8/5: Around the Minor League System

Here is the minor league recap for August 5, 2012.

FULL BOX SCORE

In an up and down game the AZL Cubs wound up on the losing end dropping Sunday’s game 8-6.  In his first start Duane Underwood struggled big time giving up four runs, three earned in just .1 innings and just like that the Cubs were down 4-0.  Over the next three innings the Cubs offense would come to life scoring six runs.  Ben Carhart was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI.  Jacob Rogers and David Bote had a hit and each drove two runs as well.  Top prospect Albert Almora was 1-for-5 and Carlos Penalver drove a run home.  Leading 6-4 the Cubs turned it over the bullpen and after Brian Smith calmed things down, Ethan Elias really struggled giving up four runs over three innings.  Steve Perakslis and Chad Martin combined to pitch the last three innings holding the Giants scorelss.  After being down early and then taking the lead it is definitely tough to not come out on top of this one.

FULL BOX SCORE

Just when it looked like Boise was going to cruise to an easy win a five run seventh happened to tie the game at nine.  Luckily for Boise Daniel Vogelbach wasn’t going to let this one slip away as he connected for a game winning home run in the top of the 11th.  Lance Rymel had qutie the night on Sunday going 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs.  Trey Martin and Marco Hernandez each had three hits with Martin driving in two runs.  Izaac Garsez had his best game yet, going 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored.  Wilson Contreras had two hits and scored three runs and Stephen Bruno added a hit and two RBIs.  Ian Dickson started and took a no decision as he gave up three runs on three hits in five innings.  Hunter Ackerman and Rafael Diplan did not have there best days combining to giving up six runs, five earned in just two innings.  Su-Min Jung recorded his first win of the season and Eduardo Orozco closed it out earning his second save.  Wow, was it a crazy game on Sunday, luckily for us the Hawks took the W.

FULL BOX SCORE

Clinton scored two in the eighth to defeat Peoria 3-2.  Michael Jensen started and pitched well allowing one run on five hits, while striking out four in five innings pitched.  Sheldon McDonald pick up right were he left off striking out three in two scoreless innings.  Austin Reed, however was not very good on Sunday giving up two runs in two innings and taking the loss.  Not much happening on the offensive side as the Chiefs only had five hits.  With the promotion of Javier Baez, Timothy Saunders was sent to Peoria and he ended the game 1-for-4 with a double.  Yanel Cabezas had a double as well as an RBI.  Wes Darvill, Sergio Burruel, and Oliver Zapata all had one hit a piece in the loss.

 FULL BOX SCORE

Daytona dropped another one Dunedin on Sunday losing 4-2.  Christian Villanueva was the only Cubs player with a multi-hit game as he went 2-for-4 in the loss.  Rubi Silva had a hit and drove in John Andreoli who also had a run scored.  Rebel Ridling, Rafael Lopez, and Micah Gibbs all had one hit, with Ridling scoring a run.  PJ Francescon started and gave up two runs in two innings, striking out four.  Frank Del Valle also gave up two runs, but did strike out five in his four innings of relief.  Ryan Searl thew the last two innings not allowing a run and striking one out.  Javier Baez struggled again in his second game with Daytona going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.  It is not the way wanted to start and it is not the way Daytona wanted things to go this weekend.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

After being up early, Tennessee tied it in the seventh, only to lose it in the bottom of the ninth 5-4.  Jutin Bour had a nice game going 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI, bringing his season total to 92.  Nelson Perez added two hits including his fifth home run of the season and Matt Cerda also had two hits on the evening.  Logan Watkins and Nate Samson each had a hit and Watkins scored a run and stole his 21st base of the season.  Eric Jokisch started, but did not factor in the decision pitching five innings and giving up three runs, while striking out six.  Brian Schlitter took the loss giving up the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

Iowa gave up one in each the eighth and the ninth to lose to Reno 2-1.  The bright spot on Sunday was Casey Coleman.  He pitched outstanding going six innings allowing no runs on two hits and striking out eight.  Jay Jackson pitched a scoreless seventh striking out one batter.  Marcus Hatley and Esmailin Caridad each gave up a run and Caridad took the loss.  Well it happened to Iowa again on Sunday, this time losing Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters to the big club.  Diory Hernandez was 1-for-3 with the Cubs only RBI.  Greg Rohan stayed hot going 1-for-4 in the loss.  There isn’t much exciting happening in Iowa right now and with the departures of Jackson, Vitters, Welington Castillo, and Adrian Cardenas thing probably will continue to be a struggle.

7/19: Around the Cubs Minor League System

All teams back in action on Thursday July 19.

