A top international prospect to whom the Cubs had been very closely connected is now, instead, connected to the Dodgers.
MLB News and Rumors
There’s interest in Castillo out there, but now’s not the time that teams typically make deals.
I’m sure I’m being a little homer-y, but Anthony Rizzo 53rd? Seriously?
There *will* be over-the-air Cubs games downstate, and more deals are likely coming. Plus a big update on the Cubs’ long-term TV deal plans.
The Cardinals’ ace has an abdominal strain that will delay his Spring Training debut.
The Cubs could look to pick up a great deal of amateur talent in the coming months.
Adam Wainwright’s abdominal injury is not serious. I know. You’re uncomfortably bummed about that.
The move probably makes the Brewers slightly better in 2015, though Rodriguez is coming off of a mixed season.
Would you support shrinking the MLB regular season to 154 games?
Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro really wants to be traded, which can’t be helping the Cubs with respect to his former teammate, Welington Castillo.
You didn’t really think he’d wait until July for the Cubs, did you? (Winky face.) (Slightly bummed face.)
Are we missing out on a problem with groundball pitchers? Will Adam Wainwright break down? Plus so much else.
Moncada and Hamels remain popular names. Zimmermann might cut off extension talks, Beachy signs with the Dodgers, more.
Although these are some of the least controversial changes MLB could have gone for, it’s a start, and could have a solid impact.
The Diamondbacks just inked a long-term TV that significantly increases their revenue, which is of obvious interest to the Cubs.
It’s still unknown if and when the Cubs will do a little Spring cleaning. Also, the latest on the big Cuban names, and much more.
