Comprehensive and up-to-date Chicago Cubs news, scores, schedule, stats and roster



 



The Cubs are suddenly on fire and they are rumored to be close to fixing their biggest weakness

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 18:12:43 GMT

The Chicago Cubs have come out of nowhere to play like the best team in baseball, and it looks like they're only going to get better. Surging since the All-Star break, the Cubs have won six consecutive games through Thursday before a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, and sit just one game behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central. On Friday, MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported that the Cubs are interested in trading for righty starter Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers.



Bryant gallops home, Cubs rally in 8th, edge Cardinals 3-2

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 02:57:55 GMT

Kris Bryant wasn't going to let a sprained pinkie and a broken bat hold him back. Bryant raced home from first base on Anthony Rizzo's bloop double, capping a three-run rally in the eighth inning that sent the Chicago Cubs over the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Saturday in the ever-tightening NL Central race. Bryant also had a tying, broken-bat single during the comeback.



After losing uncle, emotional Jon Lester pays tribute with Notre Dame rallying cry

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 23:51:59 GMT

For the second time in the last month, the reigning MVP has avoided serious injury and returned ahead of schedule. Kris Bryant continues to impress everybody with his magical healing abilities. He is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals after injuring a finger on his left hand while diving into third base during the first inning of Wednesday's game in Atlanta. Bryant was immediately removed from that game, had the off-day Thursday, was held out Friday and expected to be sitting again for the second game of this Cubs-Cardinals series. But that's not the case. Bryant is once again hitting second and playing third base after missing only 17.5 innings with a finger issue



Will Cubs add another ace? Report says North Siders interested in Yu Darvish

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 15:36:20 GMT

It's been a little more than a week since the Cubs altered the state of their pitching staff for years to come with that blockbuster crosstown swap that brought Jose Quintana to the North Side. But are the Cubs looking to make another massive upgrade to their starting rotation before the trade deadline? According to MLB.com's Jon Paul Morosi, the Cubs are interested in Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish. Now it might not make too much sense at first blush for the Cubs, who dealt away their top two minor leaguers in the trade for Quintana, to acquire another frontline starting pitcher, especially one who unlike Quintana will become a free agent at the end of the season. After all, if the Cubs do want



Wake-up Call: Cubs targeting Yu?; Yoan produces for Sox; Q plots line combos

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 04:50:08 GMT

So that six-game winning streak was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it? The Cubs’ perfect second half came to a crashing halt Friday in the series opener with the visiting St. Louis Cardinals, an 11-4 drubbing low-lighted by a never-ending eighth inning in which the Cards torched the Cubs’ bullpen for nine runs. It was a screaming reminder that the second half, even with its 6-0 start, won’t be all sunshine, lollipops and rainbows for the defending champs. One nasty result after a six-game stretch of hot bats and hot pitching shouldn’t send Cubs fans panicking about a falling sky — even though the heavens opened up and poured a gigantic, watery metaphor down on the Friendly Confines after Friday’s



Kris Bryant ignites World Series nostalgia with Cubs' epic eighth-inning comeback

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 00:21:51 GMT

Reminded me a lot of a play in the World Series. The tens of thousands of Cubs fans losing their minds over the North Siders eighth-inning comeback made that very clear. Bryant, though, was the one who provided it, first driving in the game-tying run mere moments after the visiting St. Louis Cardinals smashed open a pitchers duel with back-to-back homers off Jon Lester in the top of the eighth.



Cardinals score 9 in 8th, cool off Cubs with 11-4 win

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 23:07:33 GMT

For 11 straight batters in the eighth inning, the St. Louis Cardinals were unstoppable. Paul DeJong hit a tiebreaking two-run double in St. Louis' highest-scoring inning of the season, and the Cardinals cooled off the Chicago Cubs with an 11-4 victory on Friday. Chicago carried a 3-2 lead into the eighth, looking for its seventh consecutive win.



Brewers seek to halt 6-game slide at Phillies

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 04:14:12 GMT

Looking to snap a season-worst six game losing streak, the Milwaukee Brewers will send left-hander Brent Suter to the mound against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. Suter, who will make his fifth start of the season, is 1-1 with a 3.09 ERA, but pitching hasn't been the Brewers' main concern lately. Manager Craig Counsell knows his team is struggling at the plate and the only way to turn the team's fortune around is to change that.



