In Commentary And Analysis, Minor Leagues by myles12 Comments

Fresno Grizzlies 4 @ Iowa Cubs 1

Mike Olt went 0-3.

Yoanner Negrin got the start and was pretty decent. He allowed 3 runs in 6 innings, but only 1 run was earned. In any case, he allowed 5 hits and a walk and struck out 7. Marcus Hatley and Zach Rosscup each went one perfect inning (Hatley fanned 2, Rosscup all 3 he faced), and Alberto Cabrera allowed a run in his inning of work, also striking out 2. As a team, the Cubs walked 1 and fanned 14. That's pretty nice. 

Montgomery @ Tennessee suspended.

Tampa Yankees 4 @ Daytona Cubs 5

Pretty solid day for the youngsters. Zeke DeVoss had 2 strikeouts but 3 singles. Elliot Soto was hitless but walked twice. Wes Darvill, batting cleanup, went 2-4 with a walk and a run scored. Anthony Giansanti went 3-5 with a pair of RBI. Bijan Rademacher doubled. Taiwan Easterling went 1-3 with a walk and a solo shot. 

Corey Black, newly acquired from the Yankees, went 5 scoreless innings. He allowed 5 hits and 2 walks, fanning 4. Austin Reed allowed a single unearned run in 3 innings, and Armando Rivero was very shaky in the 9th, allowing a trio of runs (one earned) in the frame.

Cedar Rapids Kernels 8 @ Kane County Cougars 4

Both Oliver Zapata and Dan Vogelbach walked three times this game. Vogelbach also singled. Giuseppe Papaccio, in the 2 hole, doubled and walked. He also committed a pair of errors. Jeimer Candelario singled and walked, as did Willson Contreras. Rock Shoulders, Marco Hernandez, and Reggie Golden each had a pair of hits; Golden had a double. 

Tayler Scott too the mound and it wasn't too good. He allowed 6 runs in 5 innings (3 earned), and walked 2 while giving up 6 hits. Both Justin Amlung and Nathan Dorris gave up an unearned run in 2 innings.

Vancouver Canadians 1 @ Boise Hawks 3

Danny Lockhart tripled and Rony Rodriguez doubled. Those were the only extra-base hits. Kris Bryant and Yasiel Balaguert both singled twice.

Jose Rosario went 5 innings allowed an unearned run (Kris Bryant's second fielding error). Jose Arias and Tyler Bremer went 3 and 1 innings of scoreless ball, respectively.

Vancouver Canadians 6 @ Boise Hawks 5

Oh hey, Kris Bryant was a HR shy of the cycle. Why is he still in Boise? Justin Marra finally had a nice night, going 2-5 with a doubled. Trevor Gretzky had 3 hits.

    Actually he’d be all over that. I remember discussing trying to get an all Courier font on a plain white background on ACB.

    This new site is kinda like a new pair of underwear. At first it’s constrictive, but after awhile it becomes a part of you.

    This old theme may be cleaned up now. We’ll see.

    We are going to have to get a new one, though. It would just be nice if we had some time to make necessary edits before it’s live.

    @ sitrick:

    Right. There are people Rizzo can and should be blocking or prevent you from signing. Abreu is definitely NOT one of them.

    Worst-case, you try to reverse the Rizzo trade of a couple years ago and get a pitcher or pitching prospect in return for him. He has a reasonably contract, so you could probably get something decent in return.
