Rumor Mill Churning; Sappelt Apparently Sent Down, Ryan Sweeney Called Up
Based on twitter, it sounds like Dave Sappelt is going to Iowa… per his tweet:
@SappySappelt6: See ya later Chicago going to the trenches. There was a corresponding tweet in regards to Ryan Sweeney as well, @TommyBirch It’s official: C.R., native and #IowaCubs OF Ryan Sweeney is headed to Chicago. #Cubs #PCL. Again, nothing is official from the Cubs, and I’m just basing all of this off twitter, but it seems like a pretty good bet that Sappelt is going down and Sweeney is coming up. Ryan Sweeney deserves the promotion for sure, but this does throw a wrench into what Dale Sveum likes to do against lefties as Sweeney is another left-handed outfielder and the Cubs have plenty of them. Maybe something else is up and another move is coming, but we will have to wait for confirmation that this first move is official, stay tuned. Also, Sappelt who is very active on twitter, and borderline inappropriate on there as well has deleted is account, for now, for what it’s worth.
