Comments

thanks for another season of updates and numbers.

+1

so when does the next AZ league season start?

CUBSTER: Boise begins play next Friday (6/14) and the AZL Cubs first game is Thursday 6/20.

Draft picks who played college ball who sign right away might have a chance to break camp with Boise on Tuesday, but most will spend a week to ten days in Mesa where they will be evaluated before being assigned to an affiliate.

Most if not all of the players initially assigned to Boise (probably about 25-28 players) will be selected from the Cubs EXST roster, and the players who are not chosen to go to Boise will remain in Mesa playing "sim" games  and (if enough players are available) intrasquad games ad nauseum until the AZL season starts in a couple of weeks.

PHIL: Many thanks as well. Hope your A/C is working well for the summer ahead. Would like to ask you to "pick three": - What three hitters do you project to move through the system (up hopefully)? - What three pitchers (if there are three...) did you see in ExtST that could as well?

E-MAN: Not counting players who were at Extended Spring Training on rehab assignments (like Almora, Lake, Vitters, and Clevenger) and also not counting players who were promoted during the course of EXST (like Maples and Golden), I would say the position players most likely to move through the pipeline are Penalver, Dunston, Baez, and Hodges, and the pitchers most likely to move are Conway (but only if he returns 100%), Underwood, Leal, Pugliese, and Torrez.    

Phil, thanks for your hard work and especially your knowledge of the Cobs organization.

Thanks, Phil!!!

    I see that Dillon Maples hasn't pitched yet. Is he injured or spending time in the lab?

    The Cubs have purchased the contract of 26-year old RHRP Jonathan de Marte from Quebec (Frontier League) and he has been assigned to AZL Cubs Blue.

    He is the closer for Team Israel and has no previous experience in affiliated ball.

    He was a NDFA out of the U. of Richmond in 2017 and has been playing independent ball for the past three seasons in the Atlantic League and Can-Am League as well as winter ball in Australia this past winter.

    W-RAT: Mark Zagunis was sent outright to the minors last September, and because he did not have the right to elect free-agency after being outrighted he remains under club control through the 2020 season, and so he is signed to a minor league contract that expires at 5 PM (Eastern) on the 5th day after the conclusion of the 2020 World Series.

    Thank you AZ Phil! Does that mean he's been signed to a minor league contract, then? Because he's out of options.

    I love these scouting reports. Thanks Phil!

    You wouldn't happen to have this info for the road games Sun and Mon?

    W-RAT: Mark Zagunis is assigned to AAA Iowa but he did not get an NRI to MLB Spring Training. He is eligible to be a minor league 6YFA post-2020 World Series if he is not added back to an MLB reserve list (40-man roster) in the meantime.

    Most of the pitchers who threw today pitched Saturday night, so not a lot of new pitch/velo info. 

    Jon Lester:  
    FB: 86-89
    SL: 85 
    CH: 84
    CV: 70-74 
    NOTES: First Cactus League game outing of 2020 for Lester... looked uncomfortable on the mound and even when he was warming up in the bullpen before the game... stuff and command were not sharp... hopefully Lester has at least one good year left in him...

    Whatever happened to Mark Zagunis? I thought we still held his rights, but he was just out of options? Haven't heard anything about him in awhile & I think he would make a good platoon partner with Schwarber.

    3h 43m game today.

    at least i've seen a lot of "i need to hop on baseball reference" cubs minor leaguers and new hires in the past 2 days.

    rex brothers looked good again.

    yesterday's game was 3h 45m.

    lester seems to be leaving off where he was for the last couple months of the season in 2019.

    no one should take anything from a february spring training start...NONETHELESS...this outing looked a lot like the ones he spent in the last couple months of the season with batters sitting around waiting to swing at lester fastballs and laying off everything else.

    he paced for 20+HR last year and might have done it if he wasn't on unpaid leave for a while.  i'd handicap him as a 15-20HR guy at worst rather than saying 20HR solid.  it's probably a safer range.

    his D isn't up there with the all-time greats of the game, but it's well above average for a young guy (turned 26 last month) who can also provide some pop.  i think more than a few teams could slot him in as a middle IF starter without having much internal competition.

    He hit 20+ HR only once and that was four years ago. He has a career OBP of 312, a career SLG of 392, and is his SS defense really that special anymore?

    kinda crazy a.russell is still a free agent.

    he's not the first and probably not the last domestic abuser to "serve his time" and find contracts to sign.  there's a 20HR guy who plays great D at SS sitting out there while spring training is going down without him.

    i wonder how much he's demanding (if that's an issue at all) vs teams that want no part of him...
