2022 Cubs #52 and 53

 Two additional players, both pitchers, joined the team recently, bringing the season total to 53 players.

Kervin Castro was picked up via waivers from the Giants.  His first appearance was on Thursday, taking the mound in the 7th inning of a tied game.  He promptly gave up three runs and took the loss.

Matt Dermody also joined the team on Thursday as the extra doubleheader player.  He pitched the inning following Kervin Castro's debacle.  Dermondy debacled also, giving up two runs in his inning, putting the game out of reach for any comeback.  He went back to Iowa after the game.

  1. My son went to the Cubs / Marlins game last Friday (the game with the Contreras homer in the 8th) and was able to get Castro's and Anderson Espinosa's autograph. Had seats right behind the camera well on the third base side too. Lucky kid.
