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


Josh Vitters went 2-4 with a double and raised his average to .302. Alberto Cabrera struck out 4 in 2.2 IP. Cabrera is getting some buzz as a future closer after moving to the pen this year. He was pretty awful as a starter and we only have 45 IP to work of but as a reliever he is posting excellent #'s across the board. 


Trey McNutt had what I guess qualifies as a good start for him these days working 5 IP giving up 2 walks 1 ER and striking out 2 batters. Meh. 


Matt Szczur drew 3 more walks and stole 2 more bases. Despite being in a 2-26 slump he has kept taking his walks and still provided value at the plate. I'm McLovin' this guy. Austin Kirk had a typical Kirk start working 6 IP and allowing 2 ER. 


Javier Baez got on base once and promptly stole his 14th base. That's about all that happened. 


Game ended early due to rain which is probably a good thing because it was awful for all Cub prospects involved. 


Tim Saunders is batting over .500 which is good. He's also 22 years old and in rookie ball so that's not as good. Our 5th round pick from this years draft Anthony Prieto made his debut on and pitched a scoreless inning.
