Baker’s shaky start leaves Cubs’ rotation spot in flux
Pitching carousel continues
PHOENIX – As Scott Baker proved Sunday, the Cubs' starting rotation still is a work in progress. And it may be for some time.
Baker, a free-agent signee who had elbow surgery nearly a year ago, made his first start of the Cactus League and was unceremoniously used for batting practice by the A's.
Originally scheduled for two innings, Baker faced only six batters before reaching his pitch limit. Three of the A's batters had hits and two more had walks in the three-run outing.
