Cactus League report: Lance Lynn on Michael Kopech’s ‘awesome’ stuff — and the Cubs are looking for a new voice at Wrigley Field

Jackie Bradley Jr. is slated to make his debut with the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday, according to manager Craig Counsell. Bradley signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Brewers, who coincidentally had to sideline center fielder Lorenzo Cain with a quadriceps injury. When Cain is healthy, the Brewers will have a four-man outfield that also includes former MVP Christian Yelich and Avisail Garcia. “We’ll be sitting in a pretty good place from a team perspective if that’s the case and becomes the issue,” Counsell said. “We have four really good outfielders, and I don’t think playing time is going to be an issue.” … Yu Darvish once said his son wanted him to play for the Cubs because he liked the cute, cuddly Cubbie bear. After making his spring training debut with the San Diego Padres, Darvish said the Padres kids also are “cute.” “I’m not sure if this is the proper way to to put it, but they’re cute, in a sense,” he said. “I’ve been in the league long enough and I probably would be considered a veteran, but being around these young guys, I don’t actually feel like being a veteran or feeling old.” … Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo has five home runs and nine RBIs in his first six Cactus League games. The Rangers spring training record is eight homers by Mark Teixeira in 2003.
