Cubs Wallop Four Homers & Sweep Angels in Mesa

Isaac Paredes hammered a solo home run, Kevonte Mitchell blasted a two-run HR, and Robert Garcia (two-run single), Yeiler Peguero (RBI double), and Marcus Mastrobuoni (RBI double) contributed run-scoring hits, leading the Cubs to a 7-2 victory over the Angels at Sloan Park, and Jose Paniagua slugged a two-run HR, Tyler Pearson smacked a solo HR, and Jesus Castillo and three relievers combined to hurl a three-hit shutout, helping the Cubs blank the Angels 3-0 on Field #1 at the Riverview Baseball Complex, in Cactus League Extended Spring Training split-squad doubleheader action this morning in Mesa, AZ.   

Jabari Henry belted a solo HR in a losing cause for the Angels at Sloan Park.

The game at the Riverview Baseball Complex was pre-planned as a seven-inning affair, and the game at Sloan Park was called after seven innings of play.

In EXST Cubs roster news, RHSP Duane Underwood and 1B-OF Kelly Dugan have been moved-up to AA Tennessee.

Underwood was left behind at Extended Spring Training while rehabbing from what was described as a "elbow stiffness" that kept him from throwing in Spring Training games.

Duane Underwood's combined Cactus League EXST line (two GS):  
10.1 IP, 10 H, 3 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 8 K, 1 HBP, 1 WP, 1 GIDP, 8/11 GO/AO, 140 pitches (67% strikes) 
2.61 ERA 
1.06 WHIP 
.270 OppBA

Dugan hit 385/640/538 in seven Cactus League Extended Spring Training games (25 PA), and set a Cactus League EXST record when he drew five walks in five Plate Appearances in a game versus the Giants in Scottsdale last Monday. Dugan drew ten walks in just 25 PA. 

Kelly Dugan is 
the son of actor (Hill Street Blues) and film director (Happy Gilmore) Dennis Dugan. I had the pleasure of meeting Dennis at a Minor League Spring Training game last month, and he's a real nice guy, and a big-time baseball fan.

So where does Warren G rank in the list of terrible "Take me out to the ballgame" renditions? It's gotta be near the top.

    Players on the 40 can be recalled and be placed on the MLB Taxi Squad for one day, like for example if a club is unsure if a player might or might not be placed on the IL ("game time decision"). Like maybe Happ, for example. 

    Also, a player on the MLB Taxi Squad must be returned to his optional assignment the next day if he is not officially recalled to the 26-man roster. 

    The player is NOT paid at the MLB split rate and does NOT accrue MLB Service Time while he is on the Taxi Squad. Also, it is not considered to be an official recall / option back if he is not added to the 26-man roster. 

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    Wesneski has not spent 15 days on optional assignment since he was optioned so he cannot be recalled unless he is replacing a player being placed on the IL or other MLB inactive list (Paternity, Bereavement / Family Medical, et al), a player who is traded, or a player who is claimed off waivers.

    excited to see more power in the lineup.

    HOU going with 3 righty starters vs the cubs and their only lefty pen arm is hader.

    unless busch has a mystery injury, we should see busch+mervis working all 3 games.

    More than 50 years ago (I'm old), I was in the audience when my HS choir performed the whole thing. (It was a really elite choir and director.) That was my first exposure to the piece. You're right, Sonicwind75, there is a lot more to it than "O Fortuna," just like there's a lot more to Beethoven's Ninth than the Ode to Joy, etc. Much if it, as you say, is bawdy: "O! O! Totus florio! Iam amori virginali, totus ardeo!" Basically, "I'm really horny for these virgins!" And the guys in the choir adopted the "Skoal"- type greeting from the tavern scene: "Wafna!"

    i would have pause if the cubs had a pitching squeeze.   as it is, they have more guys than they have roster.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Maybe Brewer

    He'd be able to leave the Cubs. He's out of options. That would open up a 40man spot.

    I don't think Jed would do that.

  • crunch (view)

    brewer has done nothing to keep him on the big league roster...imagine that's 1 guy gone.

    yeah, it's only 2 appearances, but they were both unimpressive.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Yeah it is.....sorry......closers don't throw 89mph

    It would be unique for sure.

    But CP can't be HR susceptible

    That's what Alzolay has right now and that's what Kyle has no matter the situation.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Supposedly Happ said on a radio show he's good to go

    I hadn't read that anywhere from the usual accounts, so this could be off.

    If true, Canario goes down.

  • TarzanJoeWallis (view)

    Hmmm. Maybe my idea of transitioning Hendricks into a closer role isn’t so crazy.
