Spring Training Notes

This is news from spring training:

Koyie Hill caught Rich Harden's outing and people think that he has the edge to be the backup catcher.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, Angel Guzman is a viable candidate once again for the Cubs' pen along with Kevin Hart, Jeff Samardzija, Chad Gaudin, Chad Fox and David Patton.

According to the Tribune, "It looks like Jeff Samardzija could lose out to Angel Guzman for the final bullpen spot, and Rule 5 pick David Patton might not make it despite a 0.93 ERA."

The Tribune explained, David Patton could make the team if Luis Vizcaino or Chad Gaudin suffers a injury or goes on the DL.

According to the Sun Times, Chad Fox, Mike Stanton and Randy Wells is a long shot to make the bullpen on opening day.

Jeff Samardzija has pitched his self out of the bullpen due to his last couple outings.

Lou Pinella said Angel Guzman has "thrust himself back in the mix" with his recent outings.
