Jordan Wicks

Cubs @ Rangers: Game Thread (Game 3)

Jordan Wicks looks to pick up the 0-2 Cubs following an 11-2 loss. The lefty made six strong starts for the big league squad in 2023 and one disappointing outing to end the season. He generally met expectations, commanding the strike zone and mixing a respectable fastball with a great changeup. Having lost Justin Steele to a hamstring strain and then seeing Kyle Hendricks leave game two in the 4th inning, the Cubs would surely use a carrying performance from a starting pitcher.

Cubs @ Brewers: Game 161

Ian Happ brought the Cubs back with a solo shot before Chicago fell to the Brewers in an extra innings defeat. They had a strong chance to put up multiple runs in the tenth but couldn't collect a single hit to drive home Swanson and Morel from second and third. The Cubs go into their final two games 1.5 behind the Marlins and tied with the Reds. With disadvantage in both potential tiebreakers, the Cubs must win both remaining games and need two losses from the Marlins and one from the Reds--any other outcomes render the final game moot.

    michael busch is not impressed.  3rd straight game with a homer.

    holy f...that slider/sweeper ex-cub tyson miller has.

    the horizontal movement is insane.

  • crunch (view)

    morel with 2 high-quality snags at 3rd base in the 6th going to his right, a weakness of his (though not as weak as his throw accuracy).  both plays saving runs.

  • crunch (view)

    imanaga walks back to back batters to the first hitters up in the 6th.  he had 15 innings without a walk coming into the inning.

    he gave up his first run earlier in the game, but still hasn't given up an earned run.

    mervis with another homer tonight...

    porter hodge made his AAA debut and got the win throwing a scoreless inning in relief...while walking 3 and K'ing 1.

  • crunch (view)

    morel in the lineup saturday and playing 3rd.  hand is obviously bothering him, but he's playing.

    tauchman gets the DH, because he's left handed or whatever...

    mlb.tv free game of the day, btw...

    TIM: Yes. I would think so. It's not like anybody is blocking him there. 

    So if PCA, Caissie, K. Alcantara, Canario, and C. Franklin are the Cubs top five outfield prospects (and all five are definitely in the Cubs Top 30), then Alfonsin Rosario is # 6 (ahead of B. Davis, Roederer, Pagan, and Pinango) and is in my Cubs Top 30 (if not in the Cubs Top 30 at BA, milb.com, et al).

    Rosario as next to Myrtle Beach as a hitter?

     

    Thanks, always.

    I guess my point is that based on past performance, majors, minors and spring training would more likely than not cement the 4A reputation with a call up, particularly as a part time occasional player.

    If he tears up triple A other teams may have different thoughts even without the MLB experience. He lacks prospect pedigree primarily because of the system he’s in. Probably not the centerpiece of a trade but certainly a decent component.

  • Charlie (view)

    Agreed. Mervis lacks prospect pedigree, and he will likely carry the trade value of a suspected quad-A guy until he shows success at the MLB level.

    I also think the Cubs will show interest in a regular DH if it turns out they already have a guy who can fill that role well.
