Catching up with Cubs
GLENDALE, Ariz. — One day after Dioner Navarro homered in his first Cactus League at-bat for the Cubs, Welington Castillo smoked his first spring home run Monday against the Dodgers.
"If he asks, I'm going to let him know, 'I hit one longer than yours,' " Castillo said.
Suffice it to say there won't be any crowds on Waveland Avenue this summer waiting for shots to leave the yard off the bats of Cubs catchers. But the organization feels confident the tandem of Castillo and Navarro will provide more offense than last year's season-opening duo of Geovany Soto and Steve Clevenger, while also guiding a veteran pitching staff.
