Ho hum day for Pinango, 3/4 with a K and all singles. I notice that GO/AO shrinking down to 1!

Fun fact: Pinango had a 123 PA stretch between 6/12 and 7/18 when he struck out 3(!!!!) times while hitting .324/.398/.467

This time next year the Cubs might have two badass looking OFers in the lower minors with Davis and this guy. I implore Jose Gutierrez to also and actually hit to complete the set with a switch hitter

Pretty sure it’s a standard rule across the minors for us that pitchers are pulled once they finish an AB that takes them to 30 or more pitches in an inning.

At this point I'm just hoping another team thinks he's salvageable enough to have some value in a trade.

Jensen's 1st inning with reported velocities:

1st batter: 97, 98, 97, 97 - K swinging (5 pitches total)
2nd batter: 98, 97 - K swinging (7 pitches total)
3rd batter: No velocities given but FBs all looked similar speeds. Strike swinging FB, SL fouled. Strike swinging FB.

Strikes out the side.

2nd inning:

1st batter: 5 pitch walk. All 5 FBs.
2nd batter: HBP on 1st pitch FB.
3rd batter: SL low, SL strike at 90, SL grounded into DP.
4th batter: FB inside 97, SL 90 swinging strike, FB just high (looked good to me), FB way low & outside (only bad pitch of the night), SL swinging strike, great SL - K looking.

PBP guy reported Trackman had Jensen sitting mostly 98.

This year's 12th rounder out of Harvard, RHP Hunter Bigge (pronounced Big-ee), hit 98 on the stadium gun. Bigge is 6'0", 205 lbs and turned 21 back in June. From my viewing, he's primarily a fastball, curveball pitcher.

Pirates' 2016 13th rounder, John Pomeroy, was signed by the Cubs as a minor league free agent this off season. He's 24 years old, 6'5", 210 (looks a bit heavier than that but not out of shape). He missed all of 2017 after TJS and was released by the Pirates after the 2018 season. He sat 95-96 and touched 98. He adds a fringy-looking slider. He'll turn 25 in October, so he's a long shot.
