A quick look at the Cubs minor leaguers on Friday, July 27.
The AZL Cubs dropped a low scoring game to the AZL Athletics 3-1. Lendy Castillo got the start as he continues to work his way back allowing one run on two hits in four innings. He struck out six and took a no decision in this one. Tyler Bremer gave up two runs and took the loss. Carlos Martinez-Pumarino and Jin-Young Kim combined to pitch 3.2 scoreless innings, but the Cubs offense couldn’t come back. The Cubs got their run in the first when Albert Almora hit a two-run double and then scored on a Jorge Soler RBI single. Soler would add another hit on the night and stole a base. Carlos Penalver was the only other Cubs player to record a hit on Friday. This is not what we have come to expect from the Cubs, but they will get back on track soon.

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…
