Shelby Miller has had an up-and-down career, but it’s been mostly down in recent years. When the Cubs signed him to a minor league deal this offseason, nobody thought much of it, but he is turning heads in camp. Can it lead to a roster spot?

It’s always important to remember that spring training results should be taken with a grain of salt, but so far this spring he has pitched in Wholesale Chicago Cubs Jerseys four games, made one start and has a 1.29 ERA with eight strikeouts in seven innings. He credits his success to a slider that has become his main out pitch this spring.

We recently noted Miller is a possible candidate to round out the rotation for the Cubs in the 2021 season. That’s likely a long shot, but bullpen roles and spots are constantly changing, and if he keeps pitching like this, it’ll be hard to deny Miller an opportunity.

Kyle Hendricks, Zach Davies, Trevor Williams and Jake Arrieta will take up four spots, and guys like Miller, Adbert Alzolay and Alec Mills will be fighting for the last two spots. The Cubs are still waiting on the status of Alzolay’s option, and that could dictate some of the pitching decisions for this years team.

Miller has battled injuries and a lack of success for the past four years. In 2017 and 2018, he started four games each and missed most of the year with injury. In 2019, he made eight starts and 19 appearances with Rangers, posting an 8.59 ERA. He last saw success in 2015 with the Braves, pitching to a 3.02 ERA before the wheels came off with the Diamondbacks the next season, and he’s never recovered.

Cubs: Time is on Miller’s side
Miller is still only 30, so he has time to revive his career. Maybe his days as a starting pitcher are done, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have success as a relief pitcher for the rest of his career. If the Cubs can find a diamond in the rough with Miller, that will just give them another weapon to use moving forward. Baseball is a long season and the right-hander will give Chicago innings at some point, whether that be out of the rotation or the pen.

Miller was once a power pitcher that would use his fastball to blow hitters away. Once hitters started timing it up and hitting it, he started to lose his success. The development of this slider will help him become a better pitcher rather than just a hard thrower.

Miller still may not make the team, given the sheer number of guys in the mix for a bullpen spot and the relative depth of the rotation candidates, but he is doing his best to make sure he opens his eyes to get, if nothing else, a long, hard look from Chicago.

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.

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.

Cubs: Ranking the top candidates to lead the team in home runs
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.