MLB Trade Rumors: Many Teams Interested In Marlins Closer AJ Ramos

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 14:54:37 GMT

The MLB Trade Deadline is nine days away yet deals have already started taking place all around the league. On Friday afternoon, the Seattle Mariners assured their push for the playoffs in the American League West by acquiring reliever David Phelps



MLB Notes: Mariners send top prospect Tyler O'Neill to Cardinals

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 17:37:01 GMT

SEATTLE -- The Seattle Mariners have acquired young left-hander Marco Gonzales from the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for top outfield prospect Tyler O'Neill.The clubs pulled off the surprising deal Friday, the second move to add pitching help in as



Greg Maddux threw a 76-pitch complete game on this day 20 years ago

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 15:16:33 GMT

Not only did Maddux not walk anyone, he didn’t get into a single three-ball count all day. You might think Maddux could have written a textbook in pitching efficiency that day, but actually, the game was probably moving too quick. The Braves beat the Cubs 4-1 in two hours and seven minutes.



MLB Rumors: Twins Close to Acquiring Jaime Garcia from Braves

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 10:21:39 GMT

The second half of the MLB season is underway and rumors are already starting to fly about deals that could be made with less than two weeks before the non-waiver trade deadline on July 31. As teams scramble to get a foothold of their positions in their



MLB: Darvish strikes out 12 batters amid trade rumors

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 07:04:05 GMT

Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish may be wearing a new uniform very soon but it was all business in MLB on Friday. Darvish struck out 12 batters while allowing three runs in eight innings in a 4-3, 10-inning win against the Tampa Bay Rays. The 30-year-old'



Joe Maddon updates injury status of Kris Bryant, Kyle Hendricks heading into Cardinals series

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 17:13:49 GMT

Kris Bryant will likely miss the first two games of this weekend's series against the St. Louis Cardinals and could miss the whole three-game set, according to Joe Maddon. The Cubs manager said the reigning National League MVP will be sidelined as he recovers from a sore finger, injured when he slid head first into third base in the first inning of Wednesday's series-finale against the Atlanta Braves down in Georgia. "He's just not ready today, but we're going to do this (as) a day-by-day thing," Maddon said. "I really don't know. If I had to guess, probably not tomorrow, too. And possibly on Sunday, but I really don't know. "He healed well with the ankle, we did not expect that to come back



Levine: For Cubs, Buyer Beware With Deadline Deals

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 20:20:00 GMT

CHICAGO (CBS) — If you are Theo Epstein or Jed Hoyer, it can be scary out on that plank looking into the sea of trading more prospects for another shot at a deep playoff run. The slippery slope that a front office man must walk down can lead to a dead end or worse — danger ahead for you, Mr. Baseball Executive, if you make a Doyle Alexander-for-John Smoltz or Larry Andersen-for-Jeff Bagwell trade. Of more current concern, bringing in the wrong veteran for a two-month pennant run can blow up momentum and clubhouse togetherness. “Lateral moves can work against you,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon. “When you do that, you have to be convinced that the move is going to work out. I don’t want to say he has



Brewers aim to end 5-game skid, hold on to NL Central lead

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 15:19:21 GMT

MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers are hoping to end to a five-game losing streak that has weakened their grip on the National League Central lead. The Brewers start a three-game series in Philadelphia against the Phillies tonight. Milwaukee was swept in a four-game series in Pittsburgh. The five-game skid ties a season high for Milwaukee. A 5 1/2-game lead in the division at the All-Star break has been reduced to just a game with the second-place Chicago Cubs on a six-game winning streak. Manager Craig Counsell’s team has had a lead in each loss during the skid. It’s the first time that has happened to the Brewers since 1993. The Brewers hope to turn things around in Philadelphia, where they



Cubs rally in 8th inning to top Cardinals 3-2

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 22:44:00 GMT

Jon Lester retired the first 17 batters he faced and eventually recorded the win as the Cubs rallied to defeat the Cardinals 3-2 on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field. Anthony Rizzo doubled in Kris Bryant with the winning run as the Cubs came back from a 2-0 deficit in the eighth. Paul DeJong and Randal Grichuk had back-to-back home runs in the top of the eighth against Lester, but that was it for the Cardinals. At the plate: Bryant had two hits and a RBI while Ben Zobrist also knocked in a run. On the mound: Lester retired the first 17 hitters before Adam Wainwright sent a sharp single into left field in the top of the sixth. Lester went eight innings and yielded two runs on three hits with
