Outstanding effort Phil. Thanks for the updates.

Anybody know the record for errors at Single-A? Javy Baez with 2 more yesterday - now with 19 for the season.....

Not sure if it is a record, but in 1993 at Greenboro Derek Jeter had 56 errors.

I remember a conversation at TCR years ago with reference to Starlin's propensity for errors, and it was brought up that Jeter once committed 59 in A ball. It was a mini-point of discussion because different sources were reporting the number as either 59 or 159, but it was determined to be 59. Edit: I guess it was 56, funny we both thought of the same thing.

IMO: Errors in the minors are just part of development. To some extent, a player already is what he is. The key is to show general improvement (especially in gloving and throwing) across the player's age 18-24 seasons, at which point most guys are probably "finished products" defensively and there is also evidence of the beginning of range decline.

Per the Baseball Cube (http://www.thebaseballcube.com/players/profile.asp...), Derek played the part of two seasons in A ball. He had 56 erros in 128 games in 1993, and 9 errors in 11 games in 1992.

as an aside...the worst SS i've ever seen in my life is/was bj upton.

words cannot describe how awful he was...it blows my mind he actually made it to AAA playing the position...and that he wasn't moved earlier in his minor league or AAA career. even when he wasn't making plays that would count as errors he was playing really bad SS.

they gave him an enormous amount of leeway trying to get him to stick at the position.

http://espn.go.com/blog/chicago/cubs/post/_/id/170...

It seems unlikely to me that Watkins will be able to keep up his walk totals in the majors, which kind of makes him a non-prospect.

That may be true. But is he any less of a prospect than Darwin Barney was?
Barney: .288/.337/.378 in the minors, 35/45 steals 1724 PA's
Watkins:.281/.372/.389, 88/124 steals, 2205 PA's

That is kind of damming with faint praise. :)

True, but if he's at least decent defensively, and could put up a .270/.350/.390
he'd be worth at least a utility spot.
Come on Soler, Almora and Baez!!!

grant balfour + live TV...what the hell was the MLB Network thinking?

he only let 1 swear fly (not bleeped)...that's about 3-4 times less than i expected.

RIP St Rita alum and great musician

True.

just when you think the Cubs are starting to look like a major league team, they go and lose 2 of 3 at home to the Mets.

Scott Feldman though looking good as trade bait.

I see Feldman and DeJesus as the most tradeable assets, with Shierholtz somewhere behind them, and the asking price for Garza being more than teams want to give up by a pretty good margin. Garza would still be likely to bring back the best haul, though. I mean, even in a good year, what are you really willing to give up for a Feldman or DeJesus?

In addition to those you mention, I'm sure the Cubs will aggressively market Soriano and Marmol including salary relief. Clearly they will not command the prospects of those you mentioned, although Soriano might if he heats up again. Marmol can hopefully be disposed of for insert fringe prospect here.

As for Shierholtz and Feldman, attempts to extend would not surprise me. Shierholtz and Hairston are a pretty good platoon on paper, and Hairston has been the one to fail on the execution aspect of that plan, not Shierholtz. The closest thing to an OF prospect at either AA or AAA at this point has to be Jae-Hoon Ha, who is not a guy that you clear the depth chart for.

Great update Phil. It is appreciated. Great to see the hitting over the last ten games. Looks like some of these guys are coming around.

  • He's had so few save opportunities that it might be difficult for him to get the All Star nod but Rondon has an absolutely ridiculous 1.05 ERA and 1.06 FIP after this game so far (and I think his worst outing was in the 10th inning non save situation) so I do absolutely think he is worth considering.

  • wood(4)/grimm/strop/rondon combine for 7ip 0h 0bb 8K

    nasty.

  • 3ip 0h 0bb 3k for t.wood...nice.

    28 pitches.

    wonder if they'll let him go another.

    4ip 0h 0bb 4k...and probably done f'real this time. 43 pitches and in line for the win.

  • Depends how long he'd be gone but if not too long I would assume they'll use Wood or Cahill and limit them to 4 or 5 innings and call up a reliever to use in the bullpen.

  • hopefully it's a carlos-zambrano-special and he just needs to drink more water and less coffee+redbull before starts.

  • Assuming Hammel needs some DL time for the hammy, who do the Cubs call up: Glasnow or Taillon? Too many starting pitching prospects at Iowa to choose from.

  • "cramping in right hamstring" according to the booth.

    btw, it was his left hamstring that was injured last year.

  • hammel is injured and done..."leg cramp" or some other leg issue...was down behind the mound coming back from commercial and seemed to have injured himself warming up on the mound between innings.

  • heyward with a bit of starlin castro disease...you're great D dude, but you can't range 200ft in all directions even if you're playing CF.

    that said, he almost had it...though zobrist or baez should have had it if heyward wasn't coming on at 100mph.

    hammel is quite wild today even if he got the first 2 outs on Ks that were result of swinging through stuff not in the zone.

  • she did fine, fwiw.

    bombs were bursting in the air...ramparts were watched...all that stuff.

    zoobrest kissed her afterwards and got about 20lbs of the 100lbs of makeup she was wearing on him.
