Russell & Tseng in Action but Morel & Soto Go Deep at Riverview

Christopher Morel and Jonathan Soto stroked two-run home runs in Cubs Minor League Camp intrasquad game action Tuesday morning on Field #6 at the Riverview Baseball Complex on John Arguello Way in Mesa, AZ.  

Addison Russell (who is serving a 40-game suspension for violation of the MLB-MLBPA joint DV policy) played SS for three innings and went 2-3 with two singles and a strikeout (swinging). 

Jen-Ho Tseng started the game for SQUAD "B" but was removed from the game in the 3rd inning. Colin Rea (who had started the game and pitched the first two innings for "SQUAD "A") relieved Tseng and pitched the 3rd inning for SQUAD "B." Tseng had been left behind in Mesa when his Iowa teammates left town so that he could stay in his rotation slot and get his scheduled work (he was not projected to make his first start for Iowa until next Sunday or Monday), but based upon his performance today (three runs on five hits  -- three singles and two doubles, three walks, a HBP, and a WP, and only 50% strikes, in just two innings of work), that might now be in doubt.    

The game was called in the middle of the 6th inning after all of the pitchers who were scheduled to throw in the game got their work.  

Here is the box score from the game:

Regardng the trade today that sent OF Socrates Brito (who was claimed off waivers last week) from San Diego to Toronto....

RESTRICTION ON MAKING WAIVER CLAIMS:
A club is not permitted to make a waiver claim and then trade the player to another club if the purpose or effect of the claim was to prevent a third club from being awarded the waiver claim. (A waiver claim that is judged by the MLB Commissioner to have been made for this purpose will be revoked).

So (for example), if a club with a waiver claim priority anywhere between SD and TOR (that would be CIN, TEX, and SF) claimed Brito last week when he was on waivers but didn't get him because the Padres claimed him, that third club can file a grievance and will almost certainly win. 

This is different from the MLB Rule 5 Draft, where a club can select a player and then trade the selected player to another club with a higher (worse) Rule 5 Draft priority, so that clubs in between the two clubs making the trade can't select the player. Waiver claims aren't like that.

    welp...sigh.

    Brewers lose again to Fish, 1-0.  Maybe that will motivate some Cub bats.

    no-hitter and lead gone, but steele looked like his old self in the 4th after a sketchy 3rd including a HR (probably would have been a homer even considering the high wind conditions helping).

    oof.  no surgery for alzolay, but it was framed as no surgery "yet" on his elbow.

    2 weeks off , then start throwing program, then evaluate.

    we won't see him for 1+ month, minimum...most likely longer...hopefully not 12-16 months longer.

    10 pitch 1st.  i got complete game no-hitter on this game...book it.

    The Cubs have also won eight of nine starts by Shota Imanaga, including the first seven.
