2/24 Live BP
Friday was the Cubs’ first full squad workout and the position players found themselves at a disadvantage. They had to face pitchers, who have been in camp since Feb. 19. Brett Jackson’s assignment? Carlos Marmol. What’s even worse for Jackson is that this is the third straight spring he’s had to face Marmol in the live BP session.
“At least I fouled one off,” Jackson said.
Ryan Dempster, Lendy Castillo, Travis Wood, Jay Jackson, Jeff Beliveau and Trey McNutt also threw live BP.
