He got back on track today: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K.


Excellent.

What a weird game though. Pelicans win on one hit.

Re: 2018 Mid Season Top 20

David Bote graduated from prospect list eligibility today. MLB.com added Jeremiah Estrada at 30 to replace him and included this in his blurb: He began 2018 in Extended Spring Training and came down with elbow soreness that lead the Cubs to shut him down as a precaution. Yeah, that's everything I h...

Allen Webster, pitching for the second straight night, had another scoreless inning. Might be getting close to moving up.

Nice to see Bailey back. Did we ever find out what his injury was?

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-6-18

16-year-old Reivaj Garcia went 2-for-3 notching his 13th multi-hit game and keeping his average around .300. Very little power (only 7 XBH, all doubles) but that's to be expected at 16 (he'll finally turn 17 next week). That he's hitting this well in the AZL at this age is fun, but the fact that he...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-4-18

Sometimes I'm not sure if you read the post you're responding to... That's essentially Jeremiah Estrada's velocity. I wouldn't call that common, but you're are welcome to. Estrada isn't an interesting prospect just because he has some velocity. It's not particularly hard to find a RH who can hit 95...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-4-18

Uh, there isn't a guy named Nunez pitching for either Cubs DSL team so I don't know who you're talking about. Eduarniel Nunez spent one season in the DSL and was promoted to the AZL Cubs this year. He was in ExST this year where AZ Phil commented on his velocity sitting low to mid-90s and touching ...

And you're gonna go "eh" on Nunez with his velo at his age but include Bruzual? I mean this list is already absurdly long, but you're gonna have to explain that one to me. Yes to the first question pretty handily. One got promoted to Arizona and the other is having a tough time repeating ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-4-18

18-year-old LHP Luis Rodriguez now has 7 outings (out of 12 total) in which he hasn't allowed an earned run or a walk in the same game. Obviously, if you add up the numbers from those games, it's gonna look really good: 27.1 IP, 16 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 24 K, 0.59 WHIP and obviously a 0.00 ERA Here's ...

Hey, Carlos Morfa is back again in the DSL2 line up after a mysterious appearance playing catcher which still hasn't shown up on his games played log. He's batting 2nd and playing DH today. He singled and stole a base in the first inning.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-2-18

There are some good numbers being put up by guys 19 and younger in the DSL so I thought I'd try to put together a line-up from the 2 rosters combined. 1. 2B Rochest Cruz (19) 169 ABs, .320/.421/.450, 8 2Bs, 4 3Bs, 2 HR, 27 BB, 21 K, 41 SB, 6 CS.

Andy Weber went 0-5 last night so presumably Cole Roederer will have multiple base hits tonight... And sure enough, Roederer leads off the game with a triple and later scores, then follows that up with a HR! When I was in high school, we played this team in football that had identical twin brothers...

No Maples, but Zastryzny gives up a hit in the 8th.

Great game from Mills. His best in a while.

6 perfect with 4 Ks. Inspired by his brief call up?

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Obviously you wait and see how he does the rest of the season and in the playoffs, but if you had to make the decision today, would you resign Justin Wilson assuming the price is right? After a horrible first 3 weeks in May (and since May 26th), Wilson has a 2.88 ERA, a slash of .200/.301/.288, and...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 8-1-18

I tend to dismiss later round collegiate draft picks like Zack Short (17th), Matt Swarmer (19th), Trent Giambrone (25th) and last but not least, David Bote (18th) as organizational roster filler, but lately the Cubs scouting and developmental staff have, once again, been surprising me. That brings m...
