Previewing the National League.
A team-by-team look at the National League entering spring training, including key players each club acquired and lost, and dates of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and the full squad:
Matt Garza became the third starting pitcher on the Chicago Cubs' disabled list when he was shelved Tuesday with right elbow stiffness.
Veteran left-hander Doug Davis will start Saturday's game for the Chicago Cubs against the San Francisco Giants, his first appearance since elbow surgery in October.
The Chicago Cubs will place starting pitchers Randy Wells and Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled list because of arm injuries.
Chicago Cubs right-hander Carlos Silva has been told he will not be on the team's 25-man roster when the season starts Friday.
Kerry Wood and the Chicago Cubs finalized a $1.5 million, one-year contract Friday that sends the right-handed reliever back to the team he started his major league career with in 1998.
"Any time you go get an MRI, you get nervous," Cashner said. "To be out for two weeks, it could have been a lot worse."
