Cubs | Samardzija progressing

Carrie Muskat, of, reports Chicago Cubs P Jeff Samardzija is impressing the coaching staff this spring. "He's throwing the ball smoother, with less effort, and his mechanics have improved," manager Lou Piniella said. "He looks like a major league pitcher on the mound. He's got natural talent. It's just a question of refining it. We're going to let this guy pitch and around the 20th of March, we'll see exactly where he's at."
