A top prospect pulls off the feat. Also, a craft beer festival at Kane County.

Another shutout at home. That’s a sweep for the Reds.
Chris Rusin tries to keep his good season rolling, and the Cubs look to avoid the sweep.
The Cubs spent a lot internationally, but haven’t spent much on payroll. Are those things really all that related?
Fortunately it is his non-throwing elbow, and it will not require surgery.
There are only a few weeks left, so it’s not a huge surprise. Soler could still play in the Fall.
The Cubs will soon discuss who’s coming up, but there might not be a ton to discuss.
Kris Bryant and Dan Vogelback arrived in Daytona yesterday, and immediately did what they do.
A few homers and a generally nice game by the bullpen weren’t enough.
Jeff Samardzija could use a bounce-back game. Also, Junior Lake back in center field.
Interesting bits from around baseball.
BN shirts in Denver, New York, Sweden … and there’s free shipping if you want to get in on it.
Many teams look fantastic, and fascinating. The Cubs are not one of those teams.
Yesterday’s discussion focused on Lake as a left fielder, but last night he started in center. How does that change things?
He’s joining Kris Bryant for the stretch run. It’s a prospect-heavy set of Bullets today …
Getting ready for a playoff run, the Daytona Cubs are looking mighty good. Also: live impressions from AA Tennessee.
Cubs couldn’t do anything against Latos.
Bryant will be skipping low-A and heading straight to High-A to close out the season.
The Cubs and Travis Wood head home to take on the Reds.
What kind of line is reasonable to expect out of Junior Lake going forward? How much defensive value? Is it enough to hold down a starting job in left field?
He joins Darren Rovell as the big name guests, and I will be lurking somewhere in the crowd.
