Thanks for the rosters! Do you know why Albertos didn't make the Eugene roster in the end?

In reply to by Raisin101

RAISIN: As is fairly obvious, Jose Albertos had significant command issues at Extended Spring Training (a very high 7.6 BB/9 and only 52% strikes in Cactus League EXST games), and his last outing (the intrasquad game on Thursday) wasn't much better than his first one (although he did record four strikeouts in the intrasquad game). So I would think that's probably why he was left behind, although I have to admit I was surprised that he wasn't assigned to Eugene. 

Albertos still has plus-stuff, so hopefully he'll find his groove in the AZL and move up to Eugene ASAP. But there are yellow flags here. He's not necessarily a slam-dunk mega-prospect at this point, although he has shown flashes of his potential at times.  

Actually, Javier Assad was the best Cubs pitcher at EXST, essentially the pitcher I expected Albertos to be. Assad has the command Albertos lacks, and Assad has added a slider to his repertoire (he already had a slow CV and a CH) and a couple of MPH to his FB (now tops out at 95) and he's in better physical condition now than he was last year (when he had some baby-fat). He may not quite have the ceiling Albertos has, but Assad is developing nicely. 

Note to those who follow Cubs minor leagues: Fernando Kelli is NOT a switch-hitter. He bats RH-only. He was not a switch-hitter at AZ Instructs post-2016, either. The only switch-hitters at 2017 EXST were Zach Davis (who just started switch-hitting in 2017), Jose Gutierrez, Fidel Mejia, Yonathan Perlaza, Jemile Weeks (rehab), and Roberto Caro (short stay). That's it. There aren't any others. Edgar Rondon tried switch-hitting last season (2016) at EXST, but he went back to hitting LH-only once the AZL season started.

    i would have pause if the cubs had a pitching squeeze.   as it is, they have more guys than they have roster.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Maybe Brewer

    He'd be able to leave the Cubs. He's out of options. That would open up a 40man spot.

    I don't think Jed would do that.

  • crunch (view)

    brewer has done nothing to keep him on the big league roster...imagine that's 1 guy gone.

    yeah, it's only 2 appearances, but they were both unimpressive.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Yeah it is.....sorry......closers don't throw 89mph

    It would be unique for sure.

    But CP can't be HR susceptible

    That's what Alzolay has right now and that's what Kyle has no matter the situation.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Supposedly Happ said on a radio show he's good to go

    I hadn't read that anywhere from the usual accounts, so this could be off.

    If true, Canario goes down.

  • TarzanJoeWallis (view)

    Hmmm. Maybe my idea of transitioning Hendricks into a closer role isn’t so crazy.

  • Childersb3 (view)

    Mervis and Wesneski getting promoted aaccording to Tommy Birch from Des Moines Register.

    So Happ to the IL

    Maybe Hendricks to IL ????

    Mervis/Cooper are DH platoon

    Wisdom, Canario, Tauchman share LF/RF

    I wonder if Busch has ever played LF?

    I don't believe he has

    “I respect his track record of what he’s accomplished,” Counsell said on Sunday morning. “And you go through these. He’s gone through -- maybe not this particular stretch -- but stretches where you’re not pitching the way you want to and struggling. And you figure it out.” -- Counsell on Hendricks

    fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...

    i respect his track record of no longer being in the rotation.  in 2016 he threw 2 innings out of the pen, his only work out of the pen.  the cubs won the world series that year.  let's repeat that magic.  the formula is obvious.  stats don't lie.  etc etc whatever...

    small sample size and all, but how about this craziness...

    "Entering Sunday, Hendricks had allowed an .843 OPS against hitters in their initial plate appearance, followed by a 1.056 OPS in a second meeting and a 2.449 OPS when seeing batters for a third time."

    Phil: Great to see what Rosario is doing!

    Do you think having Rosario may have influenced/impacted the front office's decision on including Hope in the trade for Busch at all?

  • crunch (view)

    it's so crazy we got a new "barnstorming" harlem globetrotters-type baseball product that was introduced less than 5 years ago and is wildly popular all over the nation.

    a notion left long in the past, unearthed, polished for modern audiences and popular as ever.
