Minor League Pitchers Hot-Hot-Hot
by alex ciepley
To follow up on Christian's report below: Just looking through my daily Baseball America Prospect Report email, I'm pleased to see that several of the Cubs' top pitching prospects had excellent outings yesterday:
TM PITCHERS IP H R ER BB K ERA CHC B.Brownlie (W,1-0) 5.0 3 1 1 1 7 1.80 CHC A.Sisco (L,0-1) 6.0 7 2 1 1 5 1.50 CHC S.Marshall (W,1-0) 6.0 3 0 0 0 7 0.00
I think Brownlie is often overlooked a bit in the Cubs system. While health has been a concern to this point in his Cubs career, I could see him taking off and challenging Angel Guzman's status as "can't miss callup".
