Callie not quite as high on Cubs pick-ups
There are 33 rookie position players accruing stats this year in the majors.
And as others pointed out, it's about service time with Baez.
Knew there had to be a reason.....thanks, Phil!
I don't get the point of Wada.
Vizcaino with 2 innings of shutout pitching. Not quite gorgeous with 2 BB and 1 H but better than most of his recent appearances in Iowa.
Batting .361 with 5 Multi hit games out of 10 at Iowa. Facing mostly RHP of course. Stolen base tonight.
Straily finishes with 6 shutout innings, 4 hits, 5 K, 1 BB . . .
