Jackson, Wood among five vying for final spot in Cubs' rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) With Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicating Monday that Kyle Hendricks has a spot in the rotation locked up behind Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta and Jason Hammel, that leaves Travis Wood, Edwin Jackson, Felix Doubront, Jacob Turner and Tsuyoshi Wada vying for the final spot in the team's rotation.
“Everybody understands what’s going on here. There are no dummies," Maddon said, per MLB.com. “The line I like is that, I’m not going to lie to you. If I tell you the truth, you might be upset with me for about a week or two but then you’re going to be OK. But if I lie to you, you’re going to hate me forever.
“They’re very competitive and the fact we have a lot of folks for some really narrow choices, it’s going to be an interesting spring. I know that competition normally brings out the best in everyone.”
Maddon: Cubs' Wada looks 'very, very healthy' Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada (hamstring) threw a live batting practice session Saturday with no issues, MLB.com reports.
"I thought he threw the ball really well," manager Joe Maddon said. "I did not see any kind of restriction. He looked very, very healthy. The ball had a lot of movement on it. He looked good for his first time out after having been restricted because of his leg."
Wada had been dealing with a tight left hamstring that caused him to miss a pitching session last weekend. He went 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA and 57:19 K:BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings in his first season with the Cubs last year.
Cubs P Tsuyoshi Wada has hamstring tightness
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada missed his scheduled pitching session Sunday due to hamstring tightness, according to MLB.com.
It doesn't appear to be a serious injury.
In 2014, Wada started 13 games for the Cubs and went 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA.
Cubs re-sign pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada
|(11/3/14) The Cubs bolstered their rotation by agreeing to terms Monday with pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada for the 2015 season, according to Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com.
During his first MLB season in 2014, Wada started 13 games for the Cubs. He went 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA.
Cubs set final rotation plans, send Edwin Jackson to bullpen
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/23/14) The Cubs announced the probable starters for the final series of the season Tuesday, tabbing Eric Jokisch to face the Brewers Friday, Tsuyoshi Wada to take the mound Saturday and Kyle Hendricks to pitch the season's final game Sunday.
With the news, Edwin Jackson has been moved to the bullpen for the remainder of the season.
|2014 summary: Tsuyoshi Wada was a part of the Cubs' midseason rotation makeover, initially spurred by their trade of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland. In going 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA, Wada fared well but he averaged only 5 1/3 innings per start and failed to last as many as six innings in eight of his 13 starts.|
Playing time status: Wada will compete for one of the spots at the back of the Cubs' rotation. Even in he earns a starting role and remains in the rotation all season, he may not throw as many as 180 innings.
2015 outlook: In his first major league season, Wada was reasonably effective, though he may have less success in overcoming inefficiency and a low ground ball rate going forward. There's little about Wada's profile that stands out and makes him worth targeting in standard mixed leagues. Given the uncertainty around his role, it would be a reach to draft Wada before the late rounds in deeper leagues.
