Rosario Drops 5th & 6th Bombs at Sloan Park

Alfonsin Rosario singled in the 1st, belted a two-run HR onto the LF berm in the 4th, and blasted a solo HR onto the LF berm in the 6th, Adan Sanchez smacked a two-run HR onto the LF berm in the 2nd, Bradlee Beesley singled, doubled, stole two bases, and scored two runs, Anderson Suriel smoked a double and scored, stroked an RBI single, and stole a base, and Miguel Pabon drilled an RBI single and scored a run, leading the Cubs to an 8-5 victory over the Diamondbacks in a Cactus League Extended Spring Training game played Monday afternoon at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ. 

Channy Ortiz laced a two run double and a triple and scored a run for the D'backs.  

The game was pre-planned as a 5-1/2 inning contest with the Diamondbacks playing as the home team (the Cubs had only two pitchers available to throw in the game), but the game was extended an extra half inning so that all of the D'backs pitchers who were scheduled to throw in the game could get their work. 

Through his first seven Cactus League Extended Spring Training games (24 PA), Alfonsin Rosario is hitting 417/467/1.261 (1.728 OPS), with six HR, 10 RBI, and a double, three stolen bases (no CS), and a 33% K-rate and a 4% walk-rate, with (obviously) plus-plus HR power, a plus arm, above-average range in CF, and above-average speed on the bases. 

Not since Javier Baez's unbelievable performance at Extended Spring Training in 2012 has a Cub prospect lit up the Cactus League like Rosario has over the past few days. 

JAVIER BAEZ - 2012 Extended Spring Training: 330/351/725 (26 GAMES - 94 PA) – 6 2B, 3 3B, 8 HR, 28 RBI, 19 R, 1 BB, 23 K, 2 HBP, 1 GIDP, 11 SB (1 CS)

The Savannah Bananas will be playing the Party Animals at Sloan Park in Mesa this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The games are sold out (15,000+ each night), and berm tickets are going for well over $100. 

No question right now Alfonsin Rosario is one of the Cubs Top 20 prospects (probably Top 15). Rosario is to the Cubs what Zyhir Hope is to the Dodgers.

“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."

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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    imanaga walking the leadoff man on 5 pitches.  really rare for a dude that hates to walk anyone in any situation.
