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


Josh Vitters lives! Determined to post a totally average OPS at every level of the minors Vitters hit his 6th HR yesterday and now sits with a pedestrian .767 OPS. Much like his .770 OPS of 2011 or his .770 OPS of 2009. Its weird to see a prospect who doesn't improve or get noticeably worse as he rises through the system. Brett Jackson chimed in with a pair of hits and a SB.


Junior Lake has ended his TRANSFORMATION! Everyone else continues to suck as well.


No game but tonight marks the return of Rob Whitenack who has torn up AZL so far. 


Javier Baez made his debut and went 2-4. His first single turned into an out due to AGGRESSIVE BASERUNNING! as he tried to make it a double and was thrown out. Jose Rosario can get the strikeouts as he is averaging almost a K per IP but is giving up his fair share of hits and walks to go with it. Maybe a bullpen test is in order.
