Latest News
Jeff Samardzija gets little help in loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/14) Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija put together another strong start Friday, but still took the loss in a 4-1 loss.

Samardzija tossed seven innings for the fourth time in as many starts, but was ultimately downed by a lack of help from his defense. He allowed one earned run in the fifth inning, and then lost the game on a throwing error by second baseman Emilio Bonifacio which allowed the eventual winning runs to come across in the sixth.

Samardzija allowed three runs in seven innings, but only one was earned. He surrendered six hits and a pair of walks, while striking out seven batters on 114 pitches.

Samardzija has been the victim of terrible luck, as his record stands at 0-2 through four starts, despite twirling seven innings with two or fewer earned runs in each. He will put his 1.29 ERA up against the Diamondbacks in his next start, as he searches for his first win Wednesday. 

Jeff Samardzija goes seven strong in no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/12/14) Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija continued his recent success on Friday, but failed to factor into the decision in a 6-3 win over the Cardinals in extras.

Samardzija allowed a run-scoring single to Yadier Molina in the second frame for his only blemish of the night. He was charged with one run on six hits and no walks while striking out four over seven innings pitched. He tossed 98 pitches, 62 of which were strikes.

Samardzija lowered his ERA from 1.29 through his first three starts. He owns a 15:5 K:BB ratio over 21 innings pitched. He'll look to keep rolling Friday against Cincinnati.
Jeff Samardzija strikes out eight in quality start Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/14) Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija fell to 0-1 Saturday despite giving up just two earned runs on six hits and three walks in seven innings while striking out eight in his team's 2-0 loss to the Phillies.

Samardzija threw seven scoreless innings in his season debut but was saddled with a no-decision, and he ends up with a loss despite putting together another fine performance in his second start. He owns a 1.29 ERA and 11:5 K:BB ratio in 14 innings. Samardzija is on track to face the Cardinals in St. Louis Friday.

Jeff Samardzija throws seven scoreless in debut
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/31/14) Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija tossed seven shutout innings against the Pirates Monday.

Samardzija gave up five hits and two walks during the appearance. He struck out just three batters. Samardzija didn't receive any run support from the Cubs, and left the game in a scoreless tie. The Pirates later when on to win the game in extra innings, but Samardzija received a no decision.

Samardzija will take on the Phillies April 5.

Cubs value doesn't jive with inability to sign Jeff Samardzija
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/27/14) The announcement by Forbes Magazine that the Cubs rank fourth in MLB value at $1.2 billion doesn't mesh with an $89 million payroll that ranks 23rd or their inability to sign ace Jeff Samardzija, according to CSNChicago.com. That payroll includes $13 million they still owe to Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano.

The usually talkative Samardzija declined comment when asked about setting a deadline or negotiating during the season. If he remains unsigned, he will become a free agent after the 2015 season.

Samardzija, who has been the subect of heavy trade talks, did speak optimistically about the immediate future of the team. "We've put a great little crew together here," he said. "...The mentality of this camp ... has been outstanding. They've been hungry, which is exciting."

The right-hander has been a victim of non-support with the Cubs, though he has also proven a bit inconsistent. He owns a 17-26 record the last two seasons combined despite averaging more than a strikeout per inning.
