Closing out the Reds
Right-hander Bronson Arroyo (6-7, 5.82) takes the hill for Cincinnati
In a pinch
After the always friendly Alan Trammell posted the lineup in the clubhouse, Big Z walked over and wrote his name in the “Extras” section. He would be our only switch-hitting pinch-hitter available today …
He’s No. 1
First-round pick Andrew Cashner signed his first professional contract at Wrigley Field this morning. He just got done touring the clubhouse, and a number of guys went up to him to welcome him to the organization. He’ll play some catch on the field and talk with the media before the game.
Check back tomorrow for Zach Martin’s full report on the signing.
