Welcome to the Gameday! SS Addison Russell went yahtzee twice for the Cubbies while RHP Pierce Johnson threw seven one-run frames. LF Jesse Winker put together a four hit night, as did RF Brandon Nimmo and RF Hunter Renfroe.

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Gameday. John's annual pre-season prospect reviews have now come to a close, and you can find each team below. Just as a reminder, these are not new rankings. These are the pre-season prospect rankings but with comments from John on their 2015 performances. I will be leaving these here at the top of the Gameday for the next week or so before moving them to the Library section.
