News and Notes:

  • The leadership is admirable but, considering the source, hopefully he is listening to himself.
  • The Cubs have used their early round picks to stock up on pitching. The Sun-Times also reports that the club may have trouble signing first round pick Albert Almora.
  • Unlike the Cubs and their first round pick, the Astros are making progress toward signing No. 1 pick Carlos Correa.
  • Pittsburgh has recalled outfielder Alex Presley from Triple-A Indianapolis. Gorkys Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding roster move.
  • Indeed, let the negotiations begin. Concerning first round pick Mark Appel... good luck.
  • The rehabbing Lance Berkman met his teammates in Houston. Berkman is set to miss 8-10 weeks.
