He’s striking out a ton in A-ball these days.

The Cubs go for a third win in a row, which would be swell.
The 35-year-old reliever was released by the Dodgers yesterday.
With two catchers going down in just a few days, the Nationals will probably be in the catcher market soon.
Wainwright thinks the Cubs should stop “babying” Jeff Samardzija.
He has two explanations. Sveum also says he looks at the standings, Anthony Rizzo is the future, and someone says the Cubs should blow up Wrigley Field.
Nice starts from Trey McNutt, Austin Kirk, and Kyler Burke tonight, and a nice combined effort from the Iowa bullpen.
Screw you, Cardinals. (Yup, I would have said the same thing regardless of the outcome.)
Cubs, Cardinals, ESPN. At least one of those things is awesome. The other two are what make tonight’s game worth/easy watching.
If the Cubs do choose to extend Matt Garza, what might it say about how soon they expect to be competitive?
Volstad is going to get at least one more start, but Dale Sveum admits he’s started to think about what changes might need to be made.
Headline-writing is fun. But seriously, Soriano’s bat is smaller, Jeff Samardzija’s pitch count remains small, and Shawn Camp hopes his workload remains big.
The day was a good one for a number of reasons.
At least it wasn’t a sweep, yo.
Jeff Samardzija is on a salvage mission, which feels out of place, him looking like a pirate and all.
The Red Sox could certainly use him. Chris Volstad still has no answers, Dale Sveum noticed Welington Castillo issues, and Carlos Marmol’s injury is not serious.
Paul Hoilman had hit in 24 straight games, but the streak has finally come to an end.
At least today’s loss wasn’t heart-breaking and sleep-depriving.
Somehow, the Cubs will try to recover from last night.
A day too late, probably. Welington Castillo was rough behind the plate, the Cubs want to extend Matt Garza, and James Russell wants to start.
