Cactus League report: 4 moves get the Cubs closer to their 26-man roster — while Andrew Vaughn tries to keep his defense out of the batter’s box for the White Sox

The Cubs went into Sunday with 39 home runs, the third most among Cactus League teams behind the Kansas City Royals (43) and Milwaukee Brewers (43). … The White Sox starting rotation of Lucas Giolito, Dallas Keuchel, Lance Lynn, Dylan Cease and Carlos Rodón had a combined 4-2 record with a 2.14 ERA (17 ER/71.1 IP), 82 strikeouts and a .181 (46-254) opponents average in 19 starts before Sunday’s game. … The San Francisco Giants have been one of the league leaders in stolen bases this spring, which may or may not be an omen for the regular season. “Spring training is really a time to experiment and test and push your limits,” team President Farhan Zaidi said. “And if you have to rein that in once the season starts, that’s great.” The Giants were 24th in the majors with 19 steals in 2020. The San Diego Padres led all teams with 55 steals. … During a game Saturday between the Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers, pitcher Trevor Bauer gave signs to Jose Ramirez, his former Indians teammate, to let him know what pitches he was about to throw. Ramirez drew a walk and then struck out, causing Bauer to celebrate like “Rocky.” Bauer later tweeted: “Don’t worry son, it’s just spring training. Keep your head up @MrLapara.”
