The 20th could be Gallardo's last outing of the season....17 YO will walk into that outing with a 4.28 ERA/4.61 RA9 in a league where the average is 4.36/5.44, has 3 PAs against a hitter younger than him, his 3% HR/FB is strong, and a 12:3 K/BB in his last 5 outings (14.2 IP). He probably got capped at 3 IP per start because because, failed to reach it 3 times in ten outings so far including just once in the past 5 when he went 2.2. At probably 30 IP Gallardo wouldn't be so far behind guys who will compete for and/or hold SB starting jobs like Kohl Franklin and Michael McAvene, on pace for 40-45 IP this year

5 games left in the DSL too and Pinango's Cubs 1 roster has long been eliminated from the playoffs. They have a winning record, mostly on two players, but the Rangers1 went 54-12 in their division and the second place time would have won two other divisions.

No Jensen for Eugene, shucks

2/4 with a 2B and a K for both Ademan and Amaya, definitely wouldn't mind Ademan finishing strong too

Keegan Thompson got the start in the AZL in his first rehab appearance. He only had one start in AA before going on the DL. 2 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K.

Gallardo: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

From my quick perusal of the play logs it also looks like 8 of 13 balls in play were on the ground (62%)

Marquez hit 102 on the stadium gun again last night. Ho hum.

Quietly an impressive debut for the 17 year old. Would imagine they take their time with him a little and assign him to Eugene next year, but I suppose it depends on how aggressive they are with promoting some of the 2019 Eugene SPs straight to Myrtle Beach. Quite a few guys need to be given legit shots at cracking a rotation.

Rumor has it he gave up a run last night.

Shees, I knew has was a flash in the pan. Da Cubs ain't got no pitching prospects.

I'm pretty clueless on which makes more sense for him - the NWL or MWL, but in a good way since they've never had an 18 YO pitcher with his combo of pedigree and polish. The set up is for 60-70 maybe 75 IP, which is an NWL season's worth of innings but it might be too easy a league for him even at 18. OTOH if he tears it up as hoped maybe even expected with that assignment, maybe they can push a 19 YO Gallardo to MB in 2021 (skipping the MWL would hardly be unprecedented for a pitcher in this system) and let him fly through whatever levels he can until he hits 100-110 innings...Possibly the worst case besides injury or collapse in that scenario is you have a 20 YO Gallardo in AA at 20 ready to throw as many as 150 innings maybe a little more

OTOOH if he goes straight to the MWL he gets the benefits of tougher competition and the org can manage his workload more easily without much worry about coming up short on innings - more likely to get more even - with sufficient rest and recovery periods in between. It'd also fit into that whole more aggressive approach with pitching prospects they talked about, and both set up the same start point in 2021 anyway.

Either way, pretty cool to have a teenaged pitching prospect that has a shot to skip one of those two levels. My notsobold prediction is that Marquez holds the nominal top pitching prospect title at least another year if not traded, but Gallardo otherwise establishes himself as the system's cleanest SP prospect next year*

*Edit: Going "cleanest" because Jensen could/should take "best" after 2020 hopefully

Gallardo's best chance at getting meaningful innings in the MWL would be as a call up around June 1 from Extended Spring Training due to promotion/injury in South Bend. I imagine the Cubs will do everything they can to keep him away from the MWL in April.
