Bloomquist starting makes sense now. MB's ASB starts tomorrow. They probably wanted to give Alzolay a chance to pitch in it.

So, Jason Vosler is 2nd in the Southern League in HRs, SLG and OPS and he's younger than the guy in 1st place (plus most of the guys under him).

ICYMI, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans are in the Carolina League playoffs after winning the Southern Division by 6 games in the 1st half. They also had the best record in the league winning 3 more games than the Northern Division winner. The Pelicans have made the playoffs all 3 years they've been a part of the Cubs organization (and 7 straight seasons dating back to 2011).

Don't know why, but Paredes has DH'd his last 4 games. Can't imagine he could have an injury that would allow him to hit but not field. Maybe they're working on the side on his defense and just want him to focus on hitting during games for now. I don't know.

What we do know is he's hitting very well of late (.320/.443/.540 in June) especially for an 18-year-old in the MWL.

Yeah so I haven't been following the minor leagues super duper closely, but is J. Vosler a legit prospect now? His slash line is now .274/.375/.521 with 13 HRs at AA. He bats lefthanded and if I recall correctly is pretty solid defensively at 3B. I haven't read any reports about him or mentions on other websites.

Anyone got reports or a Scout's take on this guy? Seems like a legit prospect to me.

I don't have a scout's take. Maybe someone can ask Longenhagen or Law in one of their upcoming chats.

What I do know is that Cubs developmental personnel loved his work ethic and how well he assimilated their instruction. They told Arguello over at Cubs Den during 2016 spring training to keep on eye on him, that he was going to be good.

Besides that, the numbers (thus far) kind of speak for themselves. There's a lot of season to go, however. He started hot last season hitting .311/.402/.392 in April, then cooled off and stayed cold after that, so a slump or five could be in his future, though he's been fairly consistent this season. His hit tool seems average or below given he's never hit higher than .266 at any level and has a career AVG of .253. He's always had a good approach, though, with solid BB/K numbers each season.

However, under this front office, every year it seems there's a player or two at the upper levels that raises their performance to a level we've never seen before and seems unlikely to sustain ...and then they do. Contreras in AA in 2015. Candelario in AAA last year. Could that be Charcer Burks and Jason Vosler this year? The Cubs scouting staff has placed added importance on a prospect's work ethic, ability to handle adversity and aptitude receiving instruction. That seems to lend itself to every now and then players like a 16th round pick out of Northeastern making good in AA.

It also depends on what you mean by legit prospect. 2nd division regular as a ceiling ranks as legit to me, and I think that's a fair ceiling, but it's also pretty early (a little under half a season of good performance) to know what his chances of reaching that ceiling are.

If a legit prospect means top 100, then no. He's not that. But there are plenty of decent regular starters in the majors that never were, and plenty of top 100 prospects that never started a game in the majors.

I know it would make sense to trade him for Chris Archer, but I think I'd get sick anyways.

Way early yet, but the most touted prospect of a very low-priced 2016 IFA class, RHP Jonathan Bruzal, has put together two solid outings since his terrible first start.

2 starts, 8 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 10 K. He's 17, 6'1", 172 lbs.
