Maddon: Cubs will play Kris Bryant in the outfield more
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Kris Bryant got a start in left field for the Cubs on Sunday, the second time this spring he's played there. 

Manager Joe Maddon would like to see Bryant there more. "You never know where the need will arise," Maddon said, per MLB.com. "All of a sudden, you could have a need here, and he hasn’t played there." 

Maddon also thinks it will help Bryant at the plate. "I honestly believe it makes a younger hitter a better hitter," he said. "If he’s moving around a lot, and has to work with so many different defensive positions, he doesn’t worry so much about his hitting."

Cubs' Maddon on Jason Motte: 'I'm not worried about him'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicated Sunday that he's not concerned with the struggles of pitcher Jason Motte, who has posted a 14.21 ERA in 6 1/3 spring innings, the Chicago Tribune reports.

"Something that I’m not often into is mechanical adjustments," Maddon said of Motte. "It's something that [pitching coach Chris Bosio] picked up on in a conversation. I'm not worried about him. I think the velocity is very good. Just the shape of his pitches were different."

Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta does it all in start Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta tossed five strike outs over four scoreless innings of work Saturday. Arrieta also added a three-run home run and an RBI double to help his own cause, something he simply called a good work day, reports MLB.com.

"i like it," Arrieta said. "I think it allows us to put a little speed behind me. I feel I can handle the bat well. Depending on the situation, I feel I can put a bunt down efficiently."

Arrieta feels comfortable with the bat in his hand, partially why manager Joe Maddon is considering batting the pitcher eighth in the order.

"It is the pitcher, and it seems like a break in the lineup, but we feel we can do some damage there and help us out," Arrieta said.

Cubs' Anthony Rizzo gets chance batting leadoff Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is better known as a power hitter. But Saturday, the club gave him a chance to bat leadoff in a split-squad game.

"I think I'm your prototypical leadoff hitter," Rizzo said. "I'm going to try to see some pitches, get on base. We don't steal much on this team anyway."

Rizzo, who normally bats third in the order, gave the lineup a breath of fresh air, according to manager Joe Maddon.

"It kind of freshens them up a bit," Maddon said. "The big thing is to protect him, and if you don't, he's not going to get pitched to."

Joe Maddon considering OF Jorge Soler for Cubs' No. 2 spot
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

With the No. 2 spot still undecided in the Cubs' lineup, manager Joe Maddon said outfielder Jorge Soler could be the man for the job, according to MLB.com.

“He’s a really interesting baseball player,” Maddon said. “I’d heard good things, but his impression on me has been really strong.”

Outfielder Chris Coghlan has been the frontrunner for the role but Maddon likes Soler's plate discipline.

“With [Soler], it goes beyond his power. This guy looks over a baseball now. This guy has great decision-making ability at the plate," Maddon said. That bleeds into either you’re driving in the second leadoff hitter plus one, or he’s setting up somebody after him because the guy is going to take his walks."

Soler is hitting .333 this spring with three home runs, eight doubles and 20 RBI.
