Re: Robel Garcia promoted

His Ruthian start is more than likely a Jake Fox/Bryan LaHair-esque apparition. This being said, when you’re a contender, having such a thing is quite valuable. That and the fact that he’s not Daniel DeScalso makes him alright in my book.

It seems like only yesterday when Javy was struggling in Iowa and people wanted to trade him before he lost value. Just sayin’.

Ah, the gritty, white, journeyman, middle infielder in the midst of a career season. Those always prove to be worthy investments.

Passantino was nasty again for Iowa What’s this guys story? I say BN or Cubs Prospect guy tweet he didn’t top like 86 tonight. Does he have Hendricks like command? Is his delivery incredibly deceptive? Sorry. I hope I didn't come off as having seen his outing. I was just going off of the box score....

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-25-19

As long as the not-so dynamic duo of Russell and DeScalso continue to combine to form the biggest black hole in baseball and Zo continues to sulk at home or church or wherever he does his sulking, I see no reason not to give Robel a look-see.

Re: 2018-19 Other Team Offseason Transactions Not Worth a New Thread

The Athletics have selected the contract of right-hander Brian Schlitter from Triple-A Las Vegas, the team announced. He’ll take the 25-man spot of closer Blake Treinen, whom the A’s placed on the injured list Saturday, and give the club a full 40-man roster.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-6-19

When did we pick up Jun Tazawa? I know he’s many moons separated from greatness (or even goodness,) and Kimbrel makes him that much more an afterthought, but it’s a fairly big name to be that under the radar.

Re: Cubs in agreement with Craig Kimbrel 3/$43m with 4th year option

If/when Morrow returns, we will be looking at a very sick bullpen:

Kimbrel
Morrow
Strop
Edwards
Monty
Some mix of Brach/Cishek/Kintzler/Chatwood

On a random note, can anyone guess whose draft day report this is? ______ is a toolsy high school center fielder who was gaining momentum as the weather in the Northeast warmed up. He looks more like a football safety -- his position in high school -- than a center fielder, but has the tools to play...

Pretty standard for an AAA to me- a few proper prospects (Happ & Alzolay,) a handfull of intriguing, fringey guys (Garcia, Mekkes, Norwood) and a bunch of expendable spare parts for the big league team.

https://twitter.com/cubs/status/1125475726193516544?s=21 Robel is 26. He probably needs to get the bump to AAA. Huh, I know nothing about Robel Garcia. Is he a real prospect?

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

So it looks like it’s down to the Phillies and Giants.

And are their pockets deep enough that they can build enough around him to put them there? Because ...
