Trevor Clifton Looking Sharp in Scottsdale

Trevor Clifton tossed four innings of one-hit shutout ball, Tyler Alamo and Ian Rice drilled RBI doubles, and Michael Wagner recorded a six-pitch save, helping the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Cubs Hi-A affiliate) edge the San Jose Giants (Hi-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants) 2-1 on Field #1, and Ho-Young Son clubbed a solo home run and Eddy Julio Martinez rifled a two-run triple into the LF corner to highlight a five-run 3rd inning, as the South Bend Cubs (Lo-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) and the Augusta Greenjackets (Giants Lo-A affiliate) played to a 6-6 tie on Field #2, in Cactus League Minor League game action Tuesday afternoon at Indian School Park in Scottsdale, AZ.

In addition to the two-run triple, Martinez lined out sharply to short, lined-out sharply to center, and walked and scored in his other three PA.  

Four players were temporarily moved up from the Eugene/Mesa (Extended Spring Training) group to augment the South Bend roster, with SS Andruw Monasterio, 3B Vimael Machin, 2B Ho-Young Son, and CF Roberto Caro in the SB starting lineup, and Alberto Mineo was moved-up to the Myrtle Beach roster from Eugene/Mesa for the day, getting the start at 1st base for the Pelicans.

John Arguello (Cubs Den) has some great pics and notes from Monday's games (Myrtle Beach & South Bend versus the Angels Hi-A and Lo-A affiliates) at Riverview:

AZ Phil, I see that Carl Edwards is now listed on the Tenn. depth chart. Has he been moved down? Thanks.

cubs giving a lot of regulars a day off... russell, schwarb(LF), soler(RF) the only guys of importance in the lineup. kawasaki playing 2nd today...he may make the team as the 25th man.

I just noticed issues with the site today. If anyone ever has issues or sees problems, please use the contact form and email me. Sometimes I'm not here for days and even then, I'm usually accessing an internal page most of the time.

alcohol and prison aficionado matt "i'm matt fucking bush" bush is about to come into the game for the rangers. he's scheduled to pitch 2 innings.

I realize it's spring training but the lack of offense from Cubs starters besides Rizzo and Montero is concerning. Almost all the offense so far has come from guys we've sent down or will send down. We really can't afford to start the season in a hole. Maybe the starters just don't care right now but I'm pretty sure hitting isn't something you can just switch on. Also maybe Soler is unhappy but he's been making a lot of mistakes on offense and defense both.

    morel's knee and foot seems to be feeling a bit better.

    iowa gave away the game in the late innings.  davis got a single and double to add to the pile, though.

    may  9th - .135/.306/.216
     

    may 18th - .279/.439/.689

    in 8 games over 9 days he's gone from washup to prospect resurgence.  it would be nice to get that heat from 2021 back.

    unreal.  be crazy to see where this goes in a month or 2....unless it gets too crazy to ignore at the mlb level.

    And another solo shot in the third. He’s not hitting cheapies either. Definitely capturing my attention at this point.

    He is on a serious heater right now

    woo!!!!

    walkoff win!  morel has been involved in at least 4 walk-off wins this year by my count.

    his bWAR is tied for next to last on the team (-0.1)...just saying.

    ha.  the mccutchen AB where he almost homered in the 6th (foul) got me thinking about the mccutchen/furries thing.

    it's a coincidence, but mccutchen does VERY well at the plate when pittsburgh's annual furry convention (Anthrocon) is in town and there's a home game.  all 4 days of the convention will be home games for PIT.

    be on the lookout for mccutchen's twitter account to simply post "Furries" during the week of the convention.

    he's aware of the coincidence and plays into it.

    baseball is weird.  social media is weird.  furries are also weird, but whatever...ya'll do ya'll.

    i love that wrigley is packed, but you can tell a lot of these fans are new(ish) to in-person baseball.

    pop outs that don't even reach the warning track are getting huge fan pops as possible homers.

    that said, it's good there's so much fresh eyes on the field product.  the game needs a constant influx of newer fans.

    i noticed a lot of 20-somethings really getting into baseball during the covid era.  they also really got into baseball cards, but that's another side show in itself.  the baseball card boom died down a bit, but the interest in baseball overall seems to have stuck around.

    "The New York Post’s Joel Sherman reports the Mets offered first baseman Pete Alonso a seven-year, $158 million contract extension last summer."

    22.5m a year.  on one hand, no way his agent would sign that.  on the other hand, the mets obviously see some warning signs long-term...most likey his lack of body conditioning.  he's got a very pre-roids era slugger build.
