Spring Training Miscellany: The First Full Workout, One Week to Games, Live BP, Happy Visuals

Chicago Cubs

We’ve got all these “NOW IT’S REAL” checkpoints when it comes to a new season, and while I can’t say that today’s is more of a thing than many of the others, I can say it’s the first one that has the full squad involved. Today was the first full team workout at Spring Training 2021, what with all players in camp (well, save for those still going through COVID-related protocols).

We are now just one week away from the Cubs’ first Spring Training game.

To my eye, Nico Hoerner looks thicker in the middle this year – like in a good, usable way:

Hoerner has actually always been pretty ripped up top, but that trunk is looking thick. Again, good and usable thick. Not trying to be a weirdo here. It matters for his power development!

Absolutely obligatory pitcher fielding practice:

Wait for it … wait for it … THAT SOUND:
