Cubs Spring Training: Day 1 Recap

Pitchers and Catchers may have been working out yesterday on reporting day, but today, Cubs Pitchers and Catchers had their first ‘official’ work out day at Spring Training. Now there is not a whole lot to report on because the position players aren’t supposed around until Sunday and then hold their first ‘official’ workout on Monday. Anyway, let’s take a look at some pictures and video from today out in Arizona.

  • Mike Montgomery is Preparing to be a Starter (@Kelly_Crull)

  • There is a David Ross Sighting (@MDGonzales)

  • Yu Darvish Looks Awesome in a Cubs Uniform (@ESPNChiCubs)

  • Justin Wilson is Working on Improving from Last Season (@Kelly_Crull)

  • The Invitees are Staying in Shape (@Cubs)

Overall, it would probably be a pretty successful day one out at Spring Training for the Cubs. Jon Lester can even still throw to FIRST BASE and still has it! It didn’t even require a glove toss which has happened on multiple occasions in his Cubs career. You can check out that video here. It was pretty much a typical day at work for the pitchers and catchers, but at least we know it’s getting closer to baseball season.
