Cubs top pitching prospect Adbert Alzolay is lights out right now.
Alzolay struck out 8 over 6.0 scoreless innings Saturday night. He hit 95-96 mph on the radar gun tonight in Round Rock. Alzolay now has 23 strikeouts to just 2 walks and 2 earned runs in his last 3 starts (17.0 innings).
Adbert Alzolay, oh my. Strikes out the side in order in the 6th for the @IowaCubs to finish his outing tonight retiring his last SIXTEEN batters in a row.
Final line tonight: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 8 K, 1 BB.
Last 3 starts: 17 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 23 K, 2 BB, 1.06 ERA.

That’s incredible. Alzolay’s chances of being called up to the Cubs bullpen keep skyrocketing.
With a hole needing be to filled for the big league Cubs and Alzolay clearly ready for the show, now seems to be the time for Alzolay to be called upon.
