The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored By Binny's Beverage Depot


Dave Sappelt hit his 2nd HR of the year and Anthony Rizzo knocked in 3 RBI's. Adrian Cardenas keeps killing the ball down there and Vitters is now sporting a sweet .635 OPS. But at least he has 5 walks vs 6 k's. Keep in mind he is still young for AAA. Casey Coleman had a good start but the bullpen shit the bed and Iowa lost 7-12.


Jae Hoon Ha went 3-4 with a SB. Nick Struck went 5 IP and gave up 1 ER. He now has a 2.45 ERA.


Daytona broke out the big sticks winning 13-2. Spellcheck Jr went 2-6 and is almost up to a .200 batting average. Torreyes picked up a pair of hits and a walk as well. Nelson Perez had a big day going 3-3 with a HR, 3 RBI's and pair of walks.


Oliver Zapata continues to hit very well going 2-4. He now has 13 hits in 28 AB's for the year. The big story was Michael Jensen had another great start. Jensen only allowed 2 base runners in 7 IP and struck out 6. It was reported that Jensen was throwing in the low 90's with a good curve. Its still early but Jensen has been one of the few bright spots in the minors this year.
