    Pen would have looked a lot better with Fields and. Grilli.

    Vizcaino has been throwing since September I believe, but he's viewed as a SP at this point.

    So what are we currently looking at in the pen?

    Marmol (Barring trade)
    Fujikawa
    Camp
    Russell
    Rondon

    Then a list of maybe guys:
    Cabrera
    Bowden
    Dolis
    Beliveau

    So we are looking at possibly 2-4 openings depending on if Marmol stays or goes.

    Is it Cabrera that is possibly going back to SP?

    Aren't Cabrera and Bowden both being stretched out?

    I could have dreamed this but I thought I remember someone saying that they planned to use Bowden out of the pen but it is nice to have him stretched out just in case.

    EDIT: From everything I'm reading it sounds like it is more Bowden stretching himself out then the Cubs pushing for it. Think he may end up being the long guy.

    I know he's been getting starts in the Dominican Winter League. In 6 starts: 27.2 IP, 3.25 ERA, 26 H, 10 ER, 16 K, 11 BB

    Ya, they've already said Bowden will be used out of the pen this year.

    Not a bad thing. He was solid after coming back from AAA last year. One thing is for sure, we won the Marlon Byrd trade.

    The fact that Hoyer said we were in on Keppinger and Chavez gives me hope that we can get Reynolds. I wonder how they feel about his defense at 3B though.

    Marmol - still worries me as a closer
    Fujikawa - we have no idea if his stuff translates to the MLB game
    Camp - meh
    Russell - only solid pen arm
    Rondon - Rule 5 Draft selection

    Yeah we have a great bullpen

    He was non-tendered. Don't think they have re-signed him or anything yet.
