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

http://minorleaguecentral.com/youngest.php

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.

  • Nimmo certainly does not want to see the Cubs leave town. His first MLB rbi last night and now his first HR.

    At least Hammel is eating some innings ... this is the kind of game Peralta should be used if at all.

  • OK, the hell with it.

    It's July 1 -- Hammel starting to suck right on schedule.

    Other than sweeping the Reds -- a bad team actively trying to lose -- this will make 8 losses in 9 games to good teams (Cards, Marlins, Mets). Not good at all.

  • BRADSBEARD: Javier Assad was still pitching into the 6th inning, and the first batter he faced reached base on an E-4 (that was Assad's 70th and final pitch of the game). Then Leathersich relieved Assad and retired the second batter 4-3 on the first pitch of the AB (the runner at 1st base advanced to 2nd on the play), and then on an 0-1 pitch the third batter in the inning (second one faced by Leathersich) lined into an inning-ending 6-4 DP (baserunner doubled off 2nd base). When calculating GO/AO, double plays and triple plays count as only one out.

  • The thing with Heyward is its not just free agency. He is way under performing his career #s. He's making the same % of contact but his soft contact is much higher and hard contact much lower than all his previous years so there is something very specifically going on this year causing the issues. Chances are he will eventually get back to his previous #s and it's better to get the slump now and get that hot run later but I wish I knew what is different about this year. He's either just not seeing the ball as well or a swing change is causing it.

  • Only 3 pitches for Leathersich. Not much of a rehab outing.

    Thanks for the reporting Phil.
