3/28 Quick hits

Cubs manager Lou Piniella missed Saturday’s game because he was feeling ill. A flu bug has been going around several of the camps this spring. Bench coach Alan Trammell was in charge for the Cubs game against the Rockies.

Other notes:

  • Sean Marshall and Chad Gaudin each had side sessions in Mesa. Chad Fox, Kevin Gregg and Luis Vizcaino pitched in a Minor League game at Fitch Park.
  • Mike Fontenot started at third and Aaron Miles at short on Saturday. Trammell said both need more than one game to get comfortable on the left side of the infield. “You need to get tested,” Trammell said.
  • Yes, that was first base coach Matt Sinatro wearing No. 80. He forgot his jersey in Mesa.
  • Former Cubs pitcher Jason Marquis will be either the third or fourth starter for the Rockies.