FULL BOX SCORE

Jorge Soler made his much anticipated debut on Thursday night, but the AZL Cubs fell to the AZL Mariners 4-3 in 12 innings.  It was not quite the debut we were looking for from Soler as he went 0-3, grounding out twice and lining into a double play.  The Cubs got RBIs from David Bote, Daniel Lockhart, and Justin Marra.  Marra also had two hits on the evening.  Paul Blackburn got the start on Thursday and pitched three innings allowing one runs on three hits.  Carlos Martinez-Pumarino struck out five in four innings out of the pen and Daniel Adrian struck out four in three scoreless innings.  Chad Martin took the loss giving up the winning run in the 12th inning.  Not the type of game we become accustomed to from the Cubs in Arizona.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

The pitching for Boise did their job on Thursday, but the Hawks still lost to Eugene 2-1.  Ian Dickson got the start and took the tough loss.  He gave up two runs, one earned in five innings.  He also struck out five, his record now stands at 1-3.  Hunter Ackerman was outstanding in relief striking out four and allowing only one hit in three innings pitched.  All of the Hawks offense came off the bat of Stephen Bruno who had the only two hits for Boise.  He also drove in Gioskar Amaya who reached on a walk.  This is a tough one to swallow as the pitching did so well, unfortunately the hitting did not.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

Peoria dropped another to West Michigan losing 4-2.  Yao-Lin Wang started and took the loss allowing three runs in the second inning, one earned in just 1.2 innings pitched.  Josheph Zeller pitched well in relief allowing one unearned run on seven hits in 5.1 innings.  He struck out three and lowered his ERA to 1.69.  Javier Baez did it again going 2-for-4 hitting his ninth home run of the season and stealing his 17th base.  Chadd Krist only was able to muster up one hit tonight as his average dropped to .462.  Dustin Geiger added a hit and scored the only other Chiefs run of the day.  Peoria will look to get back on track tomorrow.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

It is tough to win when you allow four runs in one inning and then a single run four innings in a row.  Daytona didn’t disprove this losing 8-3 to Jupiter.  Austin Kirk took the loss allowing five runs in five innings pitched.  His ERA stands at an impressive 2.88.  Hunter Cervenka, Scott Weismann, and AJ Morris all gave up a run in their inning of work out of the bullpen.  The good news came from one of the Cubs top prospects Matt Szczur.  He was 3-for-4 with a triple, run scored, RBI and his 33rd stolen base of the year.  Ronald Torreyes was 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored.  Elliot Soto added two hits driving in one run and Rubi Silva also had an RBI.  Not a good loss all the way around for the Cubs.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

After giving up three in the first Tennessee tried to mount a comeback, but it ultimately came up short losing 4-3 to Chattanooga.  Eric Jokisch took the loss allowing three runs on six hits in five innings.  Kevin Rhoderick hopefully got back on track Thursday striking out all four of the outs he recorded.  Marcus Hatley pitched a scoreless inning giving up three hits, but striking out one.  Juan Apodaca hit a double and drove in two runs.  Jae-Hoon Ha was 2-for-3 with a run scored and Logan Watkins drove stole his 19th base of the season and drove in his 36th run of the season.  It was a good comeback attempt, but turned out to be another disappointing loss.

****

FULL BOX SCORE

Casey Coleman got scratched from his start so Ryan Rowland-Smith took his place and struggled giving up five runs, three earned in just four innings pitched.  All of those runs came in the second and Iowa could never rebound losing 9-1.  Offensively Brett Jackson was 2-for-4 with the Cubs lone RBI.  Dave Sappelt and Blake Lalli each had two hits and both had a double.  Adrian Cardenas and Welington Castillo had doubles as well.  Other than that not much excitement coming from Iowa on Thursday night.

FULL BOX SCORE

It was a rough one for Tennessee losing the Jackson 9-2.  Nicholas Struck got the start and took the loss giving up six runs in just five innings of work.  Casey Harman pitched an inning in relief and was not any better giving up another three runs.  The good news from the staff came from Frank Batista and Tony Zych who combined to pitch the last three scorelss innings of the game.  Not much happened on the offensive side of things either.  Logan Watkins had two hits including a triple.  Justin Bour and Greg Rohan were the only Smokies to record RBIs, they also had a hit each.  Junior Lake and Jae-Hoon Ha were the only other Smokies to have a hit in the game.  Not a very good night for Tennessee on Tuesday.

Iowa scored two in the first, but that was all they could push across losing to New Orleans 7-2.  Chris Volstad was bad again giving up seven runs, six earned on eight hits in 5.2 innings pitched.  Brett Jackson was 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored, he also stole his 22nd base of the season.  Josh Vitters also had two hits and drove in his 52nd run of the season.  Alfredo Amezaga and Dave Sappelt each had two hits and Sappelt drove in a run.

Full 2012 Cubs Draft Recap

That was a long three days for everyone involved, I will try to break it down to the best of my ability for you.  It’s obvious that the Cubs needed to fill their system with pitching depth and it appears that they did so.

The Cubs had 42 picks in this years draft, 40 round plus two compensation (or sandwhich) picks.  In years past the draft has been 50 rounds, under the new CBA the rounds were reduced to 40.  The breakdown of the 42 picks is as follows, 22 pitchers (18 RHP, 4 LHP), seven infielders, eight outfielders, and five catchers.  Of those players 20 were college players, seven were junior college players, and the Cubs drafted 15 high school players. 

Here’s the full list…
