Not a bad day for the Cubs’ top prospect.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
A couple of the Cubs’ top prospects get to play in an All-Star Game of their own today.
The Cubs will have 10 days to trade, waive or release Roach.
The 20-year-old Cuban outfielder is one of the best IFA’s on the market.
Some minor league contests going on, and the latest scores and highlights from around the system.
Schwarber’s strikeout and walk rates are still ugly at AAA, but the sample is tiny and the rest of what he’s doing is excellent.
The Cubs’ man in charge of scouting and player development knows it’s important to understand your own players well before making trade decisions.
An interesting story to follow. Also: scores and highlights from around the Cubs’ farm system.
Put a bat in Kyle Schwarber’s hands, and he is a dangerous man.
You probably know two of the names without looking, but the third guy is way up there, too.
A whole lot going on in the minor leagues right now.
All the intriguing bullpen depth.
Wada had a mixed outing, but the results weren’t the most important thing. Soriano looked strong.
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.
