A couple non-prospects who make you wonder about future contributions.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
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.
The Cubs’ newest outfielder doesn’t hit much, but he doesn’t strike out, has great speed, and plays quality outfield defense.
He fouled a ball off of his foot earlier in the week, and apparently started feeling it too much last night.
If the Cubs bring up an outfielder to replace Straily, might we finally see Jorge Soler? Or will it be someone else?
And on his shirsey night, to boot. You can’t write this stuff … you can just post pictures and video.
Minor league salaries are a topic for the next Commissioner, whether he wants to deal with it or not.
