Cubs add Hultzen to 60-man pool

Pitcher Danny Hultzen of Bethesda will be a part of the Cubs’ 60-man player pool this season.

The lefty is not on the team’s 40-man roster, but will still get the chance to train at Wrigley Field, along with 21 other pitchers. Teams are starting their offseason training as they prepare to start an abbreviated season in July. [CBS Sports]

Purple Line stations need safer access for pedestrians, planners say

Suburban roads designed to move traffic need better sidewalks and crosswalks to make Purple Line stations easier and safer to reach on foot and bicycle, according to a new study by Montgomery County planners.

Unlike Metro stations, the light-rail Purple Line stops under construction in Maryland will have no additional parking, except at those adjacent to Metro stations that already have it. [Washington Post]
