This is only news in the strictest sense, since we knew these renewals were all coming. But, hey, you can learn a bit more about the process.
Alberto Cabrera gets the start today for the Cubs. Maybe he can be the Cubs’ suddenly all-important sixth starter.
The former Cubs pitching prospect isn’t doing so hot in Spring Training, but the Diamondbacks seem to like what they see. Still, they’re pitching-heavy already.
Something is strange about Matt Garza’s lat injury, but, regardless of that, the injury comes with a number of transactional implications.
With Matt Garza out, this was academic.
The Cubs split their split squad games today.
Two games for the price of one, and tons of prospects in action today. And you can actually watch one of the games! (Tomorrow morning.)
Garza could miss as much as the first month of the season with lingering lat tightness.
Dale Sveum calls opening week a “longshot” for Garza. Also, a Cubs Bunt Tourney update! Oh mercy!
You can beat the World Champs only so many times (in Spring Training).
He’s going to miss a week rather than just a few days. It’s all still being termed as precautionary, though.
It’s Spring Game number eight for the Cubs, who’ll head to Scottsdale to take on the Giants.
