Jed Hoyer says Garza is likely to be delayed by the injury, even if the team is hopeful it’s not a big deal.
He joins a crowded outfield in Arizona, and we wish him well.
It’s sad for a variety of reasons, but the Cubs have to confront the new financial reality of Major League Baseball.
Darwin Barney didn’t win the Gold Glove. Brandon Phillips lost it. And he only lost it because he’s too flashy for the managers to handle.
A ton happened over the weekend, so if you’re just now getting back into the Cubs’ world, here’s what you’ll want to check.

No additional night games this year, though, and probably no new ad signage, either.

Is he still going to be traded? Will he open the season with the Cubs and then be shopped at the deadline?
MLB Network will be carrying an additional live game, plus seven rebroadcast games.
The constant readjustment of the body clock is a problem for players, according to Sveum. He’d like to see more consistency.
Sounds like Scott Baker will start the year on the DL, though.
And he doesn’t appear willing to support any of the Cubs’ efforts until that comprehensive plan is in place. It’s never that simple.
He can play all over the field, and Dale Sveum helped recruit the non-roster invitee.
