The Good: Edwin Jackson made his Cub debut and although he gave up a couple of hits, he pitched two scoreless innings. After giving up eight walks on Monday, Cubs pitchers walked just one on Tuesday. Outfielder Dave Sappelt, in a fight for a roster spot, homered and singled. Christian Villanueva also went deep. The Cubs executed a couple of rundowns in the field as well.
What we learned: Jackson said he was throwing fastballs and that's what hitters are "tracking" in spring hence a couple of hard hit balls. Sappelt had two hits off right-handed pitching which can only help his cause to make the team.
What's next: The 3-1 Cubs host the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday.
Rapid Reaction: Edwin Jackson was solid in his Cubs debut.
