The Cubs made two handfuls of expected cuts yesterday which included optioning Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler, Albert Almora, Arismendy Alcantara, Logan Watkins, Matt Szczur, Jeudy Valdez, Carlos Pimentel and Eric Jokisch...releasing Aaron Cunningham brings it up to 10.

Cubs sign Eli Whiteside, Jeudy Valdez to Minor League deals

It was announced on Twitter that the Chicago Cubs have picked up both catcher Eli Whiteside and Jeudy Valdez yesterday.

Daily Friar 2.24.13

After a very convincing win Friday against the Mariners, the Padres couldn’t quite get things done yesterday. That’s not to say they didn’t go down without a fight though. They did put up a five run ninth inning to close the gap. But alas it was all for not as the Padres dropped game two to the Mariners. There was plenty of good things to take from the game though, as Tyson...

Organizational Report: June 2012

(Sorry about missing the May report. Must've hit the snooze button that month.)San Diego’s farm system is faring very much like the big league club: occupying last or nearly last in their respective divisions, top to bottom. So, despite the teams not performing, fortunately there are some interesting individual performances that are noteworthy. Some expected, others not. DSL...

MadFriars' Farm Report April 24

Its hard to win a game when your pitcher is out of the game before the home team has a chance to bat. Needless to say, Tucson lost. Elsewhere around the league the lower levels had major success, and the Missions got a monster HR out of Jeudy Valdez though 3 errors did them in.
