Spring Training Miscellany: Schwarber’s OF Focus, La Stella on Arrieta, Grandpa Rossy, More

Chicago Cubs

Kyle Schwarber was showing off his agility today, and that’ll hopefully translate to more quickness in the outfield this season. He tells Carrie Muskat that while he may work out with the catchers a couple times this spring, it’s only because he’s the emergency guy (confirming what he hinted at earlier in the week). Schwarber will be focusing on left field. Given how things have played out, it’s the right move, and I hope the improved athleticism and sole focus on left field can improve his defense out there.

  • Meanwhile, Tommy La Stella arrived at camp and was immediately asked about his good friend who’s no longer here, and also doesn’t yet have a job:


I’d watch that.

  • Elsewhere at Cubs camp today, when you’re winning Gold Gloves, you can store yours wherever you want:

  • “Yeah, but anyway, it’s great to see you, too, David. So where are we on that scone?”

  • Makes me want to take some hacks:

  • The @Cubs Instagram had a ton of fun little pics and clips today, so if you just can’t get enough, head over there and check it out.
