EXST Giants drub EXST Cubs

The EXST Giants put up a six spot in the bottom of the 1st inning en route to a 12-7 victory over the EXST Cubs at Indian School Park Field #2 in Scottsdale this morning. 

RHP Jose Pina, rehabbing at Extended Spring Training from 2007 TJ surgery, did not get out of the 1st inning, allowing four runs on three hits and a walk before being relieved.

RHP Dionis Nunez followed, and he was just as bad, allowing four more runs on seven hits and a walk. He was saved further damage thanks to two Giants runners getting thrown out trying to take an extra base.

On offense, Nelson Perez hit a three-run home run over the RF fence in the top of the 5th that cut the Giants lead to 8-7, but the Cubs were unable to score any more runs over the last five innings. 

In EXST Cubs news, Cubs Player Development Director Oneri Fleita will be in town this weekend, presumably to help determine who goes to Boise, who might get advanced to Peoria, and who stays at Fitch Park for the summer. (And maybe who gets released). To that end, the EXST Cubs were thrilled to find out that they will be having a special extra workout at Fitch Park this coming Sunday (Sunday is normally a day off).

Here is today's abridged box score (Cubs players only)...

7. Kevin Soto, CF: 1-4 (RBI, 2 K)
8. Starlin Castro, 3B: 2-3 (2B, BB)
9. Alvaro Sosa, DH #2: 0-4 (K)
10. Jose Made, 2B: 2-4 (R, K)
NOTE: DH #1 Carlos Perez only batted when he wasn't otherwise occupied warming up a relief pitcher in the bullpen

  • "According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Cubs will not have a contract extension in place with Aroldis Chapman when their trade for the closer becomes official."

    hmmm.

  • chap's a FA after this season. i can't imagine him signing a 2-3 year deal...4+ is probably a starting point, though 3 might do it.

  • Per Patrick Mooney, it's SS Gleyber Torres, RHP Adam Warren, RF Billy McKinney, and CF Rashad Crawford for Aroldis Chapman

  • That is a hell of a lot if they don't get an extention done. I'm assuming Chapman is going to be the closer with Rondon in the 8th and Strop in the 7th. That sounds great but Rondon #s aren't as good in non-save situations so we'll see how he responds to being the setup man.

  • I certainly hope he signed an extension. I would have been ok with this package for Miller, it is too much for 2 (well 3, hopefully) of Chapman. Of course, we win the World Series, I will retract this immediately.

  • @JonHeyman: Yanks and Cubs have a deal. Torres, mckinney, Warren and likely 1 more to NYY.

  • that is a hell of a lot of talent to shift for a reliever who's gonna get paid top-scale "free agent" type money in 2017+ after a 1/2 year rental for the remainder of 2016.

  • Cubs are going to need a 2nd baseman of the future. I'm still not convinced Baez can be that offensively on an everyday basis.

  • Updating: Per @Joelsherman1, #Cubs-#Yankees trade, if completed, would be Chapman for Torres, Warren and likely two others.

    Can only imagine they'd only give that much up if he's signing an extension.

  • The official police report on Chapman:

    You can draw your own conclusions.

  • Even from an on-field perspective, Torres is a 19-year-old beating up High-A pitching who also plays a great SS. Even if he never develops a legit MLB power stroke, he's still an obvious 4-tool guy with a very high floor. Sucks to trade away his next 6-8 years for a closer, albeit a great one.

  • "Like the Chapman deal for Cubs from on-field POV, wish I didn't now have to feel lousy following an otherwise likable Cubs team." @jonahkeri

    pretty much sums up my feelings
