- Cubs #2 prospect, SS Nico Hoerner had one awesome day. Hoerner went 1-for-3 with a homer in game two. It wasn’t an average homer, it was an inside-the-parker that should never have been inside-the-park. Thanks to some great speed, Hoerner scored in less than 15 seconds on a blooper into left field. That’s FAST. On top of that, Hoerner is now batting .303/.385/.500 this season through 16 games. It’s only a matter of time before the kid is in Iowa.
