The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by the City of Racine




Trey McNutt made his return from the 7 day DL and worked 3 scoreless innings. His MO this season is 3-4 inning appearances and unless he can get his stamina up its time to give him the bullpen test.


Erick Joksich had a strong start working 7 IP striking out 8 and only allowing 1 ER. Spellcheck Jr's batting average continues to trend in the right direction after a slow start. Szzrzr is now hitting .220 for the season but has a stronger OBP due to his increased walk rate.


Let me start by saying fucking PJ Francescon. He is a liar and snake. That said he had another stellar outing working 6 IP allowing 2 hits no walks and striking out 8. Andrew McKirahan got his 2nd save of the year and looks like a legit future bullpen guy but lets get back to Francescon who remember is a world class dickhead. He has 26 k's to 4 walks in 27 IP. Thats very good. I say get this kid up to Daytona.

UPDATE- Sources have informed me that PJ Francescon can't achieve ejaculation until he kills a dog. So keep that in mind. 

EXST h/t to AZ Phil

Looks like Javier Baez continues to hit but has yet to walk all EXST. So basically he is the perfect Cub. Whitenack continues his rehab work and Rock Shoulders continues to have the best name in the minors.
