Cubs

It's been a wild year for Kyle Hendricks, who went from the Cubs' Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2013 to perhaps their top major league pitcher in 2014.
Edwin Jackson, who has been sidelined nearly a month, will return to the Cubs rotation on Friday. Unfortunately, he'll be up against the NL Cy Young favorite, Clayton Kershaw.
Kris Bryant wishes his trip to Wrigley Field on Tuesday was to suit up and take the field for the Cubs, but the organization's top prospect understands his time is coming to show off his talents.

    Once Yu Darvish signs with a team and comes to America, he'll be faced with a culture shock on and off the field. But Darvish is familiar with pressure, and it won't have much of an impact explains Patrick Mooney.
