It was reported the other day that Javier Baez would begin the 2013 season down at Low A in Kane County. However, the rosters announced yesterday have him, and Jorge Soler, in Daytona. Below is the roster for the Daytona Cubs.
RHP Yeiper Castillo: The 24 year old signed out of Venezuela never played above High A with the Red Sox and that's where he'll start 2013.
RHP Zach Cates: the 23 year old returns to Daytona. He was acquired along with Anthony Rizzo for Andrew Cashner and struggled in his first season in the Cubs organization.
LHP Frank Del Valle: 23 year old Cuban also has yet to pitch above High A.
RHP Eduardo Figueroa: like the others so far, Figueroa is quite old for the level (24) and has yet to pitch above High A.
RHP P.J. Francescon: 40th round pick in 2011, turned 24 in January. He's been good so far, but his age makes it difficult to know whether or not that's real.
LHP Austin Kirk: He was highly thought of before the 2009 draft and the Cubs t...

The Chicago Cubs get to pick second this June in the MLB Rule 4 Draft as part of their “reward” for sucking so much last season. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I guess) they were unable to suck as much as the Astros so they might lose out on the overall best player available, unless the Astros decide to implement their Carlos Correa plan again. Not that Correa was a terrible...
Apparently licking your fingers is the appropriate response to giving up runs in the bottom of the 9th.
Since it’s going to happen pretty much every night, we’ll continue to highlight the ****** relief performance of the night. (I think we need a name for it). Tonight’s winner was Carlos Marmol. Yes, yes. He did actually record a save. But check out the stat line...

Chicago's starting rotation looks improved thus far, helping the Cubs to their first series win to start a season in four years. But the true test of improvement may be in the coming weeks with a challenging schedule on the horizon.
Thirteen of the Chicago's next 19 games are against playoff teams from last year, beginning with Friday night's series opener on the road...
Off days suck. The traditional day off after game number one by MLB schedule makers is always one of the toughest to make it through, but fate made it an especially difficult task for Cubs fans as two nearly Cubs from a year ago showed why the front office had interest in them.

The Bucs look to break into the win column tonight as they take on the Cubs in the first night game of the season. Attendance will certainly be down quite a bit compared to Monday, but the team is trying its best to attract fans by maintaining this annual tradition:
