The news that the Chicago Cubs’ Kris Bryant was dealing with “shoulder fatigue” worries some fans. But it shouldn’t. I mean, he didn’t start because of it, and still hit two home runs in that game. Bryant is simply going through what many young players do in camp, and the Cubs are simply being cautions. But it appears this may be the only thing that can slow Bryant down.
There’s lots of talk about what the Cubs COULD do this year, but what should we expect? The upside is high, but it’s a team filled with many variables and a lot of unknowns. Regardless, this team should show noticeable improvement over last years team and possibly push for a spot in the postseason.
Matt Szczur has always been a well-regarded prospect in the Cubs’ system, and has spent some time with the big league club. But this spring, he seems to be on a mission to prove he’s more than that. Szczur is making a strong case to make the Opening Day roster, adding power to his game that wasn’t always present. The question remaining is how many outfielders the Cubs will carry.
Even after being roughed up in his last outing for six runs, Cubs’ ace Jon Lester keeps the same approach and the same even kile. While not a vocal leader, it’s that confidence the team hopes will rub off in him being a “silent leader” for a team with high expectations in 2015.
