The Cubs got encouraging reports about right-hander Arodys Vizcaino, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery in March 2012. Vizcaino made about six appearances in the Dominican instructional league, his fastball hit 98 mph and he showed good command. The pitcher, acquired from the Braves in July 2012, could be in the Cubs’ bullpen mix in 2014.

That is a development. Not that he could fully 'man' a closer role, but he could be a helleva fireman in the late innings along with a bullpen that is about being the best shutdown in MLB, that I think is part of the 2014 plan, it would do much to soothing many in the peanut seats.

But that is really awesome to hear.  Getting a healthy Vizcaino out of Maholm would be amazing.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
