videographer: Alexander Guerra is 22 years old and is repeating AZL.
He played in Serie Nacional (the Cuban major league) prior to signing with the Cubs in 2017 and it was presumed (at the time he signed) that he would almost certainly be at South Bend in 2018, but he reported to Mesa out of shape (weighing 250+) and was left behind at Extended Spring Training and then was assigned to the AZL.
Exact same thing happened this year.

Sounds like Cedeno is coming up? Didn’t sound like he impressed in his rehab at all though.
Maybe a stretch, but I wonder if the Cubs might bring Drew Smyly back as an LHRP (he had some nice K numbers for the Brewers in AAA) and give Cedeno his release.

The Cubs have optioned LHRP Randy Rosario to AAA Iowa.

Finally, a Yu win at Wrigley as a Cub and a series win against the Reds. Could definitely get used to that!

JHey!!! Yu’s gotta be the happiest dude in the dugout

Little surprised Maddon pulled Yu after six innings and only 83 pitches - hopefully just trying to keep him fresh (and no injury concern)

What can you tell us about Alexander Guerra and his performance as of late? 2 - 3HR games in two weeks, 1.200 Slg %. Does he have any kind of value as a prospect?

post all-star break darvish is some good stuff so far, too.

I’m trying really hard to reverse jinx it but floundering in a bad way. Seems likely he’ll hit 6 + in a week when the dam finally breaks
