Cubs notes: Samardzija turns a corner with Opening Day approaching
Jeff Samardzija appears to be on track for a promising Opening Day start, while Ian Stewart and Starlin Castro prepare for their return to Cactus League play.

Questions remain for Cubs at third base
The Cubs feel comfortable at first and second base and shorstop, but Ian Stewart 's health has raised question marks about what the team will do at third base.
No guarantee for injured Stewart at third base
Ian Stewart will be held out for 10-to-14 days with a hamstring strain, which could make things tough for him in a crowded competition at the Cubs third base position

The Cubs are sending Ian Stewart in for an MRI after he tweaked his left quad during an intrasquad scrimmage, but he's not the only player to watch as the Cubs begin spring training play.
Ian Stewart feels he owes the Cubs something
After having wrist surgery last summer and re-signing with the Cubs this offseason, Ian Stewart has showed up to Finch Park with something to prove to the organization.
8.6: HOF- Jerry Rice, RAW (Part 2)
