The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by City Wok

Iowa

Ty'Relle Harris struck out 5 in 6 IP. New Cub Jaye Chapman struck out both batters that he faced. 

Smokies

Jacob Brigham channeled the spirit of Geraldo Concepcion giving up 6 ER while retiring 1 batter. He has now given up 8 ER in 3.2 IP since joining the Cubs. Szczur was 1-4 with a BB.

Daytona

Javier Baez finally had a nice game in High A hitting 2-4 and driving in 3 runs. John Andreoli stole 3 bases giving him a season total of 47. Austin Kirk worked 5.2 IP giving up 1 run and striking out 3. 

Peoria

The story of the night was Starling Peralta who struck out 14 batters in 7 innings. He walked no one and only gave up 2 hits one of which was a solo HR. Peralta usually sits in the low 90's and has never really shown much in the way of production so this is probably just a nice game that will be the highlight of his career. On the hitting side Zeke DeVoss was 4-4 with a pair of doubles a triple and a SB. I had high hopes for DeVoss coming into the year but he has really struggled in Peoria and is only hitting .239.

Boise

Like most nights it was the Gioskar Amaya/Dan Vogelbach show. Amaya 2-5 with his 10th triple of the season. 10 triples in 186 AB's. Thats pretty good. Amaya now has a .913 OPS. Vogelbach contributed with a 1-3 effort including his 3rd HR since joining Boise. He also drew a walk. Vogelbach's bat is way advanced for the low levels so lets hope he is getting his glovework together because other than that this kid should be in Peoria. 

AZL

Jorge Soler went 1-4 with a BB and a pair of stolen bases. He now has 8 on the year. Albert Almora also swiped two bags and got one hit in 5 AB's. The pitching was impressive with Ryan McNeil striking out 4 in 2.1 IP. Loiger Padron finished the game out working the final 3 IP and striking out 3 while shutting down the other team.
