The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Elmer’s Glue


Brett Jackson had another Brett Jackson kind of game going 1-4 with and walk, SB and strikeout. Vitters was 3-5 with his 5th SB of the year and got his BA back up to .300. No idea if these two are heading up for tonights game vs the Angels but Chris DeLuca was speculating that it might be the case.


Logan Watkins got two hits in 4 AB's last night including his 5th HR of the year. Watkins will probably be heading up to Iowa next season and still looks to be a decent prospect for a utility kind of role. Zach Rosscup threw 5 innings and allowed 1 ER while striking out 4 and walking 2. New Cub Jake Brigham had a rough outing giving up 2 ER in 3 IP. He walked 3 and struck out 2 batters. 


Not a bad start for Christian Villanueva, in his first game as a Cub he hit two home runs and drew a a walk. Ronald Torreyes continues his revival going 2-3 with his 6th HR and drawing a walk of his own. He has a .900 OPS over the last two months. AJ Morris threw two shutout innings in relief. 



Dustin Geiger is locked in at the plate. A day after hitting two HR's and driving in eight batters Geiger hit his 14th HR and collected two other hits for fun. 2012 pick Bijan Rademacher went 2-4 and is now hitting .277 since his arrival in Peoria. 


Got the shit kicked out of them 15-1. They committed 6 errors. Vogelbach went 2-4 as the DH so he was the only one who showed up to play.


2012 pick Ryan McNeil struck out 2 in 2 IP to earn his first career win. Soler was 1-4 with a double and 4 of his first 11 hits have been XBH.
