Chicago Cubs: A dominant week in Iowa

Before he was taking at-bats in the Show last year, Robel Garcia was working his way through the system and impressively showing up. Garcia may have hit just .208 in his 31 games at the big league level, but he did carry his own, especially in Iowa.

Over a week heading into the final week of June, Garcia put up his Weber-like numbers in a seven-game span. Garcia slashed .435/.519/1.043 and an insane 1.562 OPS. The switch-hitting infielder posted a .609 ISO for goodness sakes.

While Garcia did swing-and-miss quite a bit, a 25.9 percent rate to be specific, he did manage a respectable 14.8 percent walk rate, and six extra-base hits to include four home runs in 23 at-bats. It is another one of those drawn-out ‘moments,’ but it is important to acknowledge hot streaks all the same, and Garcia found fire with his stretch.
