Wada had a mixed outing, but the results weren’t the most important thing. Soriano looked strong.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
He’ll pitch in the second game of today’s doubleheader. Lately, he’s been cruising at Iowa.
And two more Cubs prospects come in for extra discussion.
Donn Roach started yesterday for the Iowa Cubs, which could give a hint at Tuesday’s doubleheader starter.
Dylan Cease was fantastic for three innings last night, and the dreaming is coming.
La Stella had already been out more than 60 days with an oblique injury.
The Cubs needed a back-up catcher for a week, and that’s why they had Teagarden at the ready at Iowa.
Jacob Hannemann really does make a ridiculous catch in the outfield every time you look. Also: Schwarber 4-4 with a walk. No big deal.
The Cubs do make a minor IFA-related trade after all.
So many quality young players on the Cubs’ short-season Low-A team right now.
There’s likely much more on the way. The Cubs reportedly committed $8.65 million today, alone.
The tall lefty was one of four big money picks for the Cubs in the draft.
The 18-year-old outfielder is a physical beast and he’s working on becoming a polished hitter. Appropriate to discuss him on IFA Day.
Underwood will rest before resuming throwing. This is about as good as the new could have been.
It tentatively looks like the Cubs will be bringing in a ton of prospects, but may not be as involved in the elite tier. (UPDATES: Signings rolling in.)
It’s a big day, and scores and performances from the farm can get you started.
The games are played July 10 through 19 in Toronto.
Two years ago, it was one of the busiest days of the year.
