- Lilly missed practice on Thursday with a very high fever.
- Gray is expect to pitch next week sometime.
- The Cubs are looking for a backup shortstop and are going to give Fonty a shot until March 15th but if he cannot handle it then Blanco will get the nod. Levine also mentioned that Castro will likely start in AA or AAA.
- Soriano said his knee feels great and had excellent results over the past two days.
- Samardzija is throwing the ball well says Larry Rothchild. I still expect him to start in AAA.
- Guzman is shut down for a couple days just to be safe. He will also recieve a MRI but all roads point to him being ready for Opening Day.
- The Cubs are still looking for a veteran pitcher but Caridad has been told he basically has one of the spots in the pen.
- It is likely Carlos Zambrano will be the Opening Day starter.
Until Next Time....
