Beeler gets the start tonight against the Rockies. Here’s hoping he keeps the ball down.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
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.
Positivity at the big league level yesterday, and a whole bunch more down on the farm.
Great news on Baez’s recovery. Can’t wait to see him back in action.
21-year-old third baseman Jeimer Candelario is a notable prospect, and he gets the bump to AA Tennessee.
Vogelbach might not be ready to return to AA until early August, which would have certain implications for the Cubs.
USA Baseball didn’t win the gold, though, and Almora returns to AA Tennessee.
Some afternoon enjoyment for you. Torres is an 18-year-old shortstop in full season ball, and he made a hell of a play.
