The righty wasn’t expected to make the pen, since he could be freely optioned.
Month: March 2013
He could miss as much as the first half of the season.
Today’s game is on MLB.tv and WGN Radio, though you can catch a replay on MLBN tomorrow morning.
One of the Cubs’ most tenured players turns 23 today. Scott Baker gets evaluated, Casey Coleman gets bummed, and David Haugh gets argumentative.
The Cubs came back today, and have climbed back to .500 on the Spring.
Double WGN for your pleasure: television and radio today.
The 33-year-old starter is set to now be a free agent, and looks like he might actually be able to contribute this year, but would either side see a fit?
It must be the end of Spring Training, because the narrative is getting crazy.
Carlos Villanueva takes down Yovani Gallardo. That’s swell.
