10/3 Minor matters
The Cubs honored Kyler Burke and Casey Coleman, the Cubs’ Minor League player and pitcher of the year, during pre-game ceremonies Saturday. They also honored trainer Nick Frangella as the Minor League athletic trainer of the year, and Ryne Sandberg, who led Double-A Tennessee to the Southern League championship. No. 1 pick Brett Jackson also attended the ceremony, his first visit to Wrigley since he was drafted in June.
Burke batted .303 with 43 doubles, three triples, 15 homers and 89 RBIs at Class A Peoria. He was acquired by the Cubs in June 2007 from San Diego for Michael Barrett. Coleman, a 15th round pick in 2008, was 14-6 with a 3.68 ERA in 27 starts for Tennessee.
