First intrasquad matchup set for tomorrow


The Cubs spent a quiet, rainy last day at the Fitch Park practice facility on Wednesday. A steady drizzle and gray skies limited the team to a few rounds of batting practice in the cages. After workouts, the players grabbed their gear and headed over to HoHoKam Stadium, where they’ll spend the rest of Spring Training.

The first spring game of the season, an intrasquad matchup between the blue and white teams, gets underway tomorrow at 1 p.m. local time. Prospects Chris Rusin and minor league pitcher of the year Nick Struck will start tomorrow’s game. Rusin will be backed up by Cory Wade, who spent the last two years with the Yankees, and Trey McNutt. Struck will be folowed by Robert Whitenack and Rafael Dolis.
