neifi perez jr scratched with left bicep tightness...supposedly not serious. we need neifi perez jr and middle-IF jason heyward healthy going into the season so hopefully it turns out not serious.

CUBSTER: Derniche Valdez is not in Mesa (yet). He could get invited to Extended Spring Training (we'll see).
If the Cubs play it like they did with Cristian Hernandez, Adan Sanchez, and Jefferson Rojas, D. Valdez will be playing in the DSL in 2023 and won't see Mesa until post-2023 AZ Instructs.

Has anyone watched newly signed this January, SS prospect Derniche Valdez? Thoughts? Some recent love via a Jordan Bastian (MLB.com) article that linked their Rankings of all 30 clubs by Callis, Mayo and Dykstra. They ranked him 19th in the Cub system. Highly touted Cristian Hernandez ranked 10th but their writeup on Valdez "whispered" Starlin Castro-Hanley Ramirez comps (albeit for a 16 yr old).

MLB is expected to "make tweaks" to the recent rule changes...no idea what tweaks and which areas...

childersb3: Ryan Jensen looks about the same as he did in MLB Camp. He still has trouble commanding his stuff and throwing strikes, but minor league hitters are more likely to chase pitches out of the strike zone than big leaguers.
