Rademacher and Higgins hit home runs.
3a. Zack Short, SS: 1-3 (1B, K, K)
1. Ryan Kellogg: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R (1 ER), 2 BB, 1 K, 2/2 GO/AO, 36 pitches (21 strikes)
2a. David Bote, SS-DH; 1-3 (1B, K, F-8)
3a. Mark Zagunis, LF: 1-2 (1B, K)
3b. Fernando Kelli, CF: 0-1 (6-3, BB)
1. Jen-Ho Tseng: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R (2 ER), 2 BB, 2 K, 1 HBP, 1 HR, 2/3 GO/AO, 62 pitches (39 strikes)
I know Fernando Kelli got the love last year for his DSL slash and stolen bases (spent yesterday on Iowa's ST squad), but between the two I see more to like in Gutierrez long term if that can be a thing for two guys who are still shooting for any prospect status. Gutierrez is the one that got the stateside promotion at 18, is the one still switch hitting after both were signed as such, Gutierrez will play all year at 19 vs. Kelli turning 20 mid-summer, Gutierrez outplayed him in the DSL when they were both there....
Here's a clip of Kelli:
I couldn't take anything out of it but him being fast. Maybe the swing is all upper body, and maybe the frame is not as projectable as I hoped.
Someone in this pool of toolsy but raw OF group (Wilson, Velazquez, Sierra, Gutierrez, Kelli, etc?) is going to step up and show a starter's ceiling. Velazquez easily has the lead right now with his Puig-ish body and tools.

2B - LeMahieu (29)
SS - Torres (21)
LF - Jimenez (21)
RF - Soler (26)
3B - Candelario (24)
C - Caratini (24)
1B - Vogelbach (25)
CF - McKinney (23)
SP - Godley (27)
That team may not be going to the playoffs, but they'd win some games and have a bright future. The weakest link is McKinney in CF. I'm sure I'm forgetting people. Have the Cubs traded away a decent CF prospect?
How could you forget the immortal Tony Campana lol?
How could I have forgotten the scrappy fan favorite!
I'd have a large grin on my face if I saw this while driving lol.
