The re-tooled Chicago Cubs rotation has gotten off to a nice start this Spring Training, posting a 3.50 ERA through 15 games. One of the biggest questions surrounding this team this year is this rotation and how the loss of Yu Darvish will impact the group. The additions of Jake Arrieta, Trevor Williams and Zach Davies have a lot of upside and Williams, in particular, presents potential a lot of people aren’t talking about.

Williams has spent five seasons in the big leagues, all with the intra-division rival Pittsburgh Pirates. Through those Nike Chicago Cubs Jerseys five seasons, he worked to a 4.43 ERA and 7.0 SO/9. His best season came in 2018 in which he posted a 3.11 ERA with a 14-10 record. The right-hander has the tools to be a solid middle of the rotation option.

The one concern with the 28-year-old right hander is his home run rate. In 2020, he gave up 15 home runs which was the most in all of the majors, coming on the heels of 27 long balls in 2019. If Williams can limit the amount of long balls he gives up he will become a much more trustworthy option.

Williams has posted a career WAR of 4.7 which comes out to an average of a little under 1.0. The Cubs signed him to a one-year, $2.5 million deal and I believe there’s a lot of value with that. Chicago has become kings of the one-year-deal and this should invoke a lot of motivation, especially for a guy like Williams, who’s coming off the worst year of his career in which he posted a 6.18 ERA in the shortened season.

Cubs: Can a feel-good story be more?
Not only is this a value signing, it’s great for morale. Williams dad grew up a die hard Cubs fan and even worked as an usher at Wrigley Field for a few years. Having this tie-in with the team writes a great narrative for this group and could be just what Williams needs to get back on track and in the right mindset.

The Cubs need everyone to step up this year and the rotation has the opportunity to turn some heads and show that the Darvish loss will not define them. Williams is an X-factor for this group and if he can tap into his 2018 form, the Cubs are going to become an intriguing team to watch. As we say every year, the pieces are there but the low-risk, high-upside options need to pay off.

Williams has shown he has what it takes to be an effective starting pitcher in this league and his importance to this team should not be overlooked as he takes the mound in 2021.

I am very happy to see that Ohio is already moving to a new vaccination phase on Thursday (anyone over 50 years old – that’s a big jump), and while I won’t qualify in that tier, it is nice to see things moving along.

• Among the Cubs who have yet to appear this Spring, outfielder Jake Marisnick, slowed by a calf injury, is expected to be the team’s primary fourth outfielder. So you’d like to see him getting some at bats before too long. David Ross says the plan is for Marisnick to debut this weekend, or by Monday at the latest (NBC). For a position player, a couple weeks of spring at bats should be enough.

• Kyle Ryan is also yet to debut after being a late arriver due to the COVID protocols. He should be throwing live BP soon (NBC), but as a guy on a split contract, he might be due to open the season in the minor leagues (well, the alt site) initially anyway. Rex Brothers has looked awfully good so far, and it’s certainly possible the Cubs will want him to be the second lefty in the bullpen to open the season anyway. I’m still not sure Stitched Chicago Cubs Jerseys what’s up with Brad Wieck, who missed most of last season with a hamstring injury, and also has yet to appear in a game. He has a minor league option left, so, like Ryan, he might not be making the team to open the season anyway.

• Cubs starting pitchers so far this spring, via “Cubs starters have combined to allow just one run on eight hits in 16 innings through eight Cactus League games this spring. The group has combined for 13 strikeouts against five walks.” Trevor Williams, who was solid his first time out, makes spring start number two today.

• Trevor Megill was getting a lot of attention last Spring Training as a very good relief prospect who got squeezed out of San Diego’s roster crunch, whom the Cubs snagged in the Rule 5 Draft, and whom the Cubs were working with on a new knuckle curveball. But then COVID hit. Upon the resumption of spring/summer training, the Cubs decided to waive Megill, and he went unclaimed as a Rule 5 guy (with Rule 5 restrictions, that makes sense). Then the Cubs had to work a trade with the Padres to keep Megill, which they did. So anyway, that is all to say, it’s been a really weird couple of years for a guy who was definitely considered a quality relief prospect in 2019, so we shouldn’t ignore him this year, just because he’s a 27-year-old relief prospect who hasn’t made it to the big leagues yet. Once he reaches the big leagues (if he reaches the big leagues), and is then added to the 40-man roster, he’ll have three options years, too.

• I bring all that up because he appeared in yesterday’s game, and was throwing 97-99 mph, according to Arizona Phil (who had him at just 95-97 mph at this time last year(!)). The broadcast has been lacking velos so far, but that does kind match the eye test. Megill was clearly emphasizing the fastball yesterday, trying to locate down at the knees with his exaggerated, over-the-top delivery (which makes him look REALLY weird at a whopping 6’8″). I presume that is the idea with his fastball: since it’s going to be coming from such a high place anyway (he’s tall!), and since he’s got that over-the-top delivery (the release point is even higher!), the Cubs maybe want him to locate down, because then the plane change is so extreme for a batter who probably almost never sees pitches like that. And if it’s coming in at 99mph and he’s got a hammer knuckle curve, too? The Cubs have clearly had success in making relievers into guys who do weird, extreme things. I think that’s the idea with Megill.

• I don’t care how you pull it off or whether it’s the regular season or Spring Training: I love when a team steals home. Obviously a STRAIGHT steal of home (incredibly rare at this point) is the holy grail of fun baserunning moments, but when El Mago does it on an extra throw, it’s still pretty darn fun. Yesterday’s wasn’t QUITE El Mago level but it was still fun, with Alfonso Rivas going on the double steal:

MESA, Ariz. — The Cubs will re-sign right-hander Ryan Tepera to a one-year, $800,000 deal, pending a physical, according to a source.

Tepera was a big piece of the Cubs’ bullpen in 2020, and after Jeremy Jeffress, he might have been the team’s best reliever during the shortened season. The right-hander was 0-1 with a 3.92 ERA with a career-high 34.8% strikeout rate.

“I think Ryan Tepera last year did a really good job for us of coming in and pitching some really big innings,” manager David Ross said. “I thought he bridged the gap to the back end [of the bullpen] really well. That sixth, seventh [inning] spot where maybe [Rowan] Wick was used the day before. There’s so many pieces to that Wholesale Chicago Cubs Jerseys bullpen. He was a significant piece for us last year that kind of came in and got us out of a big spot and was able to handle the moment.”

The addition of Tepera adds another piece to the Cubs’ bullpen, which has gotten some additional reinforcements over the last few weeks. With right-hander Rowan Wick unlikely to break camp while dealing with a lingering intercostal injury, the bullpen could benefit from the extra support.

“I think depth pieces are going to be important for us,” Ross said. “And with [Wick] being on the shelf for a minute, and I think just in general this year, I think it’s going to take a lot of different arms to pitch big innings for us with the limited innings they were able to throw last year.

“The bullpen depth is always an important piece of any championship-caliber team. And if you want to get to where you want to go through 162, you’re going to need multiple arms down there in the bullpen. So guys that have been in the moment and have had success are very important.”

Strumpf, Weber added to spring roster

The Cubs added infield prospects Chase Strumpf and Andy Weber as non-roster invitees Friday. Strumpf hit .244 with three homers and 17 RBI over three levels in his first year in pro ball in 2019. The 21-year-old is the team’s ninth-ranked prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, and was the Cubs’ second-round pick out of UCLA in 2019.

Weber hit .275 with three homers and 59 RBI in 127 games for South Bend in 2019. He was the Cubs’ fifth-round pick out of Virginia in 2018.
