That stressed area near Matt Garza's elbow gets scanned soon.

Some time soon, or maybe it's already happened, Matt Garza is going to get that stressed area on his pitching arm scanned.
It's just routine, this scan.
Part of a "regularly scheduled check-up", says ESPN.
No big deal or anything.
Except maybe a couple prospects or 3, depending on if Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer decide to trade him.
I'm sure the results will be fine.
There are good arguments on both sides about trading him or not, but since they already tried even I'm smart enough to figure he'll go when the right offer comes along.
Anyway, hope it all goes well.

  • 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.

  • @thekapman Marty Brennaman on trading Schwarber for Aroldis Chapman: "I would carry Schwarber on my back to NYC if I was getting Aroldis Chapman back."

  • The lineup 6-8 is looking a bit shaky.

  • 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).

    "in."

  • Joel Peralta was one of Maddon's bullpen guys in Tampa Bay.

  • Well there is no "You go, we go" without Fowler. The last week has showed how important he is to the Cubs.

    I imagine the Cubs getting back on track once we get some DL players back, but hopefully sooner rather than later.

  • I guess Joe and Jedstein did not much care for Concepcion's bases clearing double yesterday - he's on his way back to Iowa per twitterverse. No corresponding call up announced yet.
