Cubs' Matt Szczur impresses Joe Maddon


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) On Sunday, Cubs manager Joe Maddon praised the work of outfielder Matt Szczur, who is 8 of 21 with three home runs this spring, MLB.com reports.

"What a great kid," Maddon said. "He plays the game properly. Could you get more eager? I don't think so. And now he's hitting balls out of sight. Great baserunner with great speed. Throws well, outstanding outfielder and on and on."

Maddon is listed as the No. 2 option in left field and the No. 4 option in center field on the team's depth chart but is seeing plenty of action this spring.

"What's been good for me is I'm playing every day," Szczur said. "However many games we've had, I've played every day, whether it's coming in off the bench or getting a start. So that's been good for me, getting one or two ABs a day or three or four. It's been good to see live pitching and get to attack it every day. I can just honestly control what I can control and play as best as I can. I'll fit in somewhere. No matter what it is I'll fight and come up and be able to play any sort of role."
