The Chicago Cubs are expected to call up their top pitching prospect, Adbert Alzolay, next week per sources.
He is expected to get the call for next weekend’s series against the Cincinnati Reds (starting on the 18th). Alzolay has posted a 2.91 ERA with a efficient WHIP of 1.06 in 21.2 innings pitched this season. Last year he had a combined 2.99 ERA with the Tennessee Smokies (AA) and Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Advanced A).
Adbert was just recently shuffled in the Iowa rotation to line up for next Saturday’s game (double header).
