Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-16-17

Throw enough horsefeathers against the wall, hopefully 2-3 stick. Yeah but less general - high pedigree, relatively high onus arms with louder tools like Estrada, Lange, and (relative to your typical Mexican prospect) Albertos are not something this org has actively gone after until extremely recen...

HR #1 allowed by Faustino Carrera some 112 innings into his career.

5th HR for that HS draftee, OF Velazquez

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-15-17

Switch hitting 17 YO SS Josue Huma is putting up an interesting enough ~11% K rate in the DSL right now to go with an 8% walk rate.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-14-17

A rare fairly straightforward solid outing for a Cubs pitching prospect from Hatch. 5 IP, a couple hits, 6 Ks, a couple walks, a 4/2 GO/AO, and a pop up/IFFB.

Lange with a pop up and a couple Ks.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-10-17

Woof indeed. Not much of a prospect. Not a prospect at all I also hold serious doubts the Cubs in the middle of an extremely tight division race will want to give Maples a tryout. That said, he's been very good this year and if they are 100% confident he can get ML hitters out based on what he's sh...

Not a big deal, but DSL 1B Luis Hidalgo made his stateside debut tonight for Mesa going 1-for-4 with a double and 2 Ks. The 21-year-old hit .353.419/.521 with 5 HRs and 16/21 BB/K for DSL1 this season. Between 2 VSL and 2 DSL seasons he's hit .282/.361/.431 . Woof Woof indeed. Not much of a prospec...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-10-17

So is a 17 YO SS going to be the most promising AZL hitter again this year? Luis Vazquez has been good and is 2/3 with a double so far tonight.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-10-17

Always nice when Ademan is having a good game at the plate as an 18 YO in full season ball. He's got a more interesting frame than I thought, thought he was less broad shouldered than he is. I still don't hate Eddy Martinez. Weird career with the whole missing two years thing, surprise full season a...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-9-17

Yeah, Eloy is gonna mash. We just have to get over that. Quintana not being "meh" would go a long way towards helping all of us with this. Paredes mashing is the one that hurts me right now. Wilson has looked truly terrible so far. I'll be over Paredes swiftly when the Cubs field their su...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

I'm loving this brave new world where a 25 YO Cubs player with a .900 OPS is undeniably having a down year.

Jose Gutierrez and Luis Vazquez have both been showing a pulse lately on the AZL squad. The OF they drafted could be interesting.

Paredes hitting over 400 with 4 HR in Tigers system after hitting 2 today This is as upset over trading a Cubs prospect as I'll ever get, and it's not so bad. By the time the legend begins at the ML level the Cubs will be the richest, winningest team in baseball anyway. All I ask is that Seinfeld: ...
