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.

  • if you save the lumber from your constant trips to the cross you can build your very own safe space to view my posts.

  • @billybucks you speak the truth and it's precisely what me and others have been saying for over a year. It's an unfortunate hitch in his game, one that seems correctable, but so far has not been corrected. Also a hitch that is going over 3 seasons now and no one has been able to truly exploit in any meaningful way (except sort of the Royals in that Wild Card game although they stole plenty of bases off the other pitchers in that game and the rest of the playoff teams the rest of that run).

  • AZBOBBOP: Nothing new on Oscar de la Cruz. Still shut down with elbow issues.

  • I nominate Sean Rodriguez.

  • who's this guy being all reasonable and stuff?

    pick someone on the board who's literally worse than hitler and start screaming about it. cubs 2016!

  • It's not pathetic -- it's what we've been waiting for!

  • Yikes -- I was off the site for a short while and it blew up.

    Gentlemen -- it is apparent that Lester has a weakness in his game. Everybody knows about it. He has, apparently, tried to work on it, but without success. Fortunately, he is talented enough that he is able to largely overcome his shortcoming.

    I am amazed that other teams don't try to bunt on him, but, as has been said, bunting is not a skill many players have.

  • Interesting that Hendricks is going tomorrow -- so, he wasn't really "skipped", just moved back a few days so Jake and Lester could deal against the Pirates. I'm OK with that.

  • PHIL: Thanks for your updates.

    One thing that we are seeing come to bear is that Theo's obvious strategy has been to stockpile young, power arms in the lower levels while owning bats that are much nearer to MLB ready - then, buying the arms the org needs in order to be highly competitive.

  • It's fun to watch the cards shit the bed anytime of the year

  • I really thought he would be the one getting the call-up. This must be a favor to the player from Theo.

  • I'm already scoreboard watching and it's only the start of May. How pathetic is that?

  • Glad to see Hudson having another good outing. He is so impressive for an 18/yo. Surprised to see Shane V. still there. I thought he would be gone this week. I can picture today. Thanks Phil!

  • stats don't lie. *nods*

  • 2016 Cubs are 0-1 on day after Trans recaps, 20-5 in other games. I enjoy his recaps, but there is a price to pay.

  • He's the Albert Pujols of recaps and has gotten a huge contract based on past performance. He doesn't need to do anything the rest of his days and he'll still get love.
