2014 Cubs Minor League Camp Rosters
Dillon Maples, Jen-Ho Tseng, Felix Pena, and Ivan Pineyro threw "live" BP this morning, as Cubs minor leaguers had their first full-squad work-out at the Under Armour Performance Center at Riverview Park in Mesa, AZ.
2014 CUBS MINOR LEAGUE CAMP ROSTERS (last updated 3-6-2014):
These are the four squads that were actually ON THE FIELD at Minor League Camp today.
However, about 20 players under club control who I would have expected to be at Minor League Camp were not on the field, but most of the MIA are international players, so visa issues may be the reason some of them are absent. I do know that OF Kevin Encarnacion is rehabbing from serious injuries (burns & shoulder injury) sustained in a car crash in the Dominican Republic this past off-season. Encarnacion was reportedly pulled from the wreck just seconds before the vehicle exploded. Also, INF Elliot Soto is on the Restricted List while serving a 50-game "Drug of Abuse" suspension, and he will not be eligible to be reinstated until late May (although players serving drug & substance suspensions are permitted to participate in Spring Training and Extended Spring Training at the discretion of the club).
NOTE: ROSTERS AT MINOR LEAGUE CAMP ARE FLUID. Minor League players are often initially assigned to a squad one or even two levels above where they will ultimately be assigned once the regular season starts. Minor League Camp roster assignments are based on several factors, including the player's position as it relates to the specific needs of the organization, and the player's age, amount of professional experience, and previous season's performance (including any time spent at a post-season Instructional League). As players are sent to Minor League Camp from the Major League squad during the course of Spring Training, there are corresponding roster moves made at Minor League Camp as players are either moved down a level or released.

BOISE/MESA (EXTENDED SPRING TRAINING)
NOTE: The Boise/Mesa (Extended Spring Training) squad will form the week of March 10th, consisting of players who will be left behind in Arizona to provide a replacement cadre in case of an injury to a player at Kane County, Daytona, Tennessee, and/or Iowa during the first two months of the season, inexperienced players who are competing for jobs with one of the "Short Season" teams that begin league play in June, and players (both MLB and minor league) getting into playing shape and/or rehabbing from an injury.
Rosenthal does it again! Comes in with a 3-1 lead in the 9th -- double, BB, HR...ballgame.
Very nice win last nice -- could have caved in after the bottom of the first. It would be OK if guys stopped getting hurt, and if SF would lose a few.
Awesome. It wasn't long ago that he was kind of the best prospect coming through the system.
Javy's grunge dive into the stands for the popup was awesome - the hitting into the double play not so much
Third time I've tried to post this (forgive me if it winds up appearing three times)
Junior Lake, batting 9th and playing RF for the Blue Jays...
*That was a fun HALF inning.
this game is no longer awesome.
he did...it was awesome.
I'm pretty sure that Len called Bryant's home run a Brexit.
everyone but heyward with a hit and a 3 run lead with coghlan on 3rd through 5 batters. hell yeah.
okay, this is just silly. 19 pitches in, 1 out, 4 runs in, men on 1st and 2nd...hendricks up to bunt.
...and almora contributes the final out. that was a fun inning.
this game is awesome already.
also, there's a lot of cubs fans in the park tonight.
Clearly, Joe Maddon is a Lineup Wizzard.
"Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is feeling better and it's "possible" the first baseman could return to the lineup Saturday."
Maddon shore isn't afraid to bat a rookie 4th in the order.
how many pairs of dice did dusty leave hidden around the park when he left the cubs?
Line-up shakeup, going all-2015 with pitcher batting 8th, Bryant 2nd
J-Hey, Bryant 1B, Zobrist, Willson, Coghlan, Baez 3B, Russell, Hendricks, Almora
