LUIS VALBUENA RUMORS

Castillo, Valbuena help Cubs beat Brewers 4-2

CHICAGO (AP) -- Welington Castillo homered and drove in three runs, Luis Valbuena also hit a home run and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 Monday. Rookie sensation Jorge Soler had two doubles in his home debut for the Cubs and Jacob Turner (5-8) won in just his second start for Chicago after being acquired from Miami last month. The right-hander allowed just one run...

Cubs 3, Padres 8 (7/24/14)

Did The Cubs Win? OSS: Tsuyoshi lays an egg, and the Cubs bats (with Luis excepted) fall mostly silent. Three Up 1. Luis Valbuena hit a 3-run HR, which provided the entirety of the Cubs’ scoring. In the best case scenario, Valbuena is a super-DeRosa in 2015, and even if he starts, you don’t feel too bad. 2. Anthony Rizzo actually had a better game than Valbuena, going 1-2 with...

Idunno’s on Third: 2014 Edition

The Cubs didn’t do much tonight, but take a look at the slash line for Luis Valbuena: .288/.394/.456 I figured that Valbuena would have a pretty good OBP, but he has been on a tear lately and so while I wasn’t paying attention, his batting average shot up and despite striking out in his last at-bat, hes OPSing .850 in a part-time role.  As Cubs fans we are familiar with his...

Oh my gawd Luis Valbuena is the backup catcher

RED ALERT!  RED ALERT!  THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Seriously, they even said it…since John Baker is nursing a sore throat from the foul ball last night, Welington Castillo is on the disabled list due to a ribcage strain, leaving only Eli Whiteside as a bonafide catcher at the major league level, it’s going to be Luis Valbuena to the rescue… If necessary Luis Valbuena is emergency...

Road to Opening Day: #7

The Cubs used a power display to defeat the A’s on Sunday. I’m disappointed that Luis Valbuena didn’t really bat flip.  And then there was this defensive masterpiece by Darnell McDonald… He’ll get to laugh it off because the Cubs won. In other news, Starlin Castro got to play in minor league camp on Sunday and should be getting defensive innings soon. On the transactional...
