Lester, Cubs on wrong end of pitchers' duel

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 23:43:56 EDT

With the Cubs' offense on a roll going into Wednesday's finale of a two-game set vs. their 2016 World Series opponent, the Indians, manager Joe Maddon was curious to see his team's plate approach against a hot pitcher like Tribe starter Trevor Bauer, who took a 2.67 ERA into the start and has a deep repertoire. Suffice to say the roll did not continue in a 4-1 loss at Progressive Field. Bauer had his off-speed stuff working, and the Cubs did not mount much of a threat on a night in which staff ace Jon Lester was touched for three solo shots.

Baez playfully taunts Lindor after beating out single

Bryant held out of finale, could return Thursday

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 19:19:59 EDT

Kris Bryant was held out of the Cubs' lineup again Wednesday for the finale of a two-game set with the Indians. Bryant was hit in the head by a fastball from Rockies starter German Marquez on Sunday and has passed concussion tests, but this was his second straight day on the shelf.

Hendricks gets nod as Cubs return to Wrigley

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 17:45:06 EDT

On the MLB Network Showcase Game, the Cubs welcome the division-rival Brewers to Wrigley Field for the first time in 2018 with Thursday's 7:05 p.m. CT opener of a four-game wraparound set. Kyle Hendricks (1-1, 4.09) will oppose Chase Anderson (2-1, 3.25), and the Cubs hope to get Kris Bryant, who was struck in the helmet by a fastball Sunday in Colorado, back into the lineup after his checkup with the team doctor.

Cubs top Tribe in WS redux on Schwarber's HRs

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 22:43:03 EDT

Even if this hadn't been the building in which the Cubs enjoyed a champagne celebration 108 years in the making back in 2016, Progressive Field would rate as a pretty special place for Kyle Schwarber. It's the ballpark where Schwarber notched his first big league hit and his first home run in 2015. It's the ballpark where he returned from a torn ACL to serve as the Cubs' dynamo DH in that fascinating '16 Fall Classic. And on Tuesday night, it was the ballpark where his two home runs keyed a dinger derby off Tribe starter Josh Tomlin in a 10-3 victory.

Epstein knew risk of trading Gleyber for Aroldis

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 01:33:20 EDT

When the Cubs traded Gleyber Torres for Aroldis Chapman in July 2016, it was viewed as a steep price to pay for an impending free agent. But Theo Epstein was well aware of the gamble.

Revisiting Game 7 of 2016 World Series

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 01:10:27 EDT

This is the story of what happened just before the rain put a pause in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. The inning in-between Rajai Davis' moment of game-tying glory and Jason Heyward's Knute Rockne-like role in the visiting weight room gets lost in the shuffle of the Game 7 narrative. But in pure baseball terms, it's the ninth inning that allowed the Cubs to steal the Tribe's thunder and seal the way we think about 2016.

Cubs rally after Bryant exits, hang on vs. Rox

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 22:03:09 EDT

The Cubs wasted no time establishing momentum in Sunday's rubber match with the Rockies, riding a four-hit, three-run rally in the first inning to a 9-7 victory. Rockies starter German Marquez was cruising through the first before a 96-mph fastball got away from him and hit Kris Bryant in the brim of his helmet. Bryant left the game, and preliminary tests showed no signs of concussion. Brandon Morrow closed the game with a nail-biter of a save, loading the bases on two hits and a two-out walk before throwing a wild pitch to Ian Desmond and getting Nolan Arenado at the plate on a reviewed play after Arenado was initially called safe.

Baez, LeMahieu explain spat at second base

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 00:46:42 EDT

he Cubs and Rockies had a number of delays in Sunday's series finale -- including Kris Bryant's departure and injury checks on Albert Almora Jr. after a pair of athletic catches -- but the oddest was a heated exchange between shortstop Javier Baez and Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu in the third inning of the Cubs' 9-7 win.

Bote gets hit in hometown in 1st MLB at-bat

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 01:51:52 EDT

Cubs put Zobrist on DL, call up prospect Bote

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 02:40:44 EDT

A stretch of rough weather contributed to Ben Zobrist going on the 10-day disabled list Saturday (retroactive to April 18), as he experienced continued tightness in his mid-to-lower back. Zobrist's hard luck spelled good fortune for Colorado native David Bote, who was recalled from Triple-A Iowa and in the lineup Saturday at third base to make his Major League debut in the park where he grew up watching baseball as a kid.

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 21:09:00 EDT

Eddie Butler's homecoming to Colorado -- the team he came up with before a February 2017 trade to the Cubs -- started inauspiciously, as the right-handed pitcher went on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain Friday. The Cubs recalled right-hander Luke Farrell from Triple-A Iowa.

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 00:45:53 EDT

Javier Baez finished a triple shy of the cycle, hitting a two-run homer in the eighth inning, but it wasn't enough to help Tyler Chatwood on Tuesday night.
