hohokam-park-signIt’s the first split squad game for the Cubs on the Spring (split squad, for the¬†uninitiated, means what it sounds like it means – the Cubs divide things up, and take on two teams on the same day), and it comes with a bonus: lots of prospects will be playing for the Cubs today. At last check, in addition to the guys in big league camp, we could also see Albert Almora, Dan Vogebach, Trey Martin, Stephen Bruno, and Zeke DeVoss in action. We haven’t yet hear which prospects will be at which game, except for Almora, who says he’ll be playing in the Angels game. I’ll be at a funeral most of the day today, so I likely won’t be able to update this to reflect where each prospect will be playing. If you see word on this, please add it to the comments.

Double bonus: the game against the Angels is going to be televised! … tomorrow morning on tape delay on MLB Network (8:30am CT). But if you’ve got MLB.tv, you can watch live.

1. Luis Valbuena, 3B

2. Darwin Barney, 2B

3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B

4. Alfonso Soriano, DH

    I’d much rather watch the Brewers game than the Angels game, but oh well. A Cubs game is a Cubs game is a Cubs game.

  • Justen

    Carrie Muskat tweeted a couple of hours ago that Vogelbach will ..be staying in Mesa to play the Brewers

    • Patrick G

      I also saw last night Almora tweeted he will be playing in the Angels game

  • TheDynastyStartsIn2016

    Has Soler been put in exile? Haven’t seen him for a while.

  • COW142

    If you have DirecTv with the sports pak the game is live on 692.

  • TonyP

    Just bought MLBTV, come on 2:00

    • TonyP

      Wish the Brewers game was on, instead of the Angels though…

    • Patrick G

      How do you like it?

    Here is an article about Svuem teasing a minor leaguer about his eating habits on ESPN.

    Why did we not put Garza on the DL earlier and save Campana a spot?

    • waittilthisyear

      dl stint will take you off the active 25 man, but he would remain on the 40, thus not clearing a spot.

      even had that not been the case, i am assuming the cubs did not want/expect to have to dl garza.

      even if they did, no more campana

  • Nick Nesler

    Finally, a cubs game to watch. I’m sick of the yankees and phillies everyday. MLB network is pissing me off.

  • Justen

    Almora and Soler are both in now in the Angels game.
