Hello, Cubs fans out there! I hope everyone is having a great day.

Check out the latest news, photos, and tidbits from spring training with the Cubbies with our latest edition of Cubs News and Notes.

We will try to have this feature several times a week so everyone gets a summary of what is happening regularly at Cubs camp.

Let's get right to all the Cubs notes!

In case you missed the game yesterday, the Cubs lost to the White Sox despite Jake Arrieta allowing only one run on five hits in 5 2/3 innings.

"I feel like he's gotten better every time he's taken the bump," Ross said to the media. "I think each start we've seen it trending the way we expected. The areas that we've pointed out that are keys for him have continued to kind of fall into place as he's worked on them."

Here is a few photos of the action:

Opening Day is almost here and Kyle 'Professor' Hendricks will be the starter on April 1 against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"At the end of the day, if you make good pitches, you're going to get good hitters out. That's my philosophy," Hendricks said to the media Tuesday.

“I just don’t want Chicago fans to see me differently, I think a lot of players get out of their cities and play with another team and when they come back to that city, they’re hated. And I don’t want to do that.”
