A Look at Minor League Spring Schedule

Unlike years past, there is a noticeable difference in the head-to-head scheduling of minor league spring training games for Chicago Cubs prospects this season.

Traditionally the Cubs' minor league spring training teams, which are divided into four classification groups (Triple-A, Double-A, High Class-A and Low Class-A), have played exhibition games against most every Cactus League squad. That is not the case this spring.

The Cubs' minor leaguers this spring will play head-to-head games against only three teams—the San Francisco Giants, Oakland A's and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Cubs Vice President of Player Personnel Oneri Fleita explained the scheduling change.

"It cuts down on travel and allows us to get more work in of the morning," Fleita said.

Exhibition play begins Thursday with the Cubs' groups playing games against the same squads of their opponents (e.g. Triple-A vs. Triple-A, etc.). Minor league players break camp Monday, April 6. All start times Arizona Time.
