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.

Cubs' Javier Baez: Could earn full-time job at second
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baez could become the full-time starter at second to start the season or sometime during the year, The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Baez's versatility in 2016 was a big boon for the Cubs, but second base is his best position, and it's possible he becomes an everyday player there sometime in 2017. "Obviously, when I get my years in the big leagues, I want to have my own spot," Baez said. Ben Zobrist is in the mix at second as well, but he'll likely spend time platooning with Kyle Schwarber in left field.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondon, who is on Venezuela's World Baseball Classic roster, said he wants to talk to the Cubs to make sure it's OK he pitches, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Rondon spent some time on the DL last season with a triceps injury, and he wants to make sure he's 100 percent healthy for the start of the MLB season. Venezuela will begin play in the WBC on March 10 against Puerto Rico.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Willing to have contract talks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta said he expects to talk to the Cubs again about a contract extension before he becomes a free agent next fall, The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

"There's an open dialogue there. I think we will have talks," Arrieta said. "But it's not my No. 1 priority." The 30-year-old has resurrected his career since coming to Chicago in 2013, and he figures to be in line for a big payday next offseason. Whether the Cubs will be willing to meet the price tag will be a big storyline to watch.
