What two Cubs’ prospect rank in the top three in the organization in batting average, on base percentage, and slugging percentage?
One of the names is probably easy for you. Pretty much since the season began Dan Vogelbach has been all over the Daily, and it comes as no surprise that he leads the organization in AVG (.352) and OBP (.450), and is second in SLG (.565).
Make your guess now. The answer appears at the bottom of the article.
Scores From Yesterday
Iowa – The Cubs scored all their runs in the bottom of the ninth in this 3-2 win.
Tennessee – The Smokies had the day off.
Myrtle Beach – This game was postponed.
South Bend – A ninth inning rally fell short as South Bend lost 6-4.
Performances of Note
- [Iowa] Donn Roach allowed a run on 4 hits and 3 walks over 7 innings while striking out 3.
- [Iowa] Junior Lake doubled, walked, and finished 2 for 3. He singled in the 9th to walk the game off.
- [Iowa] Christian Villanueva also doubled as he finished 1 for 3.
- [South Bend] Francisco Carrillo pitched 2.2 innings of 2 hit relief, striking out one.
- [South Bend] Gleyber Torres doubled and finished 3 for 5. It was the only multi-hit game for the Cubs.
- [South Bend] Cael Brockmeyer also doubled for the Cubs’ only other extra base hit.
- As a result of the bus accident involving the Carolina Mudcats, the entire series between Myrtle Beach and Carolina has been postponed. Dates for the rescheduled games have not yet been announced.
- So, who is the other player (besides Vogelbach) to rank in the top three in the Cubs’ farm system in AVG, OBP, and SLG?
- Billy McKinney. The other guy in the Russell trade is second in AVG (.340), second in OBP (.432), and third in SLG (.544). The third guy on the batting average list is the catcher Willson Contreras. Number three in OBP is Mark Zagunis, and the system leader in slugging is, very unsurprisingly, Kyle Schwarber.
