In Cubs EXST news, OF Cole Roederer (July 2021 TJS) has completed his Mesa rehab assignment and has been temporarily assigned to Lo-A Myrtle Beach. He will be moved up to Hi-A South Bend once the weather warms up. Also, 1B-OF Felix Stevens (on the Myrtle Beach 7-day IL since April 15th) has reported to Mesa for a rehab assignment.

Roederer Unloads Again at Sloan Park

Cole Roederer clobbered a solo HR, Jake Slaughter laced a double and a single, drew a walk, stole a base, and scored a run, and SP Marino Santy hurled three innings of one-run ball and combined with six relievers on a one-hitter, as the Cubs defeated the Athletics 4-1 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Friday morning at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ. 

Roederer's bomb was his second in two days, and this one landed half-way up the right-centerfield berm.    

Three more Cubs pitchers who spent the 2021 season in the DSL made their stateside game debut in the game. 

The A's lone hit was an Jose Escorche double that led-off the game. Escorche then took third on an F-8 and scored on a 5-3 GO. The only other baserunner reached via a walk with one out in the 7th inning, and that runner was erased on a spectacular inning ending 6-4-3 DP started by SS Josue Huma, who made a no look / back-flip to 2nd basseman Carlos Sepuveda, who then completed the turn with a solid throw to 1st base.   

Although they only fanned four, Cubs pitchers collectively recorded 16 ground ball outs in the game. 

Marino Santy was dominiant in his three innings, allowing just the one hit and the one run, while issuing no walks and striking out three. The little lefty has a true starting pitcher's repertoire, featuring a 93-96 MPH FB, an 84-85 MPH CH, and a 78-81 MPH CV that he mixes with good effect.

Not counting pitchers at EXST for rehab & conditioning, Santy is the Cubs top LHSP prospect at EXST. He and RHSP Michael Arias should provide the ACL Cubs with a formidable 1-2 SP punch once the ACL season starts in June. Santy and Arias were two of the four DSL Cubs pitchers who were brought up to Minor League Camp in March and made their stateside debuts in Minor League Spring Training games prior to the start of EXST (the other two were RHPs Kenyi Perez and Joel Sierra, and like Santy and Arias, K. Perez is being primed to be a SP).

Game at Sloan Park Was Strictly for the Byrds

Grayson Byrd went 3-3 with two singles and a solo HR and scored two runs, Cole Roederer belted a solo HR, amf SP Jack Petterson and six relievers combined to toss a two-hitter, as the Cubs defeated the Diamondbacks Red squad 4-1 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training game action Thursday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ. 

Roederer's HR was hammered high & deep down the RF line and landed in the D'backs bullpen, and Byrd's moonshot hit the Hornitos Party Tent above & beyond the RF berm. 

This was Patterson's first game action since undergoing TJS a year ago, working 2.1 IP and throwing 27 pitches (only 14 strikes). He didn't allow any hits, struck out three (one swinging, two looking), and issued two walks. He also induced a "room service" inning-ending 6-4-3 GIDP in the top of the 1st. Patterson's stuff was just OK (not great) -- FB: 89-92, CH: 82-84, and CV: 79-81. He wasn't particularly sharp, but under the circumstances that's probably understandale.   

Five of the relievers who threw for the Cubs pitched in the DSL last season and were making their stateside game debut.

The game was called after six innings of play. 

Cole Roederer collected two singles for the Cubs.

Cubs Win Walk-a-thon at Tempe Diablo

Cristian Hernandez belted a two-run inside-the-park HR and walked twice, Andrelton Simmons doubled, singled, and scored two runs, Moises Ballesteros singled, doubled, and drove-in a run with a SF, Cole Roederer walked in all three of his plate appearances and scored two runs, and the offense took full advantage of 13 walks, a HBP, six wild pitches, and a balk, helping the Cubs outlast the Angels 10-9 in Cactus League Extended Spring Training Opening Day game action Thursday morning on Field #3 at the Diablo Stadium Complex in Tempe, AZ. 

The Angels drew ten walks and Jorge Ruiz (RBI single), Denzer Guzman (RBI double), David Calabrese (RBI double), Nelson Rada (two-run double), and William Rivera (RBI single) stroked run-scoring hits in a losing cause.
