Steele to start for Iowa Wednesday, then ‘we'll see'

All eyes are on the players who could make up the next Cubs core. Enter Justin Steele. The rookie southpaw has at least one more start to make in Triple-A before re-joining the big-league team as a starter. He’s scheduled to take the mound for the Iowa Cubs on Wednesday, Cubs manager David Ross said before the Cubs’ series opener at Colorado on Tuesday.

2021 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 105

When last I wrote, I said that we were due for another wild day. The day exceeded my expectations by as much as half. I’d be surprised if a new record wasn’t set for both number of deals and number of players moved. The Cubs were not the only team that appeared to be trying to trade away everyone that wasn’t signed to a long term deal. The Cubs traded nine players from their active roster. That by itself is more than one third of a team. If we throw in the two players traded before the season (fuzzy math since some of the players didn’t co-exist as teammates), that was 11 players traded since the end of last season. That’s a massive turnover. And it doesn’t even get into the number of guys who were allowed to leave after last season via free agency.

Chicago Cubs Minor League Wrap: July 30

It’s been a long day and I honestly fell asleep while watching the minor league games this evening. But at least after today, there’s good news on the farm. Oh, I’m sorry. Actually everyone who finished their game lost today. Except the ACL Cubs. That sort of counts as good news, except they played a seven-inning game that wasn’t even a doubleheader.

Pratto's slam, Olivares' ninth-inning homer, help Chasers out-slug Mud Hens

TOLEDO, Ohio -- First baseman Nick Pratto launched a go-ahead grand slam in the fifth inning and right-fielder Edward Olivares smacked a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning to lead the Omaha Storm Chasers to a 14-12 win over the Toledo Mud Hens on Wednesday at Fifth Third Field. The game, which lasted 4:33, was the longest game of the season for Omaha (43-29).

Iowa Cubs

Hey everyone! As my earlier post suggests, I am possibly moving to Des Moines soon. I saw that it was home to the Iowa Cubs and I'm a gigantic baseball fan! What are your experiences like? Are there season tickets? Are there events that they have that you love? In my experience, minor league games are so much more fun than major league games. I've always had cool giveaways, players willing (and loving) to sign stuff for kids, etc. Any info is greatly appreciated! submitted by /u/Primary_Ad_3844 [link] [comments]

Chicago Cubs Minor League Wrap: July 28

So I’m on vacation and the hotel wi-fi is terrible. So this is going to be more brief than normal. The Iowa Cubs were battered by the Louisville Bats (Reds) 17-5. Joe Biagini was knocked around for seven runs on seven hits (including two home runs) over 4.1 innings. Biagini walked three and struck out seven.

Cubs plan on stretching Thompson into starter’s role

Right-handed pitcher Keegan Thompson was sent down to Iowa on Tuesday, while left-handed Kyle Ryan and right-handed Cory Abbott returned, filling the roster spot created by the trade of Andrew Chafin. Thompson had a three-inning save against Arizona on Friday, then pitched again Monday, so he was going to need...
