3/22 Cubs extra bases
GM Jim Hendry, assistant GM Randy Bush, manager Mike Quade, bench coach Pat Listach, and pitching coach Mark Riggins met Tuesday morning to go over the roster. We’re not expecting any moves until possibly Wednesday.
* Augie Ojeda felt instant relief after receiving a cortisone shot in his back. He’s been bothered by back spasms. Ojeda will try to hit off a batting tee on Wednesday, and if he continues to progress, could get in a game Friday.
* Aramis Ramirez was at HoHoKam Park to work out Tuesday. He has not played since Friday because of a high fever.
* Carlos Zambrano said he had a good turnout Monday night at his home run derby fundraiser in Gilbert, Ariz., despite the rainy weather. Zambrano is next scheduled to pitch Wednesday against the Athletics in Mesa.
* Justin Berg and Carlos Marmol both threw in the Minor League camp on Tuesday. Other pitchers scheduled to throw Tuesday in the Cubs’ game against the Dodgers include John Grabow, Scott Maine, Sean Marshall and Jeff Samardzija.
