Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
Depth is the operative word when it comes to second base in the Cubs’ system. Usually an organizational spot for busted prospects, the Cubs actually have quality at 2B.
Despite the individual plaudits their top prospects have received, BA is more down on the Cubs overall than some other pundits.
So, I guess that means they’re cut. Putnam is just 25, so hopefully he’ll head to Iowa to and keep working at it.
As little depth as there was at catcher, you’d have to say that shortstop and third base fall at the other end of the spectrum.
Next to the big trio, who might be a guy to watch this year for the Cubs? Also: you can share your thoughts on the Wrigley renovation at a community meeting today.
Other than the obvious Mr. Vogelbach, how is the Cubs’ organizational depth at first base? And dare I even ask about catcher?
The righty wasn’t expected to make the pen, since he could be freely optioned.
McLeod says Rivero hasn’t pitched competitively in a year, so it’s going to be a process getting him back up to speed.
Brent Lillibridge is pretty clearly making the team, but what’s happening in the extremely crowded bullpen race?
According to Baseball America’s Ben Badler, who describes Rivero as a possible future middle reliever on the Cubs.
The two pitchers were overslot draftees with health concerns back in 2011.
We’ll still see some of Soler and Baez, though.
It won’t keep him on the roster, but it’s been pretty fun to watch.
He’ll miss four to eight weeks, but the whole ordeal is merely a “pain-in-the-but-type thing.”
