Aaron’s last post was great and all, but it left out one of the most important things about the Cubs’ chances this coming season: the impact of Geovany Soto’s waxed eyebrows.

Mets pitcher Rafael Montero will undergo Tommy John surgery.
Montero felt some discomfort after his latest Grapefruit League appearance. This morning he was diagnosed with a complete tear of the UCL in his right elbow. He’ll now miss all of the 2018 season and most of the first half of the 2019 season.
Montero, 27, was once a top pitching prospect. He performed swingman duties for the Mets last year, starting in 18 games and relieving in 16. He wasn’t too successful in that role — his ERA was 5.52 in 2017 — but he was battling for a spot in the Mets’ bullpen this spring.
