Let me start by saying that I cannot answer this question. The Cubs have way more information than I do and I won't criticize them if at some point they choose to promote him. I won't criticize them if they leave him in High A.
I want to talk about something specifically. It's a comment I often hear and believe I read yesterday (may have been something Myles wrote, but...
Jesse Hodges reached base four times on a double, two singles, and a walk, drove-in three runs, and scored another, and Jose Morales reached base four times on a double, two singles, and a walk, scored a run, and stole a base, leading the AZL Cubs to a 7-2 victory over the Boise Hawks this morning at Fitch Park in Mesa, AZ. Kevin Encarnacion went 4-4 with three singles and a...

Is there a reasonable case in saying that the Chicago Cubs should have more players representing the team in the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star game?
Yes, the Cubs started off with a rocky April and early May; Yes, they are currently going through a losing streak in series wins; yes, they have struggling pitching...
I went to the game last night to see the big Cingrani vs. Garza matchup that, while not exactly the pitching porn of a Verlander vs. Darvish or Wainwright vs. Kershaw matchup, I had hoped it would be at least a Cinemax softcore pitching porn display. Unfortunately, it ended up being more of a pitching snuff film from the Cubs side as Garza got bound, whipped, and violated repeatedly...
The Chicago Cubs suspended Triple-A infielder Ian Stewart on Tuesday without pay for an indefinite period following his critical comments about the organization.
Stewart took to Twitter early Tuesday morning to vent his frustrations. He has played the entire season for Iowa, the Cubs' top minor league affiliate. He is due to make $2 million this year.
He tweeted: ''...
The Chicago Cubs have suspended IF Ian Stewart without pay for breach of contract (team loyalty). This according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun Times, who tweeted:
Stewart being suspended without pay, per loyalty clause, says Theo. term TBA.

Stewart went on a Twitter rant basically committing Cub-i-cide and it might have worked...
Edwin Jackson finally arrives
The 'real' Edwin Jackson showed up for the first time this season, striking out eight while allowing one run, one walk, and four hits in seven innings. More importantly, his fastball averaged 94.78 on the day, much closer to his career avg of 95 mph than the paltry low 93.x mph he had been throwing earlier this year. The velocity bump showed...

Let me preface this piece by stating that none of these players should be owned in re-draft leagues, but all three should be owned in any and all versions of a keeper format. Without further adieu, notes on the top three batting prospects in the Cubs loaded system:
Javier Baez, RHH SS – The 20-year old shortstop caught everyone’s attention during...
Prior to his suspension, it was clear that Chicago Cubs infielder Ian Stewart wasn't happy with his role with the team. He may not have to worry about this role much longer, as Paul Sullivan of The Chicago Tribune report that the Cubs are "likely" to release Stewart.
Cubs likely to part with Stewart.

The Chicago Cubs have placed right-handed reliever Zach Putnam on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow soreness.
Putnam, who had to leave Tuesday’s game due to the injury, is scheduled for an MRI so the extent of the damage can be assessed.
This season for the Chicago Cubs he has pitched 3.1 innings, allowing 7 earned runs while striking out four. Armed with a 2.700 WHIP,...
Kevin Encarnacion belted a bases-loaded three-run triple and a double and scored three runs, Yasiel; Balaguert singled three times, drove-in two runs, and scored another, and Xavier Batista collected three hits including a solo home run and an RBI single, helping one squad of Cubs defeat another sdquad of Cubs 12-6 in an Extended Spring Training intrasquad game played this morning...
Alright, let's find some sunshine through all the ****, eh? Your Bright Spots for today:
Fairly decent day for the trade bait on the major league club:
Nate Schierholtz was 1-3, with a home run that briefly gave the Cubs the lead.
James Russell, after giving up a leadoff double in the eighth, got through Choo, Votto, Phillips, and Bruce without giving up a hit (though Phillips...
It's depressing being a Cubs fan lately. The offense is terrible, the rotation seems to be coming back to earth, Starlin Castro is mired in the worst slump of his career, the best bullpen arm we have is Kevin Gregg…it's not pretty.
Given all this, it seems worthwhile to try and find something to be optimistic about, some glimmer of light at the end of this dark, dark...
Former Arizona Diamondbacks television analyst Mark Grace has been released from a Phoenix jail after completing a four-month DUI sentence under a work-release program.
The 48-year-old former first baseman with the Diamondbacks and the Chicago Cubs pleaded guilty on Jan. 31 to felony endangerment and misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol.
He began his sentence on Feb...
The Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox hosted games in some unusual weather elements on Monday night. Rain delays are common throughout the MLB season, but very rarely does fog invade a city to the point where player safety comes into question. The screenshot you see above is not one from a low quality camera [...]
