Spring Training Miscellany: Lester Looking Good, Heyward’s Slo-Mo, Schwarber’s Shape, More

Chicago Cubs

Today was the final day of Spring Training before games begin, which is just lovely. The Cubs play the Brewers tomorrow, and if you’ve got MLB.tv (or have the Brewers’ cable channel), you’ll be able to watch.

As for camp today …

  • There’s not really anything of *significant* value that you’re going to be able to take away from a clip like that, even if it does kinda look like his timing and weight transfer are off, and like he’s leaning too much as he brings his hands back into his load, which would reduce his margin for error and ability to consistently barrel the ball, but I’m #NotAScout and like I said what can you really tell from this clip and I’m just gonna move on hastily.
  • Another slo-mo shot, this time of Kyle Schwarber:


  • Also, seriously:

Seriously. Schwarber is out here looking like a speedy center fielder. #Cubs
