With the announcement of MLB’s health and safety protocols for 2021, the league also announced Tuesday the dates of first spring training workouts for ballclubs.
The Cubs are scheduled to have their first pitcher and catcher workouts next Wednesday, February 17 and the first full-squad workouts Monday, February 22. Other team’s dates are in the same general range:
MLB also announced that due to health and safety protocols, spring training facilities will not be open to members of the media until the day of each club’s first full squad workout. Additionally, 2021 spring training Photo Days will be closed to media. We’ll have access to some photos from Cubs Photo Day that I’ll post here.
MLB’s release on this also noted:
First workout dates, as well as Photo Days, are subject to change as necessary based on health and safety protocols.
I’ll have more information on Spring Training as it becomes available.
