Welcome to today’s edition of Cub Tracks news and notes™, a greatest-hits from Chicago-style beat writers and bloggers, ground from #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball, overheated, and then cold-brewed overnight for maximum flavor.

The Cubs faced the Colorado Rockies in the opening game of a three-game home series and came out victorious on the strength of another excellent Marcus Stroman start and a couple of timely hits. Zach McKinstry is trying to get himself higher on the depth chart as he rakes in the late going.

It’s all a distraction, of course, from the postseason dynamic, but a welcome distraction for this writer. Pretty soon, 2022 will be in the rearview.

Seiya Suzuki’s X-rays are negative, you should be happy to know. Nico Hoerner is getting advice. Brennen Davis earned a little more playing time.
