The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by RockSkew Grill


Anthony Rizzo just keeps hitting. He knocked out his 10th HR of the year last night and is now hitting .356. Luis Valbuena is also doing very well but at this point isn't anything but injury insurance. Frank Batista is really struggling in the bullpen since his promotion but is young-ish for the level so maybe he just needs time to adjust.


Kansas native Logan Watkins was about the only thing going on for the offense as he went 3-4. Watkins profiles as a utility IF as he can play 2B/SS. I think you'll see him in the majors by 2014. 


Nobody did anything worth writing about. Zach Cates continues to be really really bad as a SP.


Kyle(r) Burke put in another decent start working 6.1 innings of 2 ER ball. 1B Paul Hoilman went 2-4 with a triple and has really come on strong as of late. Taiwan Easterling is also finally showing some signs of life at the plate and is now hitting ..233 after a horrid start.
