The latest minor league scores and highlights – without any hugs.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
Wondering where to look for potential trades involving Cubs minor leaguers today?
The Padres are believed to want a young shortstop, and the Cubs are believed to like controllable Padres pitching.
A new reliever for the Cubs: submariner Ben Rowen.
And he did it with a nice, controlled swing.
It doesn’t always mean anything, but, if it’s not an injury, you naturally start wondering about a promotion or a trade.
Beeler gets the start tonight against the Rockies. Here’s hoping he keeps the ball down.
Yes, La Stella. There’s an actual Tommy La Stella health update here.
It seems like Baez could be headed back to Iowa soon, though they’ll have to make a roster move to clear a spot for him.
It’s not clear what the future – near or long-term – holds for Olt, but he’s hot right now at AAA Iowa.
It was fun while it lasted. Scores and highlights from around the Cubs’ farm system.
Baez’s rehab in Arizona is likely winding down, with a return to Iowa on the horizon.
And, just for fun: Baez hasn’t struck out yet in Arizona.
The odd connections you can find if you look. Also: a swing around the Cubs’ minor league teams.
Almora recently returned from playing in the Pan-Am Games. He could still be a big part of the Cubs’ future, but it’s a work in progress.
Kyle Schwarber, Gleyber Torres and Billy McKinney lead a new wave of highly touted Cubs prospects.
Happ tore up the Northwest League, so it’s on to full season ball.
By all accounts, Baez looked healthy, fit, and very into the game.
But the performances down on the farm are still impressive, and, for many, it’s the perfect time of year to be breaking out.
Junior Lake, Matt Szczur, Christian Villanueva, and Mike Olt are all performing well at Iowa right now. That could mean help in the future in more ways than one.
