Opening Day Minor League Wrap
We'll see how this works. I created an account at First Inning and it allows you to track certain minor leaguers. I thought I'd try to keep up with my top 16 prospects on a nearly daily basis. You may be interested in others, but it's my list, so go get your own. They haven't made Hayden Simpson available yet, so I will add him once they do to replace Darwin Barney, who of course is with the major league club.

Hayden Simpson did pitch last night making his Cub organizational debut and seemed to bring his good stuff. 3.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K giving up 1 solo home run. I'll also mention Thomas Diamond's line with Iowa since he's one of the names in the mix to take a rotation spot with the big league club. He went 4 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 1 HR and threw 84 pitches, only 45 for strikes. He could actually face a lineup on Tuesday against the Astros that is worse than the Round Rock Express (Texas affiliate), but I would be surprised if that outing earns him a promotion.
Don't sell yourself short, Judge.
I love this team.
Looks like Mother Nature is trying to call this fight.
Hey! I remember this team!
I'm sorry - I was probably not looking at the correct line, or spot, or...who knows!
I could blame it on the weed, but I stopped smoking many years ago.
Fortunately, I can rely on the rest of you sober and astute folks to bring the correct info forth.
Oh yeah! It just felt like one for some reason.
Agreed. I was not including Fowler or Heyward.
I'm just not a fan of 2016 Coghlan.....
Maybe Coghlan is up to see if he can get on track before someone acquires him.
Maddon basically said as much...Fowler still kind of sore, they're being proactive, etc.
La Stella at 2B...Baez at 3B, or vice versa. Zobrist in RF, Bryant in LF No one gets bumped.
Unless he gets hot, Coghlan will likely change places with Soler soon.
But if he spends at least twenty days on optional assignment this season (anything less than twenty days and he will accrue a full season of MLB Service Time), he will not have enough MLB Service Time to have a chance to be a "Super Two."
this will be his 4th time leading off for the cubs this season...WITH A .500 OB%! HAIL MADDON! THE PLAN (c)2016! HE HAS RISEN! #YOLO #SWAG! KONY 2012!
