The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by The Weyland Yutani Corporation


Lots of hitting going on as Iowa put up 13 on Memphis.

Brett Jackson went 4-5 and raised his batting average by almost 30 points. Adrian Cardenas went 3-5 and really by this point should be here over DeWitt. Vitters went 2-5 and Dave Sappelt went 3-6 with a HR. 


Logan Watkins had a great game going 2-5 with a HR and SB. Kevin Rhoderick is working on his 2nd straight year of dominance in the bullpen. Hopefully we see him sooner than later in Chicago. 


Austin Kirk continues to have the best season of any SP in our system going 8 IP and allowing 2 ER. Kirk is sporting a 1.54 ERA but not striking a ton of guys out and does not have great stuff. Its hard to see him as anything other than a fringy 5th or most likely a bullpen arm. The Cubs decided to move Szrzrz to the 3 spot after his recent hot streak but he went 0-5.
