Ben Zobrist had a whirlwind winter after winning WS MVP. His surreal moments included appearing on The Tonight Show, getting a standing ovation at a Bulls game, doing about "3 days of Disney World in like 6 hours", going to the White House and meeting Barack/Michelle Obama then speaking at the National Prayer breakfast and meeting Trump/Pence a few weeks later. He says he's ready for baseball again.

More rain today but not an issue because of @Cubs new facilities! In years past we'd be there all day getting BP and Bullpens in

Joe Maddon says he won't pitch his top 4 starters in spring games until March after the Cubs long postseason last year. No.5 type guys Mike Montgomery and Brett Anderson will get innings right away but Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, Kyle Hendricks and John Lackey won't see the mound in a Cactus League game for a bit. Cubs begin playing on Feb.25.

As Sunday afternoon arrives, think about this. It's the last Sunday without a baseball game until almost Thanksgiving!

To me, the larger issue with Blake Swihart is how much the Red Sox messed with him by moving him to outfield. Ankle injury while playing left field cost him almost entire season; throwing mechanics altered from what he was used to as catcher.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

On Blake Swihart, whose throwing issues continued in live BP today: He was always likely to open season in Triple-A because of contract status (Swihart has options; Christian Vazquez does not). Throwing issue likely curable, but reinforces value of going back to minors.

Watch the extent of Cubs practice on Sunday. Rain has washed away most of the weekend drills.

The Giants said goodbye to outfielder Gregor "The White Shark" Blanco over the winter, but signed closer "Mark the Shark" Melancon as a free agent. That's fine with pitcher Jeff Samardzija, who has first dibs on the nickname. "We work with multiple sharks here," Samardzija said. "I don't necessarily have any specific genome."

Watch Kyle Schwarber discuss catching a bullpen session for the first time in about 12 months. He only caught one pitcher (John Lackey) then took off the gear but he says it's a start.

Inclement weather will force the Indians to conduct the majority of their first full workout indoors today. Get this -- the high in Cleveland on Saturday was 69 degrees. Here in Goodyear, Arizona, the high was 57 degrees.

At first glance, the Cardinals seem crazy to call third base an open competition. One of the players vying for the spot, Jedd Gyorko, led the team with 30 home runs. The other, Jhonny Peralta, is 34 and had a negative WAR (-0.4) in 2016. But the Cardinals think Peralta's down year was largely a product of a torn thumb ligament in spring training. They saw it play out with Yadier Molina, who struggled in the first half and batted .365 after the All-Star break. "It seems the more repetitions they get or just time they get the strength back to where they look like themselves," manager Mike Matheny said. "They get that bat speed back and the power."
