Cubs' Javier Baez shaken up after collision at second base Friday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs shortstop Javier Baez was in the middle of a nasty collision Friday at second base while trying to turn a double play. It looked bad enough manager Joe Maddon was a bit nervous Baez may have suffered a serious injury, reports MLB.com.

"I asked him when was the last time a Puerto Rican had played in the NFL, because he just felt it right there," Maddon said of the crash with the Angels' Kole Calhoun on a double play. "[Baez] got smoked. I didn't know what was wrong with him, but he got hammered. I loved it."

Baez remained in the game and turned the double play. It is unknown yet whether Baez will make the final roster for Opening Day.

Cubs' Kris Bryant on Opening Day status: 'Why not me?'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein has never started a rookie on Opening Day. Kris Bryant wants to be change that trend this season.

"I look at it as why not me?" Bryant said Friday, per MLB.com. "I think I'm the type of guy who can go out there and do it. I've made it a point of mine to show them that I can."

Epstein said Friday that no decision has been made regarding Bryant.

"It's for baseball reasons, and it hasn't been about anything else besides baseball reasons," Epstein said. "We spend a lot of time thinking about which players to draft, how to get them off to a good start in their professional careers, how to help them advance in the Minor Leagues, and how to help them make that final leap to the big leagues and when and how to do it to put them in a position to succeed."

Bryant is in the midst of a scorching hot spring, with nine homers in 32 at-bats. On Thursday, the 23-year-old prospect also showed some versatility by starting in left field against the Jered Weaver and the Angels.

"Yesterday was good for me to go out there and face a pitcher like Jered Weaver who has incredible stuff,” Bryant said. "He's a different type of pitcher and it was really good for me to go out there and struggle a little bit, see what he’s going to throw me and learn from it. I took it as a learning experience."

Bryant has three multi-home run games this spring. He is hitting .406/.472/1.313 in 12 Cactus League games.

New MLB commissioner Rob Manfred told reporters that Bryant's agent, Scott Boras, should not be involved in Chicago's roster decisions, even when it comes to Bryant, per the Chicago Tribune.

"Look, I don't think the Cubs decision on what’s going to happen to Kris Bryant is really any of Mr. Boras' business," Manfred said. "I think the Cubs -- I know the Cubs -- will make decisions that are best for the long term competitiveness of the club. And focusing on whether a particular player has played, or is with a club on a day, or days, I don’t think is a fair evaluation of what the club is up to.

"The club is in the best position, and the Cubs are in the best position, to decide what's going to make them the most competitive over the longest period of time."

Cubs' Chris Denorfia might play in minor-league games next week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs outfielder Chris Denorfia, who has not appeared in a spring game since March 17 due to a sore left hamstring, might start playing in minor-league games next week, per MLB.com.

Denorfia will most likely not be ready to play in the regular-season opener.

"Opening Day is probably in jeopardy," manager Joe Maddon said Thursday.

Denorfia ran at about 40 percent Thursday and has been making progress.

"There's no sense in rushing anything," Maddon said. "When you're talking about [hamstring injuries], and guys try to push 'hammies' too quickly, then you end up with a longer healing process."

Cubs' Lester says he has a 'normal day' during minor-league outing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester threw 54 pitches in a minor-league game Thursday, per MLB.com. Lester gave up one hit and one walk, while striking out three of the 12 batters he faced.

“What I was really watching was him and watching his face and he never seemed like anything bothered him, so I know his arm feels great and that’s all I was worried about,” manager Joe Maddon said. “He felt good and his energy was good (Thursday). … He threw some nice fastballs, nice cutters, yeah, yeah, yeah, but I thought he looked comfortable and that’s the most important thing.”

Thursday was the first time Lester pitched in a game since being scratched last week due to a tired arm. Lester is scheduled to make one more start before the season opener (April 5) against the Cardinals. He is scheduled to throw 75-80 pitches in a minor-league start next week.

“Today was good, today was a normal day,” Lester said. “[I’ll] come back tomorrow and go about work again.”
