2014 CUBS MINOR LEAGUE CAMP ROSTERS (last updated 3-27-2014):
NOTE: All four of the Cubs full-season minor league affiliates (Iowa, Tennessee, Daytona, and Kane County) must get down to the 25-man Active Roster limit by Opening Day. There will be some downward roster movement this weekend, but most roster cuts at the very end of Minor League Camp are made by releasing players or placing injured players on the Disabled List. Almost all minor league clubs carry 13 pitchers and 12 position players. The Kane County squad will be split in half this weekend, with 25 players assigned to KC, and the remaining players either released, placed on the DL, or moved down to the Boise/Mesa squad (Extended Spring Training).

Coach Craig Driver tested positive for Coronavirus and was sent back to Chicago. Apparently, no other Cub tested positive. No word about symptoms so it sounds like it was picked up in whatever the regular testing protocol covers including Wed, Thursday and Friday which were negative for the "traveling party".

Sure makes it sound like Schwarber and Lester were among the positives. Hate that for them, especially Jon who has the cancer history and the recent thyroid issue. Hopefully both recover without significant lingering effects.

j.musgrove throws SD's first no-hitter. it would have been a perfect game if he didn't hit a batter.
not bad for his 2nd start for them.

Nats Covid update (wrt Former Cub factor): Brad Hand, Yan Gomes, Alex Avila and Jordy Mercer have all been cleared to return after being away due to COVID-19 protocols. Josh Bell, Kyle Schwarber, Jon Lester and Josh Harrison have not been cleared yet,
Still looking forward to seeing Schwarbs play in a Nats uniform.

Right. Three batter minimum. Hopefully the only time I'll need to be reminded this year.
Dolorous Jon Lester 1 day 20 hours ago (view)
I'd be good with either. The other can go when Rowan Wick is ready, as far as I'm concerned. Hope they keep Maples instead of one of those two.

Yeah, Winkler had to face a third batter (or intentionally walk him I guess) before Ross could pull him. Wondering how long before Shelby Miller takes over for Winkler or Workman...

k.rosenthal reporting that MLB has taken multiple baseballs from t.bauer's last start with "visible markings and were sticky."

Isn't the rule where the reliever must either finish an inning or face at least three batters still around? I know it was in effect last year but wasn't sure if that was a "2020 is a nonsense season, let's do whatever" rule or one they're sticking with

I am as befuddled as George A. Back to back four pitch walks and Ross thinks Winkler gets another batter?

d.ross and others around him are supposedly rather big on j.adam, fwiw...
wouldn't be shocked to see him around in cubs leading/tie/close middle relief.

I like this version Kimbrel. Seem apparent that he needs a normal spring training. Year 1, signs a free agent contract mid season, no so good. Year 2, Covid craziness, settles in 2nd half of the season. Year 3, pretty bad beginning of ST and settles in at beginning of the season.
