That stressed area near Matt Garza's elbow gets scanned soon.

Some time soon, or maybe it's already happened, Matt Garza is going to get that stressed area on his pitching arm scanned.
It's just routine, this scan.
Part of a "regularly scheduled check-up", says .
No big deal or anything.
Except maybe a couple prospects or 3, depending on if Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer decide to trade him.
I'm sure the results will be fine.
There are good arguments on both sides about trading him or not, but since they already tried even I'm smart enough to figure he'll go when the right offer comes along.
Anyway, hope it all goes well.

    ha.  also, this reminds me that Grand Slam cereal existed in the late 90s.  it was basically Kix with the marshmallows from Lucky Charms (in baseball items shape).  it was actually really good.

    Yeah, both of those guys have some versatility. Could make a nice platoon if it ever came to that.

    Rooting for General Mills?

    I like that they're trying Robel and Giambrone all over the diamond.

    I'll just be here salivating over the possibility of observing a sub-70MPH curve ball. :)

    Rooting for Mills in general. Seems like fun as a 5th starter.

    Love those breakdowns Phil - thank you!

    People tweeted about watching the Cubs game live here yesterday: http://yoursports.stream/mlb?v=MTQ5NzY2MDMw Might work for anyone on here who can't seem to get the game today.

    i forgot about these types of update posts...thanks for the breakdowns.  they're really useful.

    strong agreement on the mess t.olson was throwing.  he didn't even look happy with himself out there.

    I know most of you saw the game or will be seeing the game, but for anyone else who might be interested, here are the Cubs pitchers velo readings from Saturday night's game: 

    Alec Mills: 
    FB: 90-92 
    CH: 82-83 
    SL: 80-81 
    CV: 68 
    NOTES: Nice mix of pitches... Mills obviously comes from the "I'm a pitcher not a thrower" school, all of which means command & control matters a lot and he had both tonight... a legit candidate for the Cubs #5 SP slot...

    hell of a 1st game.  even the good and bad mean nothing this early in spring, but it was a nice one.  i'm not worried about rizzo misplaying a couple balls in the first innings, nor do i think bote is on his way to a batting title.  spring is meaningless enough without trying to read into february spring games.  it was a fun watch, though.

    my biggest regret is not seeing souza chase down any plays in LF while he was in the game.  that's something i really would like to see this early in spring.

    I also hope they edit it for the season. doesn't list pitcher or hitter or pitches thrown.
