Luis Stars with Bat and Zapata Leads with Arm at Salt River Fields

Jansel Luis hammered two RBI doubles and scored two runs, Ricardo Caldera tripled, walked and scored two runs, and SP Deyer Zapata fired four innings of one-hit shutout ball, helping the Diamondbacks Black squad defeat the Cubs 6-4 in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played Monday morning on Whirlwind Field at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick (located in the Salt River Maricopa-Pima Indian Community, east of Scottsdale, AZ).  

Ed Howard reached base four times (singled in the 1st, walked in the 3rd, singled again in the 5th, and laced an oppo-field RBI double into the RF corner in the 7th), Ismael Mena singled, doubled, and scored two runs, Adan Sanchez drilled two singles (including a line-drive two-run single in the 5th that put the Cubs up 2-1) and threw out two baserunners attempting to steal, and SP Eligio Paredes hurled three innings of one hit / one run ball (run was unearned) for the Cubs.  

In 13 Cactus League EXST games (33 PA), Ed Howard is now hitting 404/515/704 (1.219 OPS - 300 ISO).

RHP Daniel Palencia stepped out of the pitch lab long enough to accompany the team to Salt River Fields and throw a quick 1-2-3 inning (P-6, L-8, and a K-looking) that took about three minutes and featured four 100 MPH FB. 

Here is the abridged box score from the game (Cubs players only):

PHIL: How does Sanchez look behind the plate receiving? Any thoughts (or overheard comments) on his likelihood of staying at catcher?

 

Thanks!

    suzuki says he injured his oblique running to 1st, not swinging.  okay.  it's gonna be that kind of 2024 cubs year, huh?

    i would say that's good news compared to screwing it up swinging, but i'm not familiar with the recovery time of people screwing up their oblique by running.

    right side is at least different from his left side oblique injury last year.

    A bit more Jewish take on one of my favorite Cubs, Kenny Holtzman. His 9-0 season while serving in the National Guard and being available to pitch on weekends was one of my coolest teen recollections.

    Suzuki out with oblique strain. Canario indeed is called up. No word on Morel so that might be a red herring (or a red digit).

    AZ lineup is posted but Counsell is always late to post his lineup.

    Best hitter: IL with oblique strain

    Second best hitter: hasn’t looked the same since jamming his right hand during a swing

    Third best hitter: playing through a sore hammy

    Best pitcher: IL after one start 

    Second best RP: IL after 1.5 weeks

    suzuki 10d IL.

    right oblique strain.  ow.  that's generally more than a 10d thing.

    cooper and morel are on the field doing pre-game stuff so it's not them...

    I'll always remember his 3-0 No-hitter against the Braves when Aaron's HR was blown back into the LF well and BIlly Williams made the catch with his back against the ivy.
