I know he was pitching well down in extended spring but have not heard much since...anyone know where he is now? Was hoping he would be able to bounce back quickly from TJ and keep rising through the system like last year.

I'm pretty sure he is still down there. He pitched a few days ago and I'm sure he is still on a strict pitch count.

According to Arizona Phil from thecubreporter.com he had the following line last week.

5.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 4 K, 60 pitches (44 strikes), 8/2 GO/FO

From his stats from AZ Phil it looks like he has been pretty dominant at EXST.

This was his updated stat line on the 20th according to AZ Phil

0.82 WHIP – 0.82 ERA – .225 OppBA (8 GAMES - 8 GS) – 22.0 IP, 16 H, 3 R (2 ER), 2 BB, 19 K, 1 HR, 1 GIDP, 1 ERROR

Read Luke's minor league updates. Says a lot about him. He sounds good.

Great, looks to be picking up where he left off. I was really excited about him before the injury.

I asked Kevin Goldstein about him yesterday. If he comes back fully healthy, Goldstein says Whitenack could be a middle-of-the-rotation type in the bigs.

Which only makes me more bummed that was hurt in the first place.

TJ work is so advanced and commonplace if he is willing put the rehab in he should recover to state before the injury.

After EXST is he likely to go back to AA or will they put him back in A+

He's still technically on the AA roster, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Cubs let him work a bit at High A first. Warmer weather, a little less stress, etc.

Robby has one of the best curve balls in the minors. Can't wait to see him back in action
