2/22 Four missing from Cubs camp

The Cubs are still missing four players from camp: Aramis Ramirez, Alfonso Soriano, Derrek Lee and Starlin Castro. Monday is reporting day, and the four simply have to check in with the team to say they’re in Arizona. The first full squad workout will be Tuesday.

The team isn’t concerned that Castro, the super hyped 19-year-old shortstop, isn’t in Mesa. He had a long season in 2009, playing for Class A Daytona, Double-A Tennessee, then the Arizona Fall League. He finished up with eight games for Leones del Escogido in the Dominican Republic from Nov. 24-Dec. 2. Former Cubs outfielder Moises Alou was the Escogido team’s GM. Castro finally slowed down, going 4-for-22.
