Welcome to today’s episode of Cub Tracks news and notes™. Here we have material from current beat writers, bloggers, and the occasional in-house habitué, moonlighting. These pieces center around #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball.

So Seiya Suzuki, Chris Martin and Stephen Brault are Cubs now. Brault is probably in the mix for the fifth starter job, and at the very least is a lefty arm for the pen. Suzuki pushes Heyward to the bench, at least against left-handers, if not everyone. I’m not seeing the downside of that right now. Haha Brault could even DH in a pinch. David Robertson? Sure, why not try him.
