Daily Minors Recap: Duane Underwood battles, Russell continues to pitch well, Barrett Loux pulled from game early.
Limited action today after a thrilling Cubs win. Iowa 2 – New Orleans 1 Barrett Loux was pulled after 40 pitches.and 2.2 scoreless with what seems to be an elbow injury.    It’s hard not to feel for Loox, who has fought injuries since the day he was originally drafted.  He had come back with...

No intro today…let’s go straight to the recaps… New Orleans 9 – Iowa 2 This one was over quickly.  Journeyman Jeffrey Antigua‘s smoke and mirrors act wasn’t fooling the Zephyrs today.  They jumped on him in the first inning for 6 runs and scored 9 overall (4 earned) in 3.2 innings.  To be fair, Antigua...

Daily Minors Recap: Stinnett hits triple digits? Black and Roach also have strong outings
The recaps are now missing it’s top two prospects, but this is a deep system and there shouldn’t be any more significant promotions for awhile — at least not to the MLB club. Iowa should get interesting when they receive Arismendy Alcantara (likely tomorrow) to join Christian Villanueva Matt Szczur and, eventually, Javier Baez. Iowa... Read more »

Daily Minors Recaps: McKinney, Vogelbach hit first HRs; Hannemann and Lake get game-winning hits
Well, well, well.  These Bryant-less recaps are now Russell-less as well.  Your AAA Iowa infield will now be Christian Villanueva, Javier Baez, Arismendy Alcantara and…maybe soon, Dan Vogelbach? I am probably jumping ahead there but the big strong 1B is having himself quite a start at AA. On with the recap… OKC 8 – Iowa... Read more »

Daily Cubs Minors Recap: Wada starts for Iowa, Pineyro sharp; Vogelbach stays hot
It sure seemed like Addison Russell missed Kris Bryant today,  He was pretty much out there on his own when it coems to top prospects in the Iowa lineup — and he matched Bryant’s 0 for 4 day with 3 strikeouts.  Lots of action today, so let’s get started… OKC 3 – Iowa 2 Tsuyoshi... Read more »

Daily Cubs Minors Recap: Bryant leaves Iowa in style, Russell keeps hitting, Null sharp again
I am still trying to get past the giddy stage but it’s not happening. I am probably going to be up all night. The good news is that the game starts at 11:20 AM for me, so at least it seems like it will come on earlier. Iowa 10 – New Orleans 7 LHP Eric... Read more »

Daily Minors Recap: Strong starts for pitchers Tseng, Martinez, and Williams

Daily Minors Recap:  Strong starts for pitchers Tseng, Martinez, and Williams

Iowa was postponed and Tennessee had the day off. As a reminder,... Read more »
