Cubs likely to call up Samardzija

Postby ndirish84 » Fri Jul 25, 2008 3:29 am

With Kerry Wood on the DL, Samardzija is expected to be called up. Being a diehard ND fan, I have to ask.. Will Jeff have any fantasy relevance at all this season?? I would love to have him on my team.

He's been mediocore at best in the minors...I don't have high expectations but you never know.

He pitched much better in AAA than in A or AA ball. I think you could expect some decent K numbers but he'll likely get hit hard at times too.

I looked at the rest of his career for you.... :-)

His college career
240.1 IP
236 hits
102 ER
84 BB
165 K (less than 2-1 K/BB ratio)
6.18 K/9
3.82 ERA
1.33 WHIP

His minor league career before the awesome 37 IP he has in AAA this year...
247.2 IP
270 hits
122 ER
98 BB
126 K (awful K/BB ratio)
4.58 K/9
4.43 ERA
1.48 WHIP


I might be a little nice in saying he has been mediocore... :-? :-)

Is it bad that the Cubs have a better wide receiver prospect in their minor league system than the Bears have on the professional team?
