Matt Murton (appendectomy) singled and doubled in a simulated game against Jon Lester on Tuesday.
Murton signed a minor league deal with the Cubs over the winter after spending several years in Japan, but he required an emergency appendectomy in late Feburary and has yet to make his Cactus League debut. He's still ramping things up with running and fielding, so he's running out of time to showcase himself to the Cubs and other teams. "It is frustrating," said Murton. "But it’s something that’s outside of my control, so I can’t really get caught up in what window is left or not left. I’ve just got to try to live in the moment, occupy today and do the best that I can in that moment. And let the rest of it figure itself out." Mar 16 - 10:16 AM
