Aramis Ademan went 3/5 with a triple plus a walk and a HBP in today's doubleheader. Jhonny Pereda went 3/6 with 2 doubles plus a walk.

Pereda seems like the Cubs’ breakout position player prospect so far this season.

Nice to see Ademan and Martinez have a good day. More full season prospect bats hitting, please! Velazquez had a couple hits too, and Assad even pitched well.

I'm really loving the sink or swim approach this year...Martinez in AA after a weak offensve year last year, Ademan in High A, Velazquez and Amaya in A ball, quick promotion for Bailey Clarke, Mekkes in AA, Galindo in MB...

Quite the day at ExST per AZ Phil:

Luis Diaz, 3B: 2-5 (2B, 3B, 5-3, 6-3, L-6, R)
Jonathan Soto, DH #1: 0-2 (6-3, 3-2 FC, R)
Christopher Morel, SS: 2-4 (2B, 3B, 6-3, F-8, R, 2 RBI)
Henderson Perez, C: 4-4 (1B, 1B, 2B, 2B, 3 R, 2 RBI)
Kwangmin Kwon, CF: 2-3 (3-U, 2B, 2B, R, 2 RBI)
Orian Nunez, 2B: 1-2 (BB, HR, F-8, F-8 SF, R, 3 RBI)

Jeremiah Estrada: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R (1 ER), 2 BB, 1 K, 1 GIDP, 3/0 GO/AO, 35 pitches (20 strikes)
Eduarniel Nunez: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 2/2 GO/AO, 33 pitches (18 strikes)

Cubs RHSP Jeremiah Estrada continues to struggle with command, laboring through two innings before being relieved. Also, his normal 94 MPH FB velocity was down a tick. But RHP Eduarniel Nunez had his FB cranked-up to 95 today and broke a couple of bats with it when he wasn't bouncing it in front of the plate or throwing it over the batter's head, but he apparently had a good feel for his curve, dropping about a half-dozen benders in for a called-strike when he really needed one. E. Nunez may be raw but he sure does have a "live" arm.

Cubs shortstop Christopher Morel made two oustanding stops & throws that wowed the scouts in attendance (both times going deep into the 5.5 hole and backhanding a grounder before throwing a laser-strike to 1st base to retire the batter). But the defensive play of the day was turned-in by RF Chris Carrier (not known for his defense), who came out of nowhere to make a spectacular diving catch in short rightfield.

While Miguel Amaya is clearly the Cubs #1 catching prospect (some of you will probably recall that he was MVP at Cubs Extended Spring Training last year), the #2 and #3 are Jonathan Soto and Henderson Perez, and they are both at Extended Spring Training right now. And it is possible that one of them could (like M. Amaya did last year) jump over AZL and go directly to Eugene.
