Around the Minors- May 25th

Matt Swain

Illinois engineering student, way too emotionally invested in the Cubs.

AAA Iowa Cubs- W 8-2

Player(s) of the Game:
SP Casey Coleman- 6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

  • Coleman's BABIP on the year has been incredibly low (.235 entering Tuesday), but on the bright side he's controlling the zone beautifully. He's getting lucky again this year, albeit in a different way (hits as opposed to HRs). Makes you wonder if he has a skill for being lucky.

AA Tennessee Smokies- Off Day

A+ Daytona Cubs- W 5-3

Player(s) of the Game:
SP Brooks Raley- 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

A Peoria Chiefs- W 2-0

Player(s) of the Game:
SP Trey McNutt- 5 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

  • McNutt's terrific season continued as he shut down perhaps the league's best offense. He's allowed just 29 hits and 9 runs in 42.2 innings, while striking out 43. He has really busted out this year as a top prospect, and could move up as high as 4-6 in the next rankings with the graduations of Colvin and Castro and Kyler Burke's struggles.
