Jeff Samardzija gave up two runs and five hits in four innings against the Giants on Monday. He struck out five and walked none.
Although Samardzija has had his ups and downs this spring, there is no doubt that if he remains with the Cubs he will be their Opening Day starter. There have been many scouts around Cubs camp this spring as the trade rumors continue to circle around him, but regardless of where he pitches, he will still hold solid fantasy value.
