Abbatacola: Cubs Game Postponed, Cashner And Wells ‘On Schedule’
By Matt Abbatacola–
CHICAGO (WSCR) Game 3 in the series was postponed due to the forecast of rain the rest of the afternoon and throughout Wednesday evening. The game has been rescheduled for Monday, June 27th at 1:20 p.m.
Looking ahead, the Cubs begin a seven games in seven days road trip starting tomorrow in Arizona. Today’s starter, Casey Coleman, is projected to start Game 4 in Arizona on Sunday. It was a projected start for last night’s losing pitcher, James Russell. Mike Quade, pitching coach, Mark Riggins, and GM Jim Hendry will discuss options for Monday’s start in Los Angeles.
On another note, starting pitchers, Andrew Cashner and Randy Wells continue to work their way back to the rotation. They are in a throwing program of soft toss and have reached a distance of 90 feet. According to Quade, they are “on schedule,” although that schedule has not been made known. He even said if they need to rehab in Mesa, the team would leave the two pitchers in Arizona on this upcoming road trip. Both pitchers feel “good.”
