DES MOINES, Iowa — Another top Cubs prospect is working his way to Des Moines, but the I-Cubs did just fine without him Wednesday.
Jorge Soler is a Cuban defector signed to a $30 million deal. It’s not known when Soler will roam the outfield for Iowa, but it should be soon.
Meanwhile the I-Cubs have to play on with only Kris Bryant and Javier Baez.
Second inning, Ryan Kalish singles off Zephyrs pitcher Brad Penny. Bryant scores, making it a 1-1 game.
Baez snapped a 15-game hitting streak Tuesday night, and started a new one Wednesday. Baez crushes one off the fence and two runs score.
I-Cubs score 13-runs and Dae-Eun Rhee gets his first Triple-A win. Final score is 13-4, I-Cubs over Zephyrs.
