2/28 Cactus League start

Randy Wells will get things started for the Cubs when they open Cactus League play Thursday against Oakland at HoHoKam Park. Lou Piniella said Wells will be followed by Sean Marshall, J.R. Mathes, Mike Parisi and Esmailin Caridad.

* Angel Guzman threw 25 to 30 pitches from 45 feet on Sunday in the batting cage and felt good. If there’s no discomfort in his shoulder, he will throw on the mound Monday. “His shoulder felt a lot better,” Piniella said.

* Sunday’s workout was cut short because of the rain. John Grabow faced some hitters for a live BP session and that was it. “If we were going to lose a day of work, today was the day,” Piniella said.

Hoping for all the best for Caridad, I liked what I saw in him last year and I think the Cubs may be counting heavily on him considering the questionable health of Guzman.

angel guzman could easily be the best setup man in baseball. the shoulder thing is worrisome.
