Cubs Promote Dan Vogelbach to High-A Daytona

The Cubs promoted another one of their top prospects on Monday. The Cubs sent first baseman Dan Vogelbach from Kane County to the Daytona Cubs on the same day Kris Bryant was promoted to Daytona from Boise.

Dan Vogelbach is expected to report to Daytona on Tuesday, and Trevor Gretzky has been promoted from Boise to Kane County to take Vogelbach’s spot on the Cougars’ roster.

Dan Vogelbach put together a very good season with Kane County and was named the organization’s player of the month for July. Vogelbach hit .330/.417/.500 with four doubles, four home runs and a .917 OPS last month.

Dan Vogelbach hit .284/.364/.450/.814 with 21 doubles and 17 home runs in 114 games with Kane County this season.

Vogelbach and Bryant will be able to play with Daytona in the post-season.

    The potential of these guys from the plate is definitely exciting, especially after another showing like tonight from the big league squad. I know that Vogelbach isn’t a prototypical fielder. I know that his main position is held by Rizzo. I know that moving to the OF would further crowd that situation and go against the new FO’s preference for great athletes and fielders.

    He can, however, do one thing that cannot be taught or overlooked. This dude can straight up slug the ball. If he keeps it up, they will have to find a place for him in the future plans. You don’t want eight guys like Vogelbach in your lineup, but one or two can sure do some serious damage.

      And on a side note, if Gretzky ever makes the show, can there be a clause in his contract that his sister must come to every game and WGN/Comcast must pan to her between every inning? lol

        Heck, between Dad and his sister showing up, they might out draw the parent club in attendance. She is stunning.

          Fans may not know Gretzky by name and simply say, you know he’s the one with the good looking sister:)

    Daytona just added middle of the order bats( In the minors at least) to their lineup for the stretch run…

    I’m glad that Vogelbach got promoted, but I was planning on going to Kane County on Sunday to see him. Not fair.
