JOT: Cubs Minor League Recap 6-17-13

Omaha Storm Chasers 0 @ Iowa Cubs 2 No walks and a single extra-base hit (Logan Watkins, double). You'd think the Cubs lost, right? Wrong: Chris Rusin pitched a shutout because he's on a mission to make me look as stupid as possible. 5 hits and a walk, and 8 strikeouts.  Mississippi Braves 1 @ Tennessee Smokies 2  1-8 each had a hit, but they were all singles.

The Children Are The Future – Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Mish

  Iowa Mercifully the Iowa Cubs season ended last night due to the final 4 games in NO being canceled by Hurricane Issac. Iowa started the season off with more talent than any other minor league affiliate but the promotion a thon of the last few months ravaged this roster to the point where even linking to the box score was too much effort. Look for Cardenas, Campana and a few RP...

The Children Are The Future-Cubs Minor League Update Sponsored by Fingers Crossed LLC

Iowa Chris Rusin went back to Iowa and turned in a great start working 7 IP and allowing 3 ER while striking out 7. Rusin will be back soon so hopefully he took one more ride on the Des Moines pleasure float. Smokies Jae Hoon Ha went 3-4 with a triple and has raised his OBP to .356. Trey McNutt worked two scoreless innings out of the pen and has been much better as of late in relief...

We'll keep an eye on this kid as it seems like he has a bright future.  Smokies Jae Hoon Ha went 2-4 and Trey McNutt worked a scoreless inning out of the pen.

Ha also gunned down a runner at the plate.  Junior Lake went 2-4 and is hitting .286. Trey McNutt pitched a clean inning out of the bullpen.

Junior Lake hit 2-5 with a double but also committed his 25th error in the field. Austin Kirk must have been promoted as he worked a clean inning in relief.

Trey McNutt makes best of it

Saw this on my rss feed today about Trey McNutt.  As in the abstract, McNutt is saying, this process is not exact. Unfortunately, Chicago's seventh-ranked prospect has been far from spot-on himself. Southern League batters are batting .266 against him, and he's posted a 55-to-39 strikeout-to-walk ratio unbefitting his powerful repertoire. After 17 starts, his last eight...

Iowa There isn't anyone left in Iowa to write about so lets just say Casey Coleman had a good start. Also, Esmalin Caridad should be back up in the pen. He has been very tough this year. Smokies Trey McNutt struck out 3 and allowed 1 ER in 3 IP. I thought they would keep this guy in 1 inning situations to see how he responded to that role but if anything it seems he is getting...

Iowa The Greg Of Rohan celebrated his arrival to a more age appropriate level by hitting 2 HR's in 4 AB's. Rohan is 26 so he's probably the new Brad ******* Snyder! but still he has 19 HR's this year across three levels. Brett Jackson did Brett Jackson things hitting 3-5 with a triple and a strikeout.

Iowa Nobody really did much. Adrian Cardenas was 2-5 and I still think will be a good utility guy for us next year. Jackson was 1-4 with the required strikeout. His quest for 200 continues.  Smokies Junior Lake is on a hot streak hitting 2 HR's last night to go with the one he hit yesterday. He also managed to walk and promptly threw up with self loathing upon making it to 1st...

Iowa Brett Jackson hit a triple. He also struck out. That is all. Smokies Logan Watkins was 3-6 and swiped his 18th bag of the year. Watkins is now sporting a stylish .370 OBP and will most likely end up in Iowa next season. Jae Hoon Ha was also 3-6 and hit his 4th HR of the year. On the pitching side of things Zach Rosscup earned a K on 5 of the 6 outs he recorded which is great...

Iowa Josh Vitters went 2-4 with a double and raised his average to .302. Alberto Cabrera struck out 4 in 2.2 IP. Cabrera is getting some buzz as a future closer after moving to the pen this year. He was pretty awful as a starter and we only have 45 IP to work of but as a reliever he is posting excellent #'s across the board.  Smokies Trey McNutt had what I guess qualifies as...

Brett Jackson struck out twice.  Smokies Trey McNutt is bad at sports right now. He needs to go the bullpen. Junior Lake was 2-5 and is batting .303. Daytona Matt Szczur had a beastly night.
