News: Watkins tore his Achilles while working out in Arizona on Wednesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Watkins, like many other Cubs players, had just recently arrived at the team's minor league complex to get an early start on his workouts. It's a tough development for the 25-year-old Watkins, who was expected to compete for a utility role after batting .246 in 65 at-bats with the big club last season. He figures to miss most, if not all, of the 2015 campaign as a result of the injury.
