AZ Phil, I have been reading past international reviews and came upon a promising quote about Abraham Rodriguez from 2016. Rodriguez didn't play in 2017. Have you heard why? Also, have you noticed him this spring?

AZ Phil, I have been reading past international reviews and came upon a promising quote about Abraham Rodriguez from 2016. Rodriguez didn't play in 2017. Have you heard why? Also, have you noticed him this spring?

VIDEO: OF-1B Abraham Rodriguez is a "bat-first" guy (he is a train-wreck in the outfield) who consistently drills hard-contact line-drives foul-line-to-foul-line.

He missed the 2017 season after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum in his left (throwing) shoulder, but he is starting to get some lift in his swing and could become a very interesting hitting prospect later this season (probably in the AZL, but maybe at Eugene).

Hi AZ Phil,

Do you know what injury Erling Moreno is rehabbing from? Seemed like he was healthy early on in the spring based on your updates. Thank you!

RAISIN: I don't know what Moreno's injury is. While he's on the Myrtle Beach DL, he's not in the "Rehab Throwing Program" and he throws bullpen side-sessions, but at the same time he hasn't pitched in any games yet. Stay tuned for further info. 

Phil, has Coghlan left camp?

HAGSAG: I don't know where Chris Coghlan is at this time, but he has not been on the field in Mesa for almost two weeks. It's possible that he has an injury that precludes him from taking the field even for limited activities, or maybe he returned home to contemplate his future, or he might have physically joined the Iowa Cubs sometime over the past couple of weeks but has not yet been activated.

    And Joe pinch hits for Descalso again today - now 205/277/316 on the year. But no need to put a jumpy-jump in the parking lot during spring training like they did last year for TLS so it balances out.

    tommy lastella hit his 12th homer of the year...grand slam.

    Not sure why any of the teams would only have enough talent for one XSL game.

    RIP heyward's bat.

    shout out to bo jackson...that was a clean break.

    it was a swing/miss with no contact so it's doubtful it was a cracked bat.

    Bullpen reclamation project Kyle Ryan’s ERA now 5.06. Bummer

    wow baez...also, wow rizzo.

    call overturned, but that was a hell of an "almost" play.

    he's thrown so little of his other stuff lately that i can't even guess and sure don't know.

    he's always been fastball-heavy, but it's almost exclusively fastball now.

    he gets movement on a 95-97mph fastball...that's a positive about it if he's gonna continously offer it up.

    Control problems?

    schwarber / baez / rizzo / contreras / heyward / almora / descalso / lester / bote

    i guess we're in for 2-20 random games of "pitcher hits 8th" before suddenly deciding that's not a thing anymore...again

    it had to feel good for him to get that standing O at the home ballpark.

    he's still throwing almost nothing but fastballs exclusively, though...wonder what's up with that.
