Chicago Cubs: Tseng MiLB pitcher of the month; Quintana questions?
The Chicago Cubs don’t have what they once did in the minor league system. Ad pitchers have always been hard to come by. But Jen-Ho Tseng continues to impress.
The Chicago Cubs‘ Jen-Ho Tseng won’t be showing up in Wrigley this season. But he might not be that far off for next season. Tseng continues to impress in Iowa, Posting a 3.26 ERA in 81 starts in his minor league career. Tseng was named pitcher of the month, and this is is a predominantly hitters league. Tseng posted a 2.25 ERA in four starts and looks to continue building his resume.
Cubs first-round pick Alex Lange has been a mixed bag in his first two starts for the Cubs. After a strong outing in his first appearance, going just two innings but striking out three of the six batters he faced. His second outing was a different story. He surrendered three runs in just 1 2/3 innings of work. But Lange is still very young, and these won’t be the only hiccups he has along the way.
Most fans wanted to see the Cubs go and get a young, controllable starter at the deadline. They did in Jose Quintana. No people are upset they gave up too much, at least if you look at Twitter. In a world full of “hot takes”, none is hotter–like fresh poop–than Twitter. Have one? Share it and the world–at least your followers–will know how you feel about something. He’s had a quality start in four of five, but the Cubs have won just two of those. He must not be that good. *Sarcasm*
