Midweek Quick Hits: Maine, Wells, VFTB & More

I will be leaving tomorrow morning to go to Arizona for Spring Training! I will see the rest of the Cubs Cactus League games, starting with tomorrow's battle with the White Sox at HoHoKam Park. I will provide daily reports from The Valley of the Sun on this site!

Click here for my first article over at View From the Bleachers. I will be doing some writing over at VFTB, so please check out that great site.

A lot of news lately, let us get you caught up.
  • The Cubs made four more roster cuts today. Justin Berg, Todd Wellemyer, Scott Maine and Angel Guzman were all assigned to minor league camp.
  • Randy Wells has been awarded the job as the Cubs number four starter.
  • Aramis Ramirez has been battling a fever, but he is starting to feel better and is back in Cubs camp.
  • Carrie Muskat tweets that Carlos Silva, Braden Looper and Andrew Cashner are all still in the mix for the final spot in the rotation.
  • Muskat reports that Max Ramirez was expected to have an MRI on his sore wrist today.
  • Arizona Phil from TCR saw Carlos Marmol and Justin Berg pitch at Fitch Park yesterday and wrote up a full report.
  • Matt Garza will pitch against the White Sox tomorrow. Kosuke, Castro, Byrd, Ramirez, Pena, Soriano, Barney and Hill are expected to be in the starting lineup.

That's it for now, but I'll keep you posted!
