Comments

RHRP Francisco Gracia has been returned to the Cubs from Mexico City (Mexican League) and has been assigned to DSL Cubs #2. Gracia had been loaned to los Diablos Rojos on May 1st. 

The Cubs have signed minor league second-contract FA LHP Jorge Ramirez (ex-TEX) and RHP Marcos Encarnacion (ex-CIN) and they have been assigned to the DSL (Ramirez to DSL Cubs #1 and Encarnacion to DSL Cubs #2). Ramirez is 21 and Encarnacion is 23. 

Encarnacion was a July 2nd signing by the Reds back in 2013 as a 17-year old and he had a couple of very good seasons in the DSL (2014-15) before having career side-tracked by injury.  

The Cubs have signed second-contract FA RHRP Willians Vasquez to a minor league contract and he has been assigned to DSL Cubs #2. 

Now 22, W. Vasquez was signed by the Atlanta Braves as an 18-year old J-2 IFA out of Venezuela in 2015, and he spent three seasons in the DSL prior to being released by the Braves this past February. 

The Cubs have signed second-contract FA RHSP Aneudis Beard to a minor league contract and he has been assigned to DSL Cubs #2. 

Now 21, the 6'1 195 Beard was signed by the Texas Rangers as an 19-year old J-2 IFA out of the Dominican Republic in 2017, and he spent two seasons in the DSL prior to being released by the Rangers last month. 

The Cubs have released DSL Cubs #2 OF Kelvin Hidalgo (2017 IFA - Dominican Republic). 

Iowa Cubs released OF Jacob Hannemann.

INF Santiago Blanco (2017 IFA - Dominican Republic) has retired. He was at EXST in Mesa in the Rehab Throwing Program April-May after undergoing major shoulder surgery in 2018 but he was clearly unable to do anything but play simple soft-toss catch. 

The Cubs have released DSL Cubs #2 RHRPs Keiber Arredondo and Kleiber Carreno (both IFA signed post-2016 DSL season out of Venezuela). 

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

    The Cubs have purchased the contract of RHSP Mike Hauschild (ex-TOR) from Lexington (Atlantic League) and he has been asigned to AAA Iowa.

    (c) hendricks gives up at least 60 homers in the regular season

    seriously, though...wisdom has "slowed down" the past 10 days or so, but he still managed a couple homers.  he's got a damn good shot at 20+ even if bote+duffy come back to steal a little time from him.

    This Mets series is going poorly, so... off-topic question. Which of these outcomes do you currently think is more likely in 2021: (a) Javy hits at least 40 homeruns in the regular season, (b) Patrick Wisdom hits at least 20 homeruns in the regular season.

    wow...and he's done for the night.  that's not good...well, for mets fans.

    "right shoulder soreness"

    meanwhile...degrom with 8 Ks through 3 perfect innings.  he's also got a RBI single.

     

  • crunch 21 hours 28 min ago (view)

    and d.smith gets HBP.

    this is high end next level strategy.  you beat degrom by injuring everyone until they have to forfeit the game.  moneyballs.

    ow...villar got nailed in the ear and the back of the head by a throw from lobaton on a stolen base.

    CHARLIE: You are absolutely right.

    Granted there are existing rules prohibiting pitchers from using foreign substances, but you don't change enforcement protocols suddenly in the middle of the season. Pitchers should be given an opportunity to make adjustments during the course of Spring Training before any new enforcement policy is implememted.

    This can and should be addressed in the upcoming CBA negotiations. Not now.

    That was definitely my position prior to this year. But I am starting to buy into the claim that almost all pitchers are using something, even if it is rosin and sunscreen in many cases.

    brews did the cubs a solid by losing before the cubs have to take on degrom.

    Guys who haven't been cheating don't need to change a thing.

    dude can barely move behind the plate these days.  i wouldn't trust him to stop a passed ball or a wild pitch even with his advanced skill.

    that said, all the cubs in-house options kinda suck.

    hey d.ross, grab a glove and get to work.

    Tyler Glasnow sprained his UCL and is pretty openly objecting to the MLB pushback on use of "sticky stuff," saying he thinks not using his "substance of choice," rosin and sunscreen, lead to his injury and will lead others to injury. I will be interested to hear a more open discourse on what pitchers use to get a grip on the ball, what will be permitted, and what adjustments pitchers will make.

    Time to sign Wilson Ramos.

    Beginning today (June 16th), post-2020 Article XX-B MLB free-agents who signed a 2021 MLB contract will no longer have an automatic "no trade" right, so Arrieta, Chafin, Marisnick, Pederson, and Romine can now be traded without restriction.
