Starlin Castro to resume rehab in Arizona during the offseason
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro will spend some time in the Dominican Republic, but plans to resume his rehab at the team's spring facility in Arizona during the offseason, MLB.com reports Saturday.

Castro suffered a high left ankle sprain while sliding into home plate on Sept. 2, and injured that ended his season prematurely. He finished 2014 with a .292/.339/.438 slash line with 14 home runs and 65 RBI in 528 at-bats.

"It's big time frustrating," Castro said. "It's tough for me because I worked really hard to come back for one game or two. It's not going to happen but I'm not going to get frustrated. It's a really important season next year and I'm going to be healthy."

Mike Olt to learn corner outfield positions this offseason
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Cubs will talk with infielder Mike Olt about learning the corner outfield positions this offseason, ESPNChicago.com reports.

"He's always a threat against left-handed pitching, so he can be a guy that covers the four corners and mashes left-handed pitching," team president Theo Epstein said Friday. "That's a nice default for him if the opportunity to play every day doesn't materialize."

Olt has hit .263/.370/.368 in 38 at-bats since rejoining the Cubs in September.

Eric Jokisch has some command issues in first career start
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Eric Jokisch had some command issues in his first career start Friday night against the Brewers.

Jokisch, who failed to factor into the decision, allowed a solo home run to Jean Segura in the second and allowed a run to score on a throwing error in the third. He was charged with two runs -- one earned -- on three hits and four walks while striking out two over four innings pitched. Of his 86 pitches, 41 were strikes.

Jokisch owns a 1.88 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP over 14 1/3 innings of work this season.

Cubs expecting more out of Edwin Jackson in 2015
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein told reporters that the team will expect more out of pitcher Edwin Jackson next season, MLB.com reports Friday. Jackson is in the second year of his four-year, $52 million deal. Last year, he led the National League in losses with 18, and is third in losses this year with 15. After making his final start on Sept. 19, he was moved to the bullpen.

"I think Edwin's aware that he needs to turn his Cubs career around and work hard and show better form that he's someone who can be counted on," Epstein said. "I think the default position is that given the competition we're going to have, guys will need to pitch well to have a spot."
