Jae Hoon Ha
Iowa Cubs 3 @ Salt Lake Bees 6
Mike Olt went 0-4. Jae-Hoon Ha went 2-3 with a walk. No one else played so don't even look. I seriously considered linking that score to a rick roll.
Justin Grimm had a pretty forgettable 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 5 SO start. Casey Coleman was dicey in his scoreless frame, but then Marcus Hatley allowed 4 runs in 0.2 innings. Ick. Marcos Mateo, newly promoted, pitched 1.1 scoreless.
Birmingham Barons 2 @ Tennessee Smokies 3
Javier Baez did everything Javier Baez does. He went 1-3 with a HR, a walk, and 2 strikeouts. TTO%: 100. Of course, he also committed an error. Christian Villanueva had a double as did Chad Noble.
Matt Loosen is back in Tennessee and he had a decent outing. Jeffry Antigua blew the save but received the win, with 2.2 scoreless innings (he allowed one of a bases-loaded inheritance to score). Frank Batista had the save.
Daytona Cubs 2 @ Fort Myers Miracle 1
Anthony Giansanti played 1B AGAIN. I don't get it. He went 3-4 with a double. Dustin Geiger hit a home run, and Pin-Chieh Chen was 3-3 pinch hitting and playing RF. Chadd Krist had a pair of singles. The Cubs had 12 hits but only sent 2 home.
Ivan Pineyro, a fairly intriguing prospect, went 6 dominant innings, allowing 3 baserunners and striking out 7. Austin Reed blew the save but allowed a run in 2 innings, not awful. Frank of the Valley allowed 2 hits in his frame, but neither scored.
Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 3 @ Kane County Cougars 6
Gioskar Amaya was 2-4 with a double. Albert Almora walked, as did Dan Vogelbach (he also had a hit and 2 runs). Jeimer Candelario had 2 hits, as did Rock Shoulders. They both homered, but Shoulders walked also.
Felix Pena had a decent start. 7 innings, 7 hits, 3 runs (1 earned), 3 walks, 1 strikeout. Sheldon McDonald and Michael Hamman each had a scoreless inning.
Boise Hawks 4 @ Everett AquaSox 7
Kris Bryant was 1-4 with a pair of K's. The real damage was a 2-run blast by Yasiel Balaguert, who also had a single and another RBI. Jacob Rogers singled twice and walked. Kevin Encarnacion had a trio of singles.
Paul Blackburn allowed 2 runs in as many innings. Duane Underwood allowed 4 in as many innings, and Masek allowed 1 in 2 innings. Masek's run was unearned (on his own missed catch); he also fanned 5.
DSL Nationals 0 @ DSL Cubs 5
VSL Cubs 6 @ VSL Mariners 8
AZL Giants 1 @ AZL Cubs 2
I'll give you three guesses who started this game.

BEST OF MAXIM
Well, the Cubs didn't trade anyone today. With DeJesus and Schierholtz in the fold for 2014 (though either could be traded in the offseason, I really doubt it), the Cubs 2014 roster (with no signings) looks like this:
C: Welington Castillo
1B: Anthony Rizzo
2B: Darwin Barney
SS: Starlin Castro
3B: Mike Olt
LF: Junior Lake
CF: David DeJesus
RF: Nate Schierholtz
Iowa Cubs 4 @ Salt Lake Bees 5
I. Don't. Care. And neither do you. Mike Olt went 1-4, but every time he didn't single, he struck out. Logan Watkins also singled, as did a bunch of other people. What do you want from me? At least Jae-Hoon Ha doubled and homered; Edwin Mayonnaise and Luis Flores doubled too. The I-Cubs struck out 14 times and walked twice.

Baseball players who are likely to be dealt at the deadline battle a multitude of emotions about the life-changing move — but they aren’t the only ones affected by the trades.
David DeJesus, an outfielder for the Chicago Cubs was a name that was floated around in trade rumors throughout the past couple of weeks, and although the Cubs found new homes for many of their starters...
Eloy Jimenez officially announced his signing with the Cubs today in a press conference in the Dominican Republic. The move has been long-rumored, but the Cubs asked him to wait until after the trade deadline to make it official.

In this edition of the Future Alert, I’d like to update the WSD Top 13 Prospect List, compare our farm system today to it at various points over the past year and a half, and catch up on the latest news across the Cubs system.

Although trade conversations really didn't go anywhere the Chicago Cubs did listen to offers for starter Jeff Samardzija before the non-wavier deadline expired Wednesday.
In the real world of baseball business it is incumbent upon top executives to listen to offers on any and all of their players. In the sensitive world of long-term contracts and player control the issues can...
The Cubs have determined they aren't going to get the blockbuster package they sought for Jeff Samardzija right now so they will try again to lock him up or trade him in the winter.
If a third attempt to sign him to a big extension fails in the offseason a trade will become much more likely.
The Cubs were looking for a package of frontline prospects for Samarardzija and only...
Edwin Jackson pitched eight solid innings, David DeJesus drove in three runs and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 on Wednesday night to salvage the finale of the four-game series.
Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer and Starlin Castro belted a solo shot as Chicago closed out a 14-13 July, its first winning calendar month since it went 15-10 last July. Jackson allowed...
Theo Epstein left the Boston Red Sox about two years ago, but he didn’t leave Boston for good. During the MLB offseason, he and his family would retreat to their Chestnut Hill, Mass., home and take in the sights of the city Epstein once helped bring the Commissioner’s Trophy to.
Now, it seems as if Epstein is ready to sever all ties. The Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations...
TheJedi have already knocked out a number of trades that today shouldn't bring too much excitement, but there's still a few pieces left on the trading block. The most likely is Nate Schierholtz whom Jayson Stark reiterates is the most likely Cub to be dealt today. The Pirates and Rangers seem like the most likely spots at the moment.
Heyman says Jeff Samardzija won't...
This morning Ken Rosenthal said that the Cubs were shopping David DeJesus and Nate Schierholtz. I did a trade value on Schierholtz a few weeks ago, noting that it would probably take a Grade B hitting prospect to land him. Let’s take a look at the value of DeJesus, which will provide a better opportunity to compare both players.
NOTE: The purpose here isn’t to suggest the Pirates...
