Cubs' reliever Takahashi shaky in rare start
SURPRISE, Ariz. – Hisanori Takahashi knows there are no guarantees for a player who walks into major league camp with a minor league contract. That’s why he’s happy to fill any role for the Cubs.
Bidding for a spot in the bullpen, Takahashi started Wednesday and pitched three shaky innings in a 3-2 loss to the Texas Rangers.
The 37-year-old left-hander gave up three runs and five hits, including Lance Berkman’s first home run. He walked two and struck out four in his fourth appearance of the spring.
