Brennen Davis went 3/3 with a HR, BB, and SB He finishes his season hitting 305/.381/.525 with a GO/AO <1, a sub-20% K rate...Just 204 PAs because the org tried to kill him twice, but squeezed all the good stuff in Thanks CR for these everyday That's great to have Davis end up with a big day, and a...

Oh man. Dreaming on Gallardo taking a step forward and dominating the NWL next season along with Cruz (98 & 99!) pulling a Marquez in South Bend next year.

Hope springs eternal even in late summer in the minor league forum...

https://twitter.com/cubscentral08/status/1168244613741785088?s=21 I know it's only 26.1 innings but I wonder if Brailyn was dominant enough to have the Cubs thinking about starting him at AA. Feels similar to Adbert who spent most of 2017 in high-A, logged 32.2 AA innings to end the season and then...

Vimael Machin was already seen as a super utility guy, but the Tennessee Smokies did their part to redefine that term tonight playing Machin at every position except pitcher.

He's averaging 7 innings per start this month without exceeding his 100 pitch cutoff (one game was a rain-shortened affair in which he only went 3). He's led the Cubs sys...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-29-19

Watched Gallardo's first televised appearance. His curveball is legit. The FB is average at this point 92-93, decent control but missed his spots often. But that curve, damn. And, obviously, he's got plenty of time to develop and add velocity. Gallardo wasn't given his promotion based solely on his ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-26-19

The case of Tyson Miller's time in AAA has been frustrating and confusing. It's tough to make the case that his 215 innings in High A and AA were just lucky. And clearly the PCL is a known hitter's league that is now using the MLB baseball that stats suggest is juiced a bit, but he's been really, re...

Re: Minor League Musings

Funner fact: Marquez got a lot better as the season went along so looking to season long numbers for accurate context on who he is now doesn't tell us much . We could also point out his season long walk numbers, but that would ignore the fact that in his last 5 stats (27.1 innings) he's walked 5 gu...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-23-19

As a 19-year-old in the MWL, I'm mostly looking to see development. Roederer hasn't lit the league on fire in the 2nd half by any stretch, but he's definitely improved. 1st half OPS .630, 2nd half .746. K-rate down in the 2nd half and his walk rate went up. Even his SB% is up. Good signs. I think he...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-22-19

Lot of interesting things yesterday. Both Chicago and Iowa won 1-0, Iowa threw a 1-hitter. Speaking of Iowa's pitching ( :D ), I have a teaser alert. Maples and Norwood are on good rolls. For both of them it's about controlling their ++ stuff, and they've been doing that as of late. Maybe they've f...

Yes. The problem is they also get to ball 4 quite often, too.

Well, he improved his slider this year. That thing is above average to plus consistently now. Next is the change up.

Again, I'll be interested to see how they project him next spring.

Wow, really? That's a lot higher than I thought he'd say. The FanGraphs guys haven't really been down on him as a SP so much as a particularly good one. Their preseason projection was a #4 starter That high? For a guy with mediocre production who hadn't played full season ball yet? Is that common f...

What do you think are the chances that Brailyn Marquez can be a starter? Eric A Longenhagen: 35-40%? Any thoughts/buzz on the Cubs’ Pedro Martinez who is tearing up short season ball at 18? Eric A Longenhagen: limited physical projection but there is power right now. Tough to project a position bec...
