n.hoerner goes 2/2 with a walk and a HR...neat.  he also played SS.

Besides the line-drive HR to left-center, Hoerner flew around the bases today, going from 1st to 3rd in the 5th and tagging up at 2nd base and advancing to 3rd on a fly ball to LF in the 7th. Hoerner is a very fast runner, folks. 

Is he a base stealing threat in the future?

CHARLIE: Yes. 

Is it my meds, or could Hoerner be a home-grown leadoff option?

TIM: You must be taking the same meds I'm taking. 

His triple the other day was magnificent. https://twitter.com/nbcscubs/status/1104096390706274305?s=21

dodgers DFA'd josh fields on thursday and released him today.

it seems odd he had little value to the dodgers or anyone else in trade.

2 years of a sub-1.00 WHIP and ERA in the 2.00's doesn't go as far as it used to.

    Hoping that Rizzo's back won't be a problem.

    arizona summer league from the distant east coast point of view is an interesting baseball sideshow for the most part, but that AZL 1 vs 2 game sounds awesome.  the players and coaches have to be stoked for that one.

    18-year old SS Luis Verdugo last ten games for AZL Cubs #2 (45 PA): 429/467/881 with four doubles, five HR, and 18 RBI, including three three-hit games and one four-hit game among the ten games.

    As I mentioned at the start of the AZL season in June, Verdugo is the Cubs top prospect in the AZL (see my comment in this thread from June 15th).

    Both AZL Cubs #2 and AZL Athletics Gold win (big) in their games Saturday night and Dodgers Mota clinches one of the two remaining playoff slots with a win while Royals and Padres #1 lose.

    So it's AZL Cubs #1 vs AZL Cubs #2 at Sloan Park Sunday afternoon (with game-time temperatures 110+), with Benjamin Rodriguez scheduled to pitch for Cubs #1 and Carlos Ocampo scheduled to start for Cubs #2. (Richard Gallardo and Benjamin Rodriguez are the Cubs top two pitching prospects in the AZL, so Cubs #2 will have their hands full).

    it's kinda crazy to think there's a chance pedro strop won't make the post season roster (yeah, the cubs have to get there first) unless he shows something different the next 5 weeks.  it's been hard to watch.

    yeah, and evidently they can't pitch either.

    now we need a few stupid baserunning mistakes to go with this new look.

     

  • crunch 16 hours 15 min ago (view)

    cubs can't field or hit anymore.

    this is not a good late-season look.

    What happened to Danny Hultzen this time??

    All whites are distinctive.  And ugly.

    There should be a number of good players and pitchers available off Outright Assignment Waivers over the next few days as non-contending clubs look to jettison payroll even if they can't get players back. The only problem is that the claiming club assumes 100% of the player's remaining pro-rated salary (albeit only one month's worth, unless the player is signed beyond 2019 and/or has a post-season buy-out).

    BTW, Danny Zardon (signed by the Cubs out of Independent ball during Minor League Camp in March and converted from 3B to catcher at EXST) is now being converted to RHP in the AZL.

    The AZL regular season concludes on Monday and the playoffs start on Tuesday and although AZL Cubs #1 has been eliminated, AZL Cubs #2 is right in the middle of the race to get one of the last two playoff slots.

    Today is the last day of the DSL regular season. Neither DSL Cubs #1 nor DSL Cubs #2 qualified for the DSL playoffs.

    RHP Kelvin Abreu (April 2019 IFA - Venezuela) had his contract voided and he has been released. He spent his entire pro career (four months) on the Restricted List.
