Cubs Minor League Daily: Kris Bryant Slams the Iowa Cubs to a Win

Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

iowa cubs logoThe title pretty much says it all. Kris Bryant’s sixth Iowa homer and twenty eighth season homer came with the bases loaded in the eighth and put the Cubs ahead.

I don’t think this article needs any more introduction than that. The video pretty much speaks for itself.

Performances of Note

Other News

  • In case you missed it yesterday, Jason McLeod is staying with the Cubs organization. On a scale of happiness, this should rate roughly equal to winning a lifetime supply of chocolate peppermint milk shakes banana fluffernutter smoothies.
  • I went looking last night, and since 2006 I could only find three hitters with at least 250 PA in the Southern League who finished with an ISO over .300. Kris Bryant leads the pack at .347. Paul Goldschmidt is next at .320, followed by Neftali Soto at .303. Had I lowered the threshold to 240 PA I would have picked up Giancarlo Stanton (2010 edition) at .417 and Javier Baez at .344.
