The Chicago Cubs are yet to decide which relievers will break camp with the team next week. With several pieces in place, it’s down to Stitched Chicago Cubs Jerseys the guys on the fringe – and those decisions look likely to come down to the wire.

Craig Kimbrel will enter the season as Chicago’s closer. Though Kimbrel’s first few outings were awful, his last two have looked better. If the right-hander can continue to improve, he will surely be fit for the team’s closer role. Brandon Workman, Dan Winkler and Ryan Tepera will likely receive spots as far as right-handers go. Southpaw Andrew Chafin seems like a lock regarding lefties, and Brad Wieck is equipped to compete for another lefty spot.

Still, the North Siders still have a couple spots to fill. One of those spots needs to go to 35-year old Pedro Strop.

Pedro Strop has what it takes to benefit the Chicago Cubs bullpen in 2021.

After signing late and missing significant time because of violating COVID-19 protocol, Strop finally made his first appearance for Chicago. He looked good, but the late start could impact his chances of making the roster.

Still vying for a bullpen spot, Strop pitched for Chicago on Saturday, and he looked nothing short of his classic Cubs self. In this outing, Strop gave up a walk, an infield single and two pop-ups. The lone run Strop gave up was scored on a wild pitch. While this was only one outing, his velocity alone could be a sign that the veteran still has something to offer.

In camp on a minor league deal, Strop’s debut comes with just a week left in spring training. With guys like Rowan Wick sidelined, there’s an opportunity here – but Strop will have to look sharp in any subsequent appearances to have a chance of breaking camp with the club. This offseason, Chicago went with a quantity over quality approach in assembling a pitching staff, so there’s intense competition for every spot.

If Strop can stay healthy after back-to-back injury-plagued seasons, he could be an asset to the Cubs. Perhaps his return to Chicago and being able to play with familiar faces will help him turn back the clock and play a critical role out of the pen one last time.

Rafael Ortega, who’s probably not going to make the Opening Day roster, continued his hot hitting with a two-hit game Wednesday afternoon. P.J. Higgins added a solo homer, but it wasn’t enough and the Cubs came up short Chicago Cubs Jerseys China against the Giants 7-6 at Scottsdale Stadium.

Alec Mills gave up a run in the first inning after retiring the first two hitters, but the Cubs got the run back in the top of the second.

Anthony Rizzo walked and advanced to second on a groundout, after which he scored on a single by Ortega:

One out later, Taylor Gushue walked and Higgins was hit by a pitch, but the inning was then called because Nick Tropeano had thrown 29 pitches.

Mills was removed with one out in the third, having allowed three hits and a run. It seemed like a successful outing for him, but the jury’s still out on whether he’ll be the fifth starter or whether he’ll be in a hybrid starter/long relief role. Here’s one of the seven outs Mills recorded:

In the fourth, Rizzo reached base again with a single, but was thrown out at the plate on a double by Ortega, who took third on the play and scored on a single by Matt Duffy to give the Cubs a 2-1 lead.

Brandon Workman, likely to be the Cubs’ primary setup man, issued two walks in his inning of work, but got out of it without a run thanks in part to a double play.

Higgins homered off Wandy Peralta in the top of the fifth to make it 3-1:

But the Giants took the lead back in the bottom of the fifth on a single, a throwing error, another base hit and a two-run homer by Wilmer Flores off Andrew Chafin, not a good day for Chafin.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Cubs starting players departed en masse, but Dan Winkler, who is expected to be in the Opening Day bullpen, served up a two-run homer to Jason Krizan to make it 6-3 Giants. A couple of walks and a single by Andy Weber in the seventh made it 6-4.

Manuel Rodriguez, a 24-year-old righthander who throws up to 99 miles per hour, threw a scoreless inning (the seventh) in his first outing of the spring. He faced two former Cubs, Arismendy Alcantara (walk) and Jason Vosler (strikeout), and eventually walked the bases loaded before David Ross ended the inning on a pitch count. Rodriguez has talent — he averaged 12.4 strikeouts per nine innings in 35 appearances at High-A in 2019 — but is clearly a work in progress.

The bottom of the eighth, thrown by Robert Stock, was also halted on a pitch count after Stock walked in a run.

The Cubs put a pair of runs across in the ninth inning on a bases-loaded double by Alfonso Rivas that bounced into the stands. Had it not done that, it would have cleared the bases and tied the game, but the runner on first had to hold at third. The last out of the game was made on a spectacular catch on a line drive by Brennen Davis that would have given the Cubs the lead.

The overall good news, though, is that Cubs starting pitchers are having an outstanding spring to date:

Keep up the good work, guys.

Thursday, the Cubs continue their two-day excursion to Scottsdale ballparks as they take on the Rockies at Salt River Fields. Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs and former Giant Dereck Rodriguez will go for the Rockies. Game time is 2:10 p.m. CT and TV coverage will be on ROOT Sports Rocky Mountain with the Rockies announcers.

Kyle who?

I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Kyle Schwarber certainly left a lasting impression during his time with the Chicago Cubs. But his replacement, Joc Pederson, is hoping to make his own mark on the North Side this season.

The former Dodgers outfielder is tearing the cover off the ball this spring – and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. In a recent Baseball America piece (subscription required) that accumulated 25 top performers this spring, Pederson earned Custom Chicago Cubs Jerseys some high praise from an anonymous scout.

“He’s playing on another freaking planet right now. Home runs, doubles, bunting against the shift; he’s playing with a chip on his shoulder and rightfully so … I’d be shocked if he didn’t have a big year.”

Now, the scout had more to say than that, praising his effort in the outfield and on the base paths, as well as pointing out his quality at-bats against left-handed pitching this spring. Really, Pederson has checked every box imaginable in Cactus League action, doing everything he can to give Cubs fans a lot of hope heading into the regular season.

Cubs hoping for a new look with Joc Pederson in left field
The non-tender of Schwarber drew plenty of fire early in the offseason. But the new front office was looking to shake things up offensively – and once some more funds were freed up, Jed Hoyer brought in Pederson, who was looking for the chance to play every single day. He’s never had that chance in Los Angeles and is hoping he can establish himself as a major piece of this Cubs lineup.

Now there are going to be some bumps along the way. He’s not suddenly going to regularly face lefties for the first time in his career and rake. But over the course of the season, we could (and hopefully, will) see some major strides from the 28-year-old slugger. If we’re really lucky, he’ll showcase some more stretches like we’ve gotten from his already this spring.
