Chicago Cubs Have Interest in Bringing Back Chang-Yong Lim

According to a report, the Chicago Cubs have expressed interest in re-signing relief pitcher Chang-Yong Lim. The Cubs previously signed Lim as a free agent in December of 2012. Lim was signed to a 2-year minor-league deal. However, the Cubs decided to remove him off their 40-man roster and non-tendered him. Lim then became a free agent after he was recovering from surgery. In all levels of the minors for th ...

MiLB Season in Review: Tyler Flowers

The White Sox don't have the greatest farm system in the world, opting to move a number of top prospects in order to acquire major league talent. While the merits of that plan can be debated, it has resulted in the White Sox having only a handful of really interesting prospects to follow right now. Coming into the season, Tyler Flowers was among that short list of prospects to watch, and everyone had him pe ...

Cubs MiLB Prospect Season in Review: Jay Jackson

Coming into the 2010 season, Jay Jackson was one of the two best pitching prospects in the organization, and he was also the closest to the major leagues. While Andrew Cashner was starting the season in AA trying to become a starting pitcher, Jackson was in AAA Iowa having already shown he could be a starter. In 24 starts across three levels in 2009, Jackson posted a 2.98 ERA in 127 innings. 2010 was a fair ...

MiLB Prospect Season in Review: Hak-Ju Lee

Over the next week or so (or until I get bored of doing it), I'm going to review the 2010 season for a number of the Cubs' top prospects. These reviews will be in no real order, and it is possible I forget a key guy or two, but hopefully they accomplish something. First up is Korean shortstop Hak-Ju Lee, the man who will eventually replace Starlin Castro (because obviously the Cubs have seen enough of him a ...

Cubs’ AAA, AA Teams Having Great Years

While the Major League team has struggled through one of the more disappointing seasons in recent memory, two Cubs teams haven't been terrible this season. The AAA Iowa Cubs and AA Tennessee Smokies are both winning a lot of games, and both should be headed to the playoffs. The Iowa Cubs, managed by Cubs' legend Ryne Sandberg, are currently 81-60, in first place in their division. If the I-Cubs win two of t ...

Cubs Minor League Update 8/30

Iowa Cubs (AAA)- Beat Omaha 8-7 Chris Carpenter made his second AAA start, and it was certainly an improvement over his first try at AAA. He went six innings, allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks. He's still got a lot of improving to do though, the transition to AAA hasn't been easy so far. Jeff Gray and Jeff Stevens finished off the game for the I-Cubs. Gray allowed three runs in an inning and a th ...

Cubs Minor League Update 8/29

Iowa Cubs (AAA)- Lost to Omaha 5-4 Austin Bibens-Dirkx had a rough outing, lasting just four 2/3 innings. He allowed five runs (three earned) on five hits and four walks. He also had a wild pitch, which all ads up to him probably having a rough day with his command. Robinson Chirinos (C) went 1-3 and was hit by a pitch. Brian LaHair (1B, also LF +RF sometimes) went 1-4 with a home run. I don't think he can ...

Cubs Minor League Update 8/25

A few notable pitching debuts last night, so let's get to it. Iowa Cubs (AAA)- Lost to Nashville 6-4 Chris Carpenter made his first AAA start, and he didn't do too well. In three innings he allowed three runs on seven hits and four walks. He did get four strikeouts, and at least there is nowhere to go but up from here. Marquez Smith (3B) went 1-5, and committed his 9th error of the season. Brad Snyder (RF) ...
