The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Fingers Crossed LLC


Chris Rusin went back to Iowa and turned in a great start working 7 IP and allowing 3 ER while striking out 7. Rusin will be back soon so hopefully he took one more ride on the Des Moines pleasure float.


Jae Hoon Ha went 3-4 with a triple and has raised his OBP to .356. Trey McNutt worked two scoreless innings out of the pen and has been much better as of late in relief work.


No Game


Dustin Geiger went 3-4 with 3 RBI's which was nice seeing as he has struggled as of late. Soler was 2-5 with a double and got his BA back to .315. Pin Chieh Chen was 2-4 with a BB and stole his 33rd base of the year. Jeffery Antigua struck out 7 over 7 scoreless IP. Antigua is way to advanced for Peoria however so don't get too excited. 


Jeimer Candelario went 2-3 with a walk. He's about the only one who had a good game. Rare off night for that offense.


Ben Carhart went 3-5 and is hitting .375. The heir to the rugged jacket empire is a bit old for the level though so we wont know what we have until next year when he gets promoted. Juan Paniagua who used to have a different name with like two other teams pitched last night striking out 3 in 1.2 IP. Keith Law was on hand and mentioned that Paniagua was up to 94-97 with a plus slider. That is nice to hear and seeing that the Paniagua version of this human being is "22" we will hopefully see this guy in Daytona or Tenn next season.
