Cub Bats Not Named Carico Go Quietly Into the Night

Jairo Pomares (two RBI doubles), Brandon Martorano (two RBI singles), and Dario Reynoso (RBI single) collected run-scoring hits, as the Giants defeated the Cubs 5-1 in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played Tuesday evening at the Giants Papago Park Complex in Phoenix, AZ.

Michael Carico drilled a line-drive solo HR over the RF fence to account for the lone Cub run. 

The game was called by mutual agreement after seven innings of play. 

In EXST Cubs roster news, C-INF Miguel Pabon (oblique strain) completed his rehab and has been moved-up to Hi-A Myrtle Beach from Extended Spring Training, and C (ex-INF) Carter Trice was moved down to Extended Spring Training from Myrtle Beach.

    Phil with an absolute dagger to the heart here !!
    All Perlaza did was hit and hit at every level. Switch hitter and performed equally well from either side. He produced good results. Just like Assad did at every level.
    Jed didn't think he was worthy of the 40man.
    I get keeping Canario over Perlaza (but Canario is never going to play for Jed)
    I get keeping B. Davis in order to save some value there after his injuries (but he'll never play for the Jed)
    Jed had to add Alcantara. Just can't let him walk in the Rule5.
    But Perlaza not being on the 40man in order to use him as a DH is just nuts to me.
    He's younger than Mervis. And statistically just as good if not better than Mervis. Probably has more bat speed from both sides of the plate. Why didn't Perlaza get a chance?

    Phil, did Perlaza sign a 1yr deal in the KBO? Can he's contract be purchased by a MLB club right now? I'm sure that's not possible, but I wanted to ask.

    Former Cubs minor league OF Yonathan Perlaza is hitting 327/405/624 with 15 HR and 15 doubles in 51 games for Hanwha in the KBO. He leads the league in SLG, is tied for lead in HR, is 2nd in OPS, and is tied for 4th in doubles. He was a minor league 6YFA post-2023 but the Cubs chose not to select him to the MLB 40-man roster and he declined to sign a 2024 minor league successor contract.

    I know they’re managing innings especially for Brown, but I feel like if we’re rolling out our top 5 SP, it includes Assad and Brown, and Wicks would be in Iowa. Wicks is solid and I think will continue to be, but Brown has been awesome and Assad has been our second best SP this year.

    110%...unlike the decision to put in t.miller to protect a 4 run lead with 1 on and get the last out of the game.

    this is the most over-managed thing i've seen of counsell with the cubs.

    Seemed like the right decision from my vantage! 😂

    What is this whole clutch hit/score multiple runs thing the Cubs are doing? They can do that? And it’s legal? Nice!

  • crunch (view)

    this game got really f'n good.

  • crunch (view)

    scoring from 2nd on a 60ft hit...a hit off the pitcher's elbow...ow.

    megill walking off the mound towards where the ball was rolling was a poor decision even if he was nope'ing himself out of the game to the dugout.

    Vazquez with the heads up running - Cubs could could steal this one back.

    Is Adames going to steal the Cubs soul two days in a row? Yep
