Cubs vs. Mariners: Series Thread (Games 9-11)

The Cubs took two out of three from the Rangers to even their record at 4-4. They'll next greet the 4-6 Seattle Mariners for a three, game set at Wrigley. They'll have a day off on Thursday before embarking on a trip to the West Coast to face the Dodgers and the Athletics. See below for the daily matchups.

Adan Sanchez and Raino Coran Rock & Roll at Riverview

Adan Sanchez drilled a two-run double in the 1st inning, singled in the 3rd, and ripped a game tying two-run double with two outs in the bottom of the 5th, and then Raino Coran followed the Sanchez game-tying two-run double with a game-winning walk-off two run HR onto the south bank of the Loop 202 freeway, as the EXST Cubs Red squad blew a 4-1 lead in the top of the 5th only to rally for four runs in the bottom of the 5th and defeat the EXST Cubs Blue squad 8-6 in Extended Spring Training intrasquad game action Saturday morning on Field #6 at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.&nbs

Kyle Hendricks Goes "Live" at Extended Spring Training

It wasn't a conventional game or even a "sim" game, but Kyle Hendricks faced hitters for the first time since last July. 

The "live" BP took place Friday morning on Field #6 at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.

As is usually the case with "live" BP, an actual umpire was hired by the Cubs to call balls & strikes.  

Hendricks faced three batters -- Raino Coran, Wally Soto, and Brayan Altuve -- and each of them batted twice. They did not run the bases and there were no fielders. 

Cubs vs Rangers: Series Thread (Games 6-8)

Following a rainout and a scheduled off-day, the Cubs rollover their rotation and return to Wrigley. There, they'll greet the 4-2 Rangers. See below for daily matchups.

CHC: RHP Marcus Stroman (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

TEX: RHP Nathan Eovaldi (1-0, 5.40 ERA)

Stroman braved a cold opening day at Wrigley and walked away with a win, 8 strikeouts, and a bunch of outs on the ground over 6 innings.

Seiya Suzuki Thrashes a Brandon Hughes Offering at Sloan Park

Seiya Suzuki blasted a solo HR (off Brandon Hughes) over the LF bullpen and onto the berm, Ismael Mena drilled an RBI triple (also off Brandon Hughes), Yidel Diaz belted a two-run double, and SP Jackson Ferris hurled three innings of no run / no hit ball with four strikeouts (three swinging), in an Extended Spring Training intrasquad game played at Sloan Park Wednesday morning. 

The game ended in a 3-3 tie.  

Seiya is the DH, but Raino Brings the Lumber

Raino Coran slugged a two-run HR in the 1st inning, doubled in the 4th, and singled and scored in the 6th, Ismael Mena smacked a two-run triple and scored a run in the 6th, and SP Daniel Palencia hurled three innings of shutout ball, leading the EXST Cubs Blue Squad to a 7-5 victory over the EXST Cubs Red Squad, in Extended Spring Training intrasquad game action Tuesday morning on Field #6 at the Riverview Baseball Complex in Mesa, AZ.   

Seiya Suzuki Makes 2023 Game Debut at Extended Spring Training

Cubs @ Reds: Series Thread (Games 4-6)

The Cubs opened the 2023 regular season with a win before dropping the next two home games in a competitive series with the Milwaukee Brewers. Dansby Swanson put an uneventful Spring Training behind him, going 7-11. Ian Happ also had a hot series, reaching base 7 times and tallying the first Cubs homerun of the season. Patrick Wisdom's 2 homeruns in the Sunday loss made up most of the rest of the Cubs' offense. Cody Bellinger is still in search of his first knock as a Cub. The squad will move on to their first road series against another NL Central opponent, the Cincinnati Reds.

    I hope that Perlaza goes on to have a successful career.  On most Cubs teams prior to the current administration, he would have been one of their more highly ranked prospects.  As far as the others are concerned, one or more may well go on to be much better than expected, but unfortunately there is no way to tell which one at the present time.  You can't keep everyone.

    Another one of the nine Cubs post-2023 Rule 9 minor league 6YFA has signed, as RHP Carlos Guzman (acquired from the Tigers for Zack McKinstry at the end of Spring Training) signed a 2024 minor league contract with the Mets. 


    So RHRP Yovanny Cruz (SD), C-INF P. J. Higgins (CIN), and now Carlos Guzman (NYM) have already signed 2024 minor league contracts with new MLB organizations, and OF Yonathan Perlaza is headed for Korea (Hanhwa Eagles).
