Kinsler To Begin Season On The DL

All signs point to another stint on the DL for Ian Kinsler. Since spraining his ankle, he hasn't been able to run, only jog. I don't think it's too serious, but Kinsler and the Rangers are being cautious. Kinsler played in a career-high 144 games last season.

As expected, Sam Fuld was optioned to AAA. Has-been Chad Tracy got the last roster spot while Xavier Nady (who is already hurt) and Tyler Colvin will be the Cubs' reserve outfielders. Bold prediction: Colvin's OBP will be lower than .335. I cannot emphasize enough how tuchus backwards this franchise is.

Gabe Kapler was 1-3 with 2 runs scored against the Red Sox.

Adam Stern was 1-3 with 1 BB against the Angels.

John Grabow picked up his 2nd save of the Spring. He pitched 2/3 of an inning against the Mariners on 1 hit.
