Myrtle Beach is getting mowed down, but it's by Cole Wilcox so not exactly surprising

Tough day:



Can’t say I’m big on Wilcox as a SP, frankly you’d like to see a guy with his status opening in High A this year, but he dominated like you’d want

They haven’t come out hot, and the offense will be more “get it done” than dominant, but I think this MB roster is going to be really competitive in the league once the pitching gets going

^^ I missed that completely

The South Bend Cubs get to face Asa Lacy tonight, basically the best college SP prospect in years, so that should be fun. I wouldn't be surprised if he's in the MLs this September to get his feet wet

And after reports (h/t named after maddux) had Cubs exec predicting both Sanders and Bain would be top 10 prospects in the org by season's end.

That's high praise assuming this unnamed exec knows who is currently in the Cubs top 10 because not many of them are likely to graduate.

Brennen Davis
Brailyn Marquez
Miguel Amaya
Cristian Hernandez
Ed Howard
Kohl Franklin

Are a very solid top 6. The next 4:

Chris Morel
Ryan Jensen
Chase Strumpf
Reggie Preciado

Morel's overly aggressive approach could get him into trouble against AA pitching and hurt his prospect stock. Jensen might not maintain his stuff deep into starts and show himself to be a reliever. Strumpf looks prepared to rake. Preciado has a lot of upside which will make him difficult to drop in rankings. There are several prospects in the 10-30 range who could also make some big jumps. Pinango, Caissie, Mena, Riley Thompson, Made, Santana, Quintero, etc.

If this Cubs exec is correct, leapfrogging all those players and jumping from unranked in a top 30 to the top 10 would quite the feather in the cap of their scouting (Bain) and development (Sanders) departments.

Cam's AA debut today makes for a nice 1st step...

Rodríguez walks two guys, then gives up a home run with two outs to lose the no-hitter and blow the lead.

Cubs pitching prospect Cam Sanders busted down the door last night, folks, facing the minimum 15 hitters in a five-inning Double-A debut. He was (according to a source) up to 98 mph with a well-commanded fastball, and frequently mixed in all three of his secondaries. And the 12th round pick from the 2018 Draft has now positioned himself as the first breakout Cubs prospect of this unique 2021 campaign.

Get the velo back up to the high 90's by June and he'll be in TN pretty easily.
