Cubs Minor League Wrap: July 12

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Without their two big bats, Iowa spit a doubleheader. Daytona won a rain-shortened game.

Just a reminder, Kris Bryant and Javier Baez will play in the SiriusXM Futures Game tomorrow at 4 pm Chicago time. The game will be televised on the MLB Network. There will be a game thread for the Futures Game, which will post during the Cubs-Braves game tomorrow.

Bryant will start at third base for the US team and bat fourth. Baez is a reserve for the World team.

This also answers any possible question about why Baez and Bryant didn't play for Iowa today. They're already in Minneapolis.

Iowa Cubs
