Luis Torrens makes the team
Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

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

So here’s what we know so far, or at least, one scenario...

P (SP)

Stroman, Taillon, Steele, Wesneski, Smyly (Hendricks). 5 (6)

P (RP)

Alzolay, Assad, Boxberger, Fulmer, (Hughes), Merryweather, Rucker, Thompson. 7 (8)


Barnhart, Gomes, Torrens 3


Hoerner, Hosmer, Madrigal, Mastrobuoni, Rios, Swanson, Wisdom 7


Bellinger, Happ, Mancini, Suzuki 4

26 (28)

26 man — 26. Hendricks and Hughes will require moves to fit them on the roster. As always, we await developments. Torrens can man other positions than catcher.
