  • Luke checked in on the minor league affiliates.
  • I wondered how Hector Rondon’s role might change in the wake of him being pulled from the 9th the day before.
  • Luke looked at the latest mock draft from Baseball America.
  • Chris Denorfia returned for the second time from a hamstring injury. Hopefully he’s back for good this time, because the bench could use him.

  • The Cubs beat the Nationals again, locking up a 3-1 series win. Nicely done.
  • Ugh. Javy Baez broke a finger. No good way to share that news.
  • I closed out the weekend with a handful of random draft rumor bits, and an open thread. BECAUSE THE DRAFT STARTS TODAY!
