Corey Koskie News:
According to multiple sources, Koskie will make his decision on Saturday if he will try to make his comeback with the Cubs. Koskie "went home to ponder his future" after meeting with Cubs trainers on Friday. Yesterday Koskie was replaced by Bobby Scales after leaving in the third inning when he was not feeling good.
According to the Tribune, "The Cubs have not made an official diagnosis, but Koskie's history of concussions, combined with Thursday's episode, could make his decision simple."
According to the Tribune, Esteban German is not going to make the opening day roster. That now leaves Aaron Miles or Mike Fontenot as Ramirez's backup.
