Guzman and Gray Sidelined with Minor Injuries

Cubs’ pitchers and catchers officially reported to Fitch Park on Wednesday, while the news on Ted Lilly was positive (in more than one way), the Cubs announced two minor setbacks in the bullpen.

Angel Guzman had arthroscopic surgery on his knee two weeks ago after tearing his meniscus during a workout in Venezuela last month. Jeff Gray suffered a moderate groin strain during fielding practice this week and is expected to be a couple of weeks behind.

Angel Guzman is expected to be ready for Opening Day according to Jim Hendry. Jeff Gray’s injury is a minor one and is expected to take it easy over the first couple weeks of camp.

Both Jeff Gray and Angel Guzman are in-house candidates to serve as setup men to Carlos Marmol.

Quote of the Day

You can’t create magic … don’t deserve magic until you play the game properly. It shouldn’t come your way. And, it won’t come your way. But, if you play the game properly, then all of a sudden, these little things start rolling in your direction and you start expecting them to happen on a daily basis because you’ve earned it.” – Joe Maddon
