Cubs Minor League Daily: Filling In and Filling Out the Box Score

daytona cubs logoIn Luke’s temporary absence, BN’er JulioZuleta (amazingly just a pen name) offered up a take on the Cubs’ minor league action yesterday:

Iowa beat Nashville 4-1 win despite being outhit 10-3.

  • Logan Watkins went 0-3 dropping average to .205 (but still a nice .364 OBP)
  • Ryan Sweeney tripled and walked
  • Brett Jackson didn’t play (not sure why)
  • Brooks Raley: 6IP, 0ER, 7K
  • Yoanner Negrin (who I think should, and will, get a look for a bullpen spot) went 2 shutout
  • innings. For the year he has gone 9.2 IP without allowing a run (and a 13/2 K/BB). He’s
  • almost 29 and has some Mexican league experience. He can’t be much worse than what
  • the Cubs are throwing out there.
  • Side note: other potential bullpen guys are blowing (Wade 8.2 IP, 9ER, 14 H, 4 BB; Putnam 5.1 IP 5 ER; Chapman 6.1 IP, 12 ER)
  • Tennessee beat Huntsville 4-3.

  • Matt Szczur was 2-3 with his first extra-base hit (a homer), and is hitting .304. He also stole a base (and got picked off once)
  • Christian Villanueva was 1-3 with a double
  • Alberto Cabrera: 6IP, 7H, 2ER, 5K
  • Rubi Silva is scorching hot: 2-4 with another HR (3rd this year), hitting .405
  • Roni Torreyes was 0-2 with a walk
  • Daytona lost to Clearwater 15-6. Clearwater had 27 hits (everyone had at least 2 hits, 4 guys had
    at least 4 hits, ridiculous).

  • Javy Baez: 1-5, HR (smiley face), 3Ks (frowny face)
  • Stephen Bruno and John Andreoli are still dominating
  • Bruno: 2-2, 2B, 2BB, .422AVG .490 OBP
  • Andreoli: 2-3, BB .364AVG .472 OBP (could be like Campana, but actually
  • have value)
  • Ryan Searle got rocked: 4.2 15H 7ER
  • Obviously the bullpen struggled, too
  • Also, not sure why, but this was the 6th game without Soler. They may be holding him out until after Wednesday because they’re playing the team that he went after.
  • Kane County split a DH with Beloit (played 7 innings in each game)

  • Gioskar Amaya: 2-7, BB
  • Dan Vogelbach: 2-7, BB
  • Jeimer Candelario: 2-7, 2B (it’s a theme)
  • Rock Shoulders: 2-6
  • Marco Hernandez: 3-7 (hit a double in each game, committed an error in each game)
  • Jose Arias stated game 1: 4IP, 3R, 0ER
  • Jeff Antigua got the win with three scoreless innings
  • Michael Heesch started game 2, and went 1.2 innings giving up six runs, but only two earned.
