3/24 Wells, Ramy & Nady updates
Randy Wells struck out seven and gave up three hits over six innings in a Minor League game Wednesday at Fitch Park. At one point, the right-hander retired 13 in a row. He started there to get on schedule for the regular season. Aramis Ramirez, still nursing a sore right tricep, got five at-bats and hit a solo homer over the left center field fence. He was projected to start at third base on Friday when the Cubs are at HoHoKam. Xavier Nady played outfield for the first time this spring and hit a RBI double. He also was hit in the right hand but it was not serious, just a bruise.
The Cubs also got good news on Angel Guzman’s surgery, which was done Tuesday by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Guzman underwent a shoulder stabilization procedure done arthroscopically. The right-hander will miss all of this season.
