• Sveum and other Cubs staffers toured the team's new Spring Training facility in Mesa on Tuesday.
"It's beautiful," Sveum said. "Obviously, we're a few months away from the final touches being done, but you can see it all coming together and how cool it is and the facility and the space and the weight room are going to be phenomenal. It's just nice that it's all ours, I think is the biggest thing, and that stadium will be something to see."
He even got to peek at where his office will be.
"It's just cinder blocks now," he said.
The new facility is in east Mesa, located near the intersection of highways 101 and 202.
• Right-hander Jake Arrieta, acquired from the Orioles in the Scott Feldman deal, could start for the Cubs on Tuesday when they play a makeup doubleheader against the Brewers. Arrieta is 0-2 with a 5.17 ERA in four starts at Triple-A Iowa, giving up nine earned runs over 15 2/3 innings.
• Kris Bryant, the Cubs' No. 1 Draft pick, joined Class A Boise on Tuesday. Bryant recorded his first professional hit, a double, and drove in two runs on Monday for the Cubs' Rookie League team. Bryant played two games for the Cubs' Rookie League team and provided all the offense in a 2-1 win over the Royals on Monday.
The third baseman will be joined in Boise by third-round pick Jacob Hannemann. Bryant, picked second overall, will be the highest Draft pick to ever play for the Hawks. Lou Montanez (2000) and Josh Vitters (2007), who were both taken third overall, did play for the team.
• Scott Baker, rehabbing from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, was scheduled to make his third rehab start for Class A Kane County on Wednesday. So far, Baker has given up 10 earned runs over 5 2/3 innings in two games.
