Spring Training Battle Watch: March 10, 2010

Chicago Cubs News

Carlos Zambrano got smacked around, at least in one inning, and the Cubs fell to the Giants 5-1. Derrek Lee fouled a ball off his foot and had to leave the game, but there hasn’t been an indication (yet) that he suffered any kind of serious injury. On to the battles:


  • Sam Fuld, hoping to make the Cubs as a reserve outfielder, played center field and went hitless in two plate appearances.
  • Jeff Baker failed to put any distance between himself and Mike Fontenot in the battle to start at second base. Baker went o-3 with a walk.
  • A host of pitchers trying to make the bullpen (or the rotation, if possible) each threw a scoreless inning, including Rule Five pick Mike Parisi, Andrew Cashner, Thomas Diamond, John Gaub, and Justin Berg.
