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.

  • dodgers calling up julio urias for tommorow's game. neat.

    fernando-mania might have a new heir...dude is 19 (turns 20 in august) and he's got a legit argument for being MLB-ready.

  • Happ was the #9 pick last year, and he moved from OF to 2B in the same offseason that Castro was traded.

    Gleyber also in the picture at second.

  • O&B: I think D. J. Wilson is a legit MLB prospect.

    He is a hyperactive dynamo on the field, a protypical lead-off hitter who is looking to get on base any way he can, a triple machine (if there is such a thing) when he does make solid contact, a daring baserunner who goes berserk once he is on base, and a CF who plays a "no fear" crash & burn style of defense.

    Guys like that sometimes get injured more-often than the average player, but if he can stay healthy and continue to progress, I believe he will be an MLB CF, or at worst a 4th OF.

  • Phil, I just wanted to say thank you for diligently tracking the Cubs prospects in extended spring training and sharing your knowledge with us. It's remarkable how you're able to keep box scores for multiple games at once. I, and I'm sure others here, appreciate the data and insight you provide for us.

    Boy, that is a nifty K:BB ratio Hudson has going at almost 4:1!

    I hope he continues improving.

  • And of course the Bucs won again playing AZ (not PHIL). They dont seem to have a problem yet with the bottom feeders.

    They picked up 3 games this last week.

    I'm looking forward to them coming to the Chi.

  • Don't mess with the SI jinx. Since the Javy/Cubs cover came out, he is 2-for-20 with no walks.

  • BRADSBEARD: If all three are assigned to Eugene, the Cubs can play Galindo, Paredes, and Paniagua at the same time by moving Paredes between SS-3B-DH, Galindo between 3B-1B-DH, and Paniagua between 1B-LF-DH. 

    The Cubs like to have their players (including their minor leaguers) learn to play more than one position even if they eventually are projected to settle at one spot, and I suspect that will be reflected at Eugene, with just about everybody who will be assigned there able to play at least two positions.

  • I don't think the error call was completely out of the blue but the ball took a very bad hop and would have taken a very good play to get it. Same with one of the Stella throws where I think it could have easily been ruled a hit. Neither were cut and dry calls though imo.
