Yu Darvish may have been a little winded after his start today as he didn't expect to run the bases. After he singled, he was doubled to third: "I'd rather walk home than run home so I'll practice that," he joked. Darvish threw 75 pitches as he continues to build up arm strength. He gave up one run in five innings.

Cubs reliever Pedro Strop (calf) says he should be ready to get into a game next week and believes he will be ready for the regular season as well -- but understands that decision isn't up to him. He commented on how good the Cubs rotation is: "I'm pretty sure those guys are going to be throwing 7 innings every game. We're (relievers) going to be asking for innings to pitch."
