Chicago Cubs

Cubs vs Pirates Series Preview: (9/13-9/15)

The offense has been better: Bryan Reynolds , Starling Marte , and Josh Bell are all having very good years at the plate.

Theo Epstein has recently spoken about his disappointment in his club's lackluster play.

His change dives down out of the zone, generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' changeups, has slight cut action, is slightly firmer than usual and results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers' changeups.

He surrendered just a solo homer to Kris Bryant in seven innings this August in Pittsburgh.

Sean's Note: Marvel made his debut last week allowing two runs in five innings against the Cardinals.

The right handed pitcher has always had low home run rates in all his minor league spots.
