Everyone wrote about Jose Veras. I assume you didn't want to read a dozen versions of "Cubs sign Jose Veras."

  • Here's a feature on prospect Albert Almora. This writer says Almora is yet another impact prospect (video included). Watch the video to the end - it includes Almora chasing a foul ball and tumbling over the barrier. You can also catch some BP swings with the young outfielder.
  • The Cubs have brought some new pitching coaches into the organization.
