PROMOTION: David Bote Called-Up to Cubs, Drives in 2
Chicago Cubs 2B prospect David Bote was called-up to the big club yesterday from AAA Iowa. Bote, 25, then drove in 2 runs with a pinch-hit double in the 2nd inning of yesterday’s game against the Marlins. Bote is probably only a stop-gap measure for the Cubs until Jason Heyward comes back from the 7-day concussion DL. However, Bote has been very good at AAA this season (#2 overall 2B at AAA in 2018 by our metrics), and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him get an extended run in the majors this summer.
