Cubs' John Lackey: Pitches well Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lackey went six innings in Friday's spring training loss to the Indians, allowing five hits and a run. He struck out five.

Lackey is lined up to pitch the third game of the season for Chicago, and the veteran once again looks like a solid rotation option. He's not an elite fantasy pitcher, but Lackey is crafty and he should get plenty of wins pitching for a team that won 103 games a season ago.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Sees first spring action at catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber played four innings behind the plate in a minor league game Friday, his first time at catcher this spring, William Boor of reports.

Schwarber will primarily play left field this season, but he came up as a catcher and the Cubs plan on using him as an emergency option behind Willson Contreras and Miguel Montero. Schwarber blocked a few balls in the game and said his body felt good afterward. "I love catching," Schwarber said. "It's what I was whenever I played baseball. I was always a catcher. For me to be able to do that today and feel pretty good about myself walking away from the day, it was a good step."

Cubs' Albert Almora: Traveling for split-squad game Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Almora (neck) is set to travel with the team for the Cubs' split-squad game in Las Vegas on Saturday, Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune reports.

It appears that Almora avoided anything significant after leaving Friday's game with neck tightness as a result of a sliding catch. The fact that he's making the trip for Saturday's split-squad game is an especially encouraging sign. Even if Almora is held out Saturday, it does not appear Friday's neck tightness will keep him on the shelf for long.

Cubs' Albert Almora: Exits with neck tightness Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Almora exited Friday's spring training game with tightness on the left side of his neck, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The talented Almora was pulled from Friday's game after making a diving attempt in the third inning. According to Wittenmyer, Almora is currently being evaluated by the Cubs' medical staff. The Cubs should provide a further update on Almora following Friday's game.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Back issue not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell's back issue that's causing him to miss Friday's Cactus League game isn't serious, and he's considered day-to-day, Carrie Muskat of reports.

It turns out to be good news for the middle infield bopper, but it's worth keeping an eye on this the next few days to see if he returns. This doesn't appear to be an injury that affects his fantasy draft value, though.
