Many Cubs are already in camp, according to Carrie Muskat:

Cubs pitchers and catchers report on Sunday to Fitch Park, although many have already been working out in camp, including Matt Garza, Carlos Zambrano and John Grabow. The first workout will be Monday.

Among the players working with hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo on Saturday were Colvin, Marlon Byrd, Darwin Barney, Jim Adduci, Steve Clevenger, Chris Robinson, and Micah Gibbs.

The Fitch Park facility has been improved with the addition of four covered batting cages, so that six are now available instead of two. Plus, the screens can be moved and up to eight pitchers can throw in just in case there is inclement weather.

Also in that link, Carrie reports that Carlos Marmol has passed his physical and he and the team are still working on what is likely to be a multi-year deal -- so once again, there will be no Cubs who went to an arbitration hearing this year, leaving Ryan Theriot's appearance there last year as the only Cub to go to a hearing since Mark Grace in 1993.

The first spring training game is two weeks from today. Play ball!
