Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
The 29-year-old righty was pitching quite well at AAA Iowa, but there wasn’t going to be a spot for him this year.
I didn’t forget! Junior Lake got the business, Alfonso Soriano’s roster spot needs a taker, and Scott Baker’s rehab starts aren’t going well just yet.
The 18-year-old righty is a quality prospect who could see Stateside work almost immediately.
Josh Vitters is hurt again, and it’s looking like 2013 is just going to be a wash for him. Which is a shame.
Garza was fantastic yesterday for the Rangers, though he did pull a Garza.

It looked like a good package to Cubs fans, and everyone else seems to agree. More on the deal and the prospects involved.
Kris Bryant had a rough debut at Boise last night.
