Nice to see Moreno and Alcantara playing.

Very much agreed. I have been very interested in seeing Moreno throw some in-game innings

Fabrizio might be a prospect.

HAGSAG: Miguel Fabrizio has a line-drive stroke and makes good contact, but he's a below-average defensive catcher, which is why he is now mainly a 1B-DH. His bat will have to carry him. 

It was Dakota Chalmers and not Koen Moreno who was the SP for Cubs Blue in yesterday's intrasquad game. A little bit of a Cubs AZIL numerical roster wardrobe malfunction that has been corrected. Haven't seen one of those for several years, hopefully won't happen again anytime soon. Sorry for the confusion. 

Damn.... maybe Koen Moreno is a figment of all our our imaginations.

Thanks for the update Phil. Good to see 0 next to BB with Chalmers
