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


Brett Jackson is batting .238 in AAA. He strikes out a third of the time he bats. There is still some work to do here. Vitters on the other hand had a good game going 3-4 with a BB, 2 SB and 2 RBI's. Vitters is having a Vitters season not really sucking but not doing well either. 


Junior Lake went 1-4 and with the help of AGGRESSIVE BASE RUNNING! was promptly removed from the base path. Dae Eun Rhee had his first good start in quite awhile going 7.2 IP walking 1 and striking out 4 while not allowing a run. 


Matt Szrzrzr was 1-3 when he took a pitch off the hand and had to leave the game. Word was that its not a major deal but we might see him miss tonights game. My K-State crush AJ Morris continues his injury comeback striking out 2 in his scoreless inning of relief. Tony Zych also worked a clean inning of his own.


The good news is Geraldo Concepcion got out of the first. The bad news is he walked 5 guys in those 4 innings while striking out 1 batter. I was optimistic that our scouts knew what they were doing but this thing has been a big bowl of FAIL so far. When you have 3 times as many runs allowed to strikeouts in 10 innings things aren't working. Ben Wells followed and gave up 2 ER in his 4 innings while striking out 3. Catcher Rafael Lopez went 2-3 and is now hitting .280 on the year.
