The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Extenze


Nobody really did much. Adrian Cardenas was 2-5 and I still think will be a good utility guy for us next year. Jackson was 1-4 with the required strikeout. His quest for 200 continues. 


Junior Lake is on a hot streak hitting 2 HR's last night to go with the one he hit yesterday. He also managed to walk and promptly threw up with self loathing upon making it to 1st base. Trey McNutt pitched 2 innings and struck out 3 and allowing zero base runners. 

Daytona Game 1

PJ Francescon has run out of hate powered magic and got shelled last night. He gave up 6 ER in 3.2 IP while walking 4 and failing to strike out a single batter. Matt Szczur stole 3 bases.

Game 2

Matt Szczur was 2-3 and stole base # 38. His wRC+ is now 137.


Knuckleballer Jospeh Zeller had a strong outing lasting 6 innings while allowing 2 runs ( 0 earned ) and striking out 2. His ERA on the season is in Peoria 1.32. He was working out of the pen in Daytona but since moving to a starting role (and moving down a level) he has been much better. Javier Baez was 2-5 and really needs to work on take a few more walks every now and then. He also committed error # 14. 


Dan Vogelbach has wasted no time getting comfortable down in Boise. Last night he went 3-5 wtih a 2B  and look as agile as a cat on the base paths. Granted, his cat comp was Garfield but that's ok. Jeimer Candelario was 1-4 with a BB and Rock Shoulders was 2-4. Gioskar Amaya continues to be a hitting machine and is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Last night was 2-4 and is now hitting .328.
