2/28 Maholm’s back; bunting tourney continues
Paul Maholm was back in the Cubs clubhouse, feeling much better after a nasty bout with the flu. The pitcher couldn’t eat for two days but said the problem was “nothing major.” He did throw a 40-pitch bullpen on Monday and then went home so he didn’t infect the rest of the team. On Tuesday, Maholm will face Rodrigo Lopez in his first round bunting tourney match.
“I guess we’ll be the marquee matchup,” Maholm said.
Second bunting round action on Tuesday includes:
Matt Szczur vs. Adrian Cardenas
Jeff Beliveau vs. Lendy Castillo
Jonathan Mota vs. Blake Lalli
Trey McNutt vs. Rafael Dolis
