Olt (shoulder) hit his first home run of the spring Tuesday and is feeling more and more confident after last year's struggles, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. "I've been feeling good at the plate the last couple days and as long as I'm feeling comfortable, I think good things will come," he said.
Baez, who hit his first home run of the spring Monday, could get a few extra looks while Starlin Castro (hamstring) is on the shelf, but the Cubs aren't going to change their long-term plans when it comes to promoting him, ESPN Chicago reports.
Olt continues to be limited to DH duties due to tenderness in his right shoulder, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. "He's throwing fine and he's been working at all the positions getting himself ready," manager Rick Renteria said Friday.
Barney hit a home run in his 2014 spring debut Friday. "I'm trying to stay short and hit line drives," he said afterward. "My swing allowed me to do that and I'm happy about that. It's early, it's just one pitch. I've got a lot of work to do."
