Welington Castillo hopes to be a key part for Cubs

He wants it. He believes it. He’s trying to show it. But Welington Castillo knows how this works. And he’s not about to claim he’s one of the Cubs’ core players at this point, much less their catcher of the future. “I feel like it,” he said. “But I can’t get too comfortable and say that I’m going to be here forever. This is a business. I have to keep working hard. Whatever is happening, you’ve just got to focus on getting better and try to win...

Rizzo returns to Cubs with a blast

CHICAGO – He’s baaaaack. Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit the game-winning, walk-off home run in his team’s 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night, 19 games after hitting his previous home run, also against the Reds. “Second pitch I just let loose,” Rizzo said of his ninth-inning at-bat against Pedro Villarreal. “Put a good swing on it.” In between the home runs, Rizzo sat on the bench for 18 games after his back stiffened up during one of the many rain delays the Cubs have endured this season.

Rapid Reaction: Cubs 1, Reds 0

CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 on Monday night. Here’s a quick look at the game.

Travis Wood pitched six scoreless innings, giving up just three hits, and the bullpen finished the shutout.

GM Jed Hoyer on Kris Bryant in 2015: 'Too early to speculate'

CHICAGO -- By now it shouldn’t come as any surprise the Chicago Cubs aren’t necessarily ready to hand the organization’s minor league player of the year, Kris Bryant, a starting job, at least not on April 6 when the season begins. When general manager Jed Hoyer was asked Monday what the chances of Bryant making the opening roster were, he said, “We’ll see how the roster comes together over the course of the offseason.

Cubs' pitching hope? Try Kane County

CHICAGO -- Wondering where the Chicago Cubs will find pitching in the coming years? The Midwest League champion Kane County Cougars are a good start. The Cubs' low Class-A affiliate had a monster season, going 91-49 in the regular season and then 7-0 in the playoffs en route to winning a title. No pitcher who started 10 or more games had an ERA over 3.36 during the regular season and in their seven playoff games Kane County gave up a total of 15 runs.

Pirates’ Russell Martin would be perfect fit for 2015 Cubs

PITTSBURGH — Of all the free agents who might be available to the Cubs this winter, one of the easiest to overlook also might be one of the best fits. Assuming the turnaround starts next year, as team officials suggest, and that building a long-term pitching staff starts to become a priority, then there might not be a better-equipped position player on the market than Pirates linchpin Russell Martin. It would take pulling the plug on Welington Castillo as the...
