Cubs' Brett Anderson: Feels healthy early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson feels that he is fully recovered from a bulging disk in his lower back that cost him most of the 2016 season, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The back injury limited Anderson to just four games last season, and he acknowledged that another serious back injury could end his career. For the moment, Anderson is healthy and competing with Mike Montgomery for the No. 5 spot in the rotation. The talent has always been there for Anderson, but he's only reached 100 innings once in the last six seasons due to a variety of injuries.

Cubs' Javier Baez: Looking for consistency
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Cubs want Baez to be more consistent in the field before he assumes an everyday role at second base, CSN Chicago reports.

As manager Joe Maddon put it, he wants Baez to cut down on the "chrome" and focus on making all the routine plays. Maddon added that Baez "has a flair about his game, so I don't necessarily want to subtract that. But just have him understand the routine stuff has to be made routinely well." The 24-year-old often makes amazing plays in the field, but he's still fairly error-prone at this point (see the two errors he made in Game 7 of the World Series). For Baez to grab an everyday role at second base, he'll have to show more day-to-day consistency.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Could rest more this year
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zobrist could be given more days off during spring training and the upcoming season, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Zobrist played in 147 games for the Cubs last season, but he turns 36 in May, so manager Joe Maddon said he'll look to find him more rest days in an effort to keep the veteran fresh for another October run. Helping matters is the emergence of Javier Baez, who gives Chicago another very good option at second base. Expect Baez and Zobrist to platoon there this season, but Baez -- who started at second in all 17 postseason games last fall -- could end up taking the job full-time. That would push Zobrist into more of a super-utility role.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Catches bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber caught a bullpen session from John Lackey on Friday, MLB.com reports.

Schwarber had his left leg extended while in the squat to avoid putting extra stress on the knee, so he's clearly easing back into the position. Still, this is a good sign for Schwarber, who is expected to serve as the team's third catcher this season. Look for him to do more work behind the plate during spring training, but Schwarber's primary position this year will be left field.

Cubs' Carl Edwards Jr.: Could see expanded role in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Edwards could see an uptick in usage this season and possibly a higher-leverage role, The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Edwards pitched a combined 61.1 innings last year between Triple-A and the majors. He posted a 3.75 ERA with 52 strikeouts across 36 innings for the Cubs, and manager Joe Maddon said Edwards could be used in a setup role this year for closer Wade Davis. "You saw last year what he's capable of doing," Maddon said. "I really anticipate a lot of the same and probably a little bit of an uptick there.
