If the Cubs wanted to stick with two lefties in the pen right now, there may not have been a spot for Schlitter.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
Each of the Cubs’ affiliates (except one) has a possible playoff story to tell.
Almost too many great performances to recount.
Javy and Jorge crushed, while Kyle has heated up immensely.
Teams are now dramatically limited in how they can scout players younger than 16.
A couple non-prospects who make you wonder about future contributions.
Each hit a shot to dead center last night.
Addison Russell is getting up there in Southern League homers.
Lots of different kinds of homers to enjoy today.
While some of the Cubs’ minor league teams are slumping, others are really kicking things up.
Russell is crushing the Southern League, and Almora is killing it defensively (improving offensively, too).
The Iowa Cubs are slumping at the wrong time. Probably didn’t help to lose so much talent to the big team.
How could it not be Burt Reynolds, right?
Yesterday’s MRI revealed no break. That’s good news.
