the kid.

Secondly, with 34 errors, are you seeing ANYTHING on the field that would indicate this "Cubs Way", other than the "Same Old Way"?

Yeah, why hasn't the Cubs Way produced magic wand like effects virtually overnight?

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

E-MAN: Vogelbach is usually a very patient hitter who will use the entire field, but for some reason he has been more aggressive at the plate the last couple of weeks, and he has been grounding out a lot to the right side of the infield. He seems to be over-anxious and has been trying to pull everything.

Despite all of the infield practice they take at Minor League Camp and Extended Spring Training, Vogelbach has been playing 1st base like a man with two left feet.

He was better last year pre-Instructs when he just did what came natural.

I'm not exactly sure how The Cubs Way is being implemented. I do know that the minor league managers and coaches have a lot more analytical work to do after each day's game and/or workout, and some of it is apparently pretty complicated (compared to what they used to have to do).

Junior Lake was supposedly on 7 day DL list, any idea how he got hurt and when he might be back?

http://muskat.mlblogs.com/2012/04/30/430-extr...

Junior Lake has not joined one of the Cubs’ Minor League teams because he’s been rehabbing at the extended Spring Training camp in Mesa, Ariz. Lake has been slowed by back problems. The Cubs hope he’ll be assigned to a team in the next 10 days or so.

  • i wonder if almost literally not playing for a month+ had anything to do with his immediate-use devaluation...seriously.

    i still wonder what he was doing while he was up besides enjoying meal money, riding on planes, and having the cleanest uniform on the team.

  • RYNO: With one exception, a player on an MLB DL can be traded. The only exception is during the waiver period that begins at 5 PM (Eastern) on July 31st.

    NOTE: Because July 31st falls on a Sunday in 2016, the "non-waiver" trade deadline will be extended one day (to 4 PM Eastern on August 1st) in 2016 (only).

  • Across 6 different seasons (1128 PAs), Federowicz has demolished AAA pitching to the tune of a .910 OPS. Even though the eyeball test this year says he might be closer to the .542 OPS he's posted in only 298 MLB PAs, it's kind of surprising there isn't a single team out there willing to take a chance on him being an acceptable bat and plus defense catcher.

  • Weird. I respect Chapman's body of work, but I guess I don't value closers as much as Brennaman. Also, Schwarber can't be traded? For some reason I have it in my head you can't trade a guy on the DL.

  • Yeah, I have fond memories of old #28. He was a good field, no hit CF when he came up with the Mets, but later on in Chicago he had learned how to work the count and then demolish 3-2 fastballs. (Wish Javy Baez had the concept.) I remember, in '69 or '70, someone (maybe Durocher) saying that Hickman and Joe Torre were about the two best righty hitters in the league.

  • Unfortunately, Peralta is indeed an extreme flyball pitcher. Even when he was at his best (2011-14) he surrendered a lot of HR.

    He has had significantly better success versus LH hitters than versus RH hitters, thanks to a plus-splitter. So he will probably be used like a LHRP (even though he is a RHP).
