#Cubs Minor League report

Tuesday’s games

Josh Collmenter gave up three hits over four scoreless innings in Iowa’s 3-2 win over Memphis. It was Collmenter’s second start. Jack Leathersich threw a scoreless inning. Tommy La Stella was 2-for-4 with a double and scored a run. Stephen Bruno hit a solo homer.

Tennessee swept a doubleheader against Jackson, and Kelly Dugan and Ben Carhart had amazing days. Dugan combined to go 5-for-8 with two doubles, two homers, five RBI and five runs scored. Carhart also homered in both games and was 5-for-8. He drove in five runs and scored three. His two-run homer with two outs in the first game was the game-winner.

Myrtle Beach shutout Carolina, 7-0. Trevor Clifton struck out 10 and gave up three hits over 6 2/3 innings. David Bote had three hits and one RBI. Ian Rice had three RBI.

Eloy Jimenez, who was named the Midwest League MVP and Prospect of the Year, hit a solo home run in South Bend’s 6-5 loss to West Michigan. Jimenez is batting .335. Oscar De La Cruz gave up five hits over five scoreless innings.

Eugene lost, 3-1, to Everett. Dylan Cease gave up one run on one hit and two walks while striking out seven over four innings. Jose Paniagua hit a double and drove in the only run.

Mesa beat the Giants, 5-3. Michael Rucker, the Cubs’ 11th round pick, struck out three over two innings and has yet to give up an earned run in 8 2/3 innings.



Do the Cubs plan to send scouts to Los Angeles next Tuesday when Tim Tebow will showcase his baseball skills for any or all the 30 major league organizations which have been notified about the event, one which will be closed to the public? I suggest it`s a fool`s errand, but I`m open to other viewpoints.

Why does the Cubs rookie catcher not appear in the MLB stats under rookies or even everyday players? He is not even listed as a player. They have no stats on him.
Ron Stewart

I don’t know re: rookie list. I’ll ask. Contreras is listed in the Cubs stats

Thanks Carrie, he’s going to be a terrific player and is having a good start. He hit a home run on the first major league pitch he saw.
