3/1 Cubs notebook

Tyler Colvin will make his first spring start at first base Friday when the Cubs travel to Surprise to face the Royals. Colvin has played outfield in games so far but the team wants to see if he can sub there.

* Outfielder Fernando Perez was sidelined with a bruised left shoulder injured during a diving catch on Monday. Lou Montanez will get more playing time while Perez heals. The concern was that Perez had hurt his left wrist, which required surgery in March 2009.

* Looking ahead, Carlos Silva will start Wednesday vs. the Brewers, Carlos Zambrano get his second start Thursday against the Rangers, and Matt Garza get his first start and second appearance on Friday vs. the Royals.

* The Cubs have made six errors in their first two games but manager Mike Quade hasn’t ordered extra drills.

“Whenever you make mistakes, there’s a concern,” Quade said. “The first week of the season, I’ll look at positives. Whether we win or lose, it is about the process. You hate losing but I looked at all the names I had down there that I was pleased with, whether it was at-bats or pitching or defense, in spite of the errors we made, and I left with a smile and that’s the main thing. When you start losing a lot of games because we’re sloppy from start to finish or our key guys aren’t swinging the bats, I’d be more alarmed.”

* Angel Guzman is on schedule to throw a live BP session on Wednesday. He underwent shoulder surgery one year ago.

“Miracles can happen,” Quade said of the right-hander, whose career has been interrupted by elbow and shoulder injuries. “Let’s see if he can’t get healthy and get back throwing the way he did.”
