daytona cubs logoIn Luke’s temporary absence, BN’er JulioZuleta (amazingly just a pen name) offered up a take on the Cubs’ minor league action yesterday:

Iowa beat Nashville 4-1 win despite being outhit 10-3.

  • Logan Watkins went 0-3 dropping average to .205 (but still a nice .364 OBP)
  • Ryan Sweeney tripled and walked
  • Brett Jackson didn’t play (not sure why)
  • Brooks Raley: 6IP, 0ER, 7K
  • Yoanner Negrin (who I think should, and will, get a look for a bullpen spot) went 2 shutout
  • innings. For the year he has gone 9.2 IP without allowing a run (and a 13/2 K/BB). He’s
  • almost 29 and has some Mexican league experience. He can’t be much worse than what
  • the Cubs are throwing out there.
  • Side note: other potential bullpen guys are blowing (Wade 8.2 IP, 9ER, 14 H, 4 BB; Putnam 5.1 IP 5 ER; Chapman 6.1 IP, 12 ER)

Tennessee beat Huntsville 4-3.

  • Matt Szczur was 2-3 with his first extra-base hit (a homer), and is hitting .304. He also stole a base (and got picked off once)
  • Christian Villanueva was 1-3 with a double
  • Alberto Cabrera: 6IP, 7H, 2ER, 5K
  • Rubi Silva is scorching hot: 2-4 with another HR (3rd this year), hitting .405
  • Roni Torreyes was 0-2 with a walk

Daytona lost to Clearwater 15-6. Clearwater had 27 hits (everyone had at least 2 hits, 4 guys had
at least 4 hits, ridiculous).

  • Javy Baez: 1-5, HR (smiley face), 3Ks (frowny face)
  • Stephen Bruno and John Andreoli are still dominating
  • Bruno: 2-2, 2B, 2BB, .422AVG .490 OBP
  • Andreoli: 2-3, BB .364AVG .472 OBP (could be like Campana, but actually
  • have value)
  • Ryan Searle got rocked: 4.2 15H 7ER
  • Obviously the bullpen struggled, too
  • Also, not sure why, but this was the 6th game without Soler. They may be holding him out until after Wednesday because they’re playing the team that he went after.

Kane County split a DH with Beloit (played 7 innings in each game)

  • Gioskar Amaya: 2-7, BB
  • Dan Vogelbach: 2-7, BB
  • Jeimer Candelario: 2-7, 2B (it’s a theme)
  • Rock Shoulders: 2-6
  • Marco Hernandez: 3-7 (hit a double in each game, committed an error in each game)
  • Jose Arias stated game 1: 4IP, 3R, 0ER
  • Jeff Antigua got the win with three scoreless innings
  • Michael Heesch started game 2, and went 1.2 innings giving up six runs, but only two earned.

Keep Reading BN ...
