The Cubs are Adding a Second AZL Team This Year

Postby CaliforniaRaisin » Fri Jan 19, 2018 2:34 pm

Didn't catch it until Brett mentioned it. https://www.mlb.com/cubs/news/cubs-set- ... -264899496

Carmelo Martinez begins his 21st season in the Cubs organization, and returns to manage Rookie League Mesa for the fourth-straight year. The club has reached the Arizona League playoffs each of the last three seasons.

...

Jonathan Mota begins his first year as a manager, taking over the club's second rookie league team in Mesa.


They'll still have two DSL teams.

Wow. I like it. Makes it easier to bring DSL guys up. And allows for more cheap signings down there too, as it indirectly opens up more playing time, in numerous spots.

Nice!. Been waiting on this. Yanks, D-Backs, Astros and I think a few others have two. The more the merrier, I say.

Jon Mota's coaching now, huh? Completely missed that, but good for him.
