Cubs' Zac Rosscup: Feels good in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosscup said he felt good after an inning of work Sunday, his first appearance since undergoing shoulder surgery in May, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Rosscup underwent a debridement procedure in his pitching shoulder that shut him down from May through the end of the season. "It felt great," Rosscup said of his return. "I was a little amped up, but I think that's normal, missing all last year and the long road. But I'm glad I put that behind me and got the first one out of the way this spring." Rosscup will likely begin the year at Triple-A, but as a lefty who spent parts of three seasons at the MLB level, he could get an early look with the Cubs this year.

Cubs' Pierce Johnson: Set to act as reliever in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson will stay in the bullpen, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

After an injury-plagued 2016 campaign, the Cubs are hoping that a move to the bullpen will keep their pitching prospect healthy while also helping his fastball and breaking pitches to become sharper. Johnson struggled in his first taste of Triple-A last season, but if he can right the ship while maintaining his uptick in strikeouts from last season, he could find his way to Wrigley Field later in the season.

Cubs' Chesny Young: Impresses in winter league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young put together a strong performance in the Dominican Winter League during the offseason, reports.

Young, a top-20 prospect for the Cubs, batted .351 in 22 regular-season games, then hit .314 in the DWL playoffs. The 24-year-old middle infielder has been solid with the bat since being drafted in 2014 and he should begin the year at Triple-A, but the likes of Addison Russell and Javier Baez are blocking him at the MLB level.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: New swing impresses manager
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said he is impressed with Heyward's modified swing early in spring training, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Heyward worked on revamping his swing during the offseason, and so far his manager likes what he is seeing, noting that Heyward's hands appear to be working better. "It's a new toy, but the toy has a lot of potential benefits," Maddon said. "I think there's a pretty good year out there for him." Heyward posted the worst offensive season of his career in 2016, finishing with just a .631 OPS, but he's a decent bounceback candidate this year.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Could share rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Manager Joe Maddon said that Montgomery could share the fifth spot in the rotation with Brett Anderson, Carrie Muskat of reports.

The two lefties were reportedly competing for the No. 5 spot this spring, but it could turn out that the competition ends in a tie. Maddon says he's considering the move because neither pitcher has reached the 200-inning plateau in a season yet. Anderson, in particular, missed a majority of last season with wrist and finger injuries, and has been injury plagued throughout his career. This move would limit the fantasy upside of both players.
