D'back Arms Shut-Down Cubs at Sloan

Jake McCarthy clubbed a solo HR, walked twice, and singled, and SP Tyler Holton and four relievers combined to toss a shutout, as the Diamondbacks blanked the Cubs 2-0 in AZ Instructional League game action Saturday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ. 

Cubs pitchers had a pretty good day, too, striking out 14 D'backs (13 swinging) while allowing two runs on five hits and five walks.    

Jared Young tripled and singled for the Cubs in a losing cause. 

Here is the abridged box score from the game (Cubs players only):

Comments

In adition to the 22 pitchers originally on the Cubs AZIL Active List roster plus RHP Manuel Rodriguez (right biceps strain last March) and LHP Brad Wieck (wearing a brace on his left knee) who are on the Cubs MLB 60-day IL and are rehabbing at AZIL, the Cubs have added four additional pitchers to their AZIL Active List roster:  

RHP Josh Burgmann 
RHP Chris Clarke 
LHP D. J. Herz
RHP Michael McAvene 

For those of you wondering about catcher Ronnier Quintero (the Cubs #1 IFA signing in the 2019-20 ISP), he participates fully in pre-game and Camp Day work-outs and he catches bullpens, and while he has been the bullpen catcher at every AZIL game he has not yet played in a game.

As a catcher he has a lot to learn, and the Cubs would prefer that Quintero mainly concentrates on receiving and learning how to work with pitchers right now. He can learn about hitting and baserunning later.

TIM: One of the things people wonder about when they see a young shortstop for the first time is does he have the arm and range necessary to play SS or would his tools maybe be better suited for 2B, 3B or OF. So far at Instructs Kevin Made has shown all of the attributes of a SS, and he is an advanced hitter (for his age) as well. 

In the case of Rafael Morel (who is also at Instructs), he is a bat-first SS. His brother Christopher is a lean "quick-twitch" type infielder with a plus arm (he's best at 3B or he can shift to short RF vs LH hitters), but Rafael is built more like a corner infielder/outfielder (maybe CF if he can be an assertive "ball hawk" because he has above-average speed). Just as the Cubs have moved Yonathan Perlaza from INF to OF to take advantage of his bat, I suspect the same will happen eventually with Rafael Morel. He will go as far as his bat will take him. He can hit, but he is not really a SS.

    happ is back (and starting), mervis DH, tauchman gets RF.

    morel 5th in the lineup.  hoerner continues to lead off, even vs a righty.

    I don't care to see Hendricks or Smyly on the 26-man Roster the rest of the season. Both, stupid signings and option pick up by Jed.

    i know the cubs are paying the guys, but for the sake of the win/loss column this is some great news.

    woo!  people getting injured!  kick ass!

    sportsball is cruel.

    would have liked to keep cooper, but it looks like they're gonna go with wisdom if they have to pick a righty who's gonna K 1/3rd of his PA's.

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    Edwards would be my guess, or maybe they’re hoping Sanders or R Thompson can finally figure it out 

  • Cubster (view)

    So it’s Mervis, Wesn and Little for Cooper, Hendricks and Smyly. Count me in. Starting rotation for now: Taillon, Imanaga, Wicks, Assad and Brown-Wesn. Eventually Steele. 

    Lineup

    Hoerner, Happ, Bellinger, Busch, Morel, Swanson, Tauchman, Mervis, Amaya.

    Another year AZPhil, and you have more to do than ever! Heck yeah! Great stuff from Rosario so far. What are your impressions of guys like Freilyn Silverio, Adan Sanchez, Jose Escobar, and Anderson Suriel? Particularly the first two, feel like I’m forgetting one. 

  • fullykräusened (view)

    My first thought was that Hendricks was IL'd with a broken ERA, but after some quick research, you're right about MLB making at least some effort to discourage the "phantom IL."

    luke little rejoins the MLB party...

    hendricks IL...lower back...

    given recent backlash by MLB, i doubt this is a phanton IL.

    wtf...also drew smyly to IL...right hip...

    boston, houston, miami...lots of potential suitors for a backup 1st/DH who won't be pain if they need regular ABs
