Re: players not in the game caps

I'm looking for these Cub prospects.

Darin Downs (Bosie)
12/26/84
6-3 175
Bats: R Throws:L
#44
SP
Spent all of the 2004 season with the Boise Hawks, compiling a 5-3 record and a 4.85 ERA...won Game 2 of the NWL Championship Series against Vancouver...the former 5th Round draft choice opened the 2005 season with the Peoria Chiefs, but was sent to extended spring training after posting an 18.47 ERA in two starts.Downs spent parts of the last two seasons with Boise where he had nine saves and 124 SO.

This Season: 0-2 2 starts 11.74 ERA 7.2 innings 6 strikeouts

Scouting Report (from scout.com)
A sharp 12-to-6 curveball gives this soft-tossing lefty a nasty strikeout pitch. Darin Downs, nevertheless, struggled in Rookie ball last season, even with the control that he was known for in high school. At 63 and 175 lbs, he can still bulk up and add some velocity to his fastball. This would make his changeup particularly devastating, since he has remarkable command of it for a 19-year old.

Last season was Darin Downs' second with the Class-A Hawks following a short stint with the team in his rookie campaign one year earlier. It was also a second season of up-and-down's, as witnessed by a high ERA and an average of five-plus walks per start.
Downs, a fifth round draft pick out of Santaluces High School in Lantana, Fla., features a fastball, curveball, and changeup in his repertoire. Although the velocity of the fastball ranged from 90-92 mph last season, it was evident that Downs had trouble locating the pitch at times. Those struggles would lead to high walk totals and an inconsistent strikeout-to-walk ratio from start to start throughout 2004.

"His curve and changeup never posed a problem, but the fastball was hard to spot at times," said Hawks broadcaster Mike Safford.

In four of his thirteen starts last season, Downs' walk totals either equaled or exceeded his number of strikeouts. In a start against Yakima on August 6, the left-hander walked five in only one-plus inning without managing to record a strikeout.

After that start, however, he came on strong down the stretch. Downs walked ten and struck out twenty-one in his final five starts of the season. As the walk totals lowered, so did his ERA. Downs reeled off three straight victories in August while posting a 1.05 ERA in that span.

But what about Downs' curveball?

"It has the usual twelve-to-six motion, which was just filthy," said Safford. "In the end, though, his success will revert back to spotting the fastball.

"If he is able to locate both that and his changeup, he will get ninety percent of opposing hitters out with the type of breaking ball he possesses. The last month of the season, when he was on a roll, his curve was unhittable."

Now heading into his third season of minor league ball in the Cubs' system, Downs' youth is both his biggest strength and weakness according to Safford.

"He enjoys the game, certainly," Safford said, "but at times, he lost focus when he needed it the most. The upside is that he matured at the end of the season.

"The only glaring weakness, though, was his control, especially early on in the season. When he was having trouble spotting the fastball, he was working behind in the count and as a result, that's why his strikeout-to-walk ratio varied each start."

Over two-thirds of Downs' strikeouts on the year came away from Boise's home park: Memorial Stadium. He struck out forty-two on the road in 2004 while walking just seventeen. While pitching at home, however, Downs walked eighteen while fanning only nineteen.

One key in determining Downs' success will be how he matures as a player, Safford notes.

"As long as he continues to hit the weight room and improves his mental game, he should progress. Your physical abilities will only take you so far in this game, and it's all a mental game for him. He's a gifted athlete."

Downs led the Hawks' pitching staff last season with sixty-one strikeouts.

Re: players not in the game caps

Clay Rapada AAA Iowa Cubs
#7
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 185
Position: RP
Bats: R
Throws: L
Date of Birth: 3/9/1981

Stats this year:
A 0.82 ERA, .92 WHIP, plus 4-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio and 21 saves at West Tenn got the sidearm lefty his first promotion to Triple-A last week.

Scouting Report: (from scout.com)
The southpaw has 16 saves and a 1.08 ERA in 25 appearances for Double-A West Tennessee. This after an injury riddled season a year ago that saw him compete at Daytona in only 27 games for all of 2005. The previous year at Lansing, Rapada led Lugnut relievers with a 2.33 ERA in 85 innings.

Clay Rapada: Being from Chesapeake (Va.), I’m from a pretty good baseball background. I played with some great ballplayers there, like David Wright, B.J. Upton and Ryan Zimmerman. So I’ve got some good roots and have put together some good numbers through the years with the Cubs. This year, I was fortunate to find myself here in Double-A.

Inside The Ivy: Being a sidearm lefty as you are, how much of an advantage do you feel you have?

Clay Rapada: I think it gives me more of an advantage than usual. I throw fairly hard for a sidearm guy and I have some pretty good sink on the ball. The fact that I’m able to control that sink pretty good is all the more of an advantage, because instead of just grooming straight fastballs, I’m able to throw with it and get a lot of groundballs.

Inside The Ivy: Define “fairly hard.”

Clay Rapada: I’m usually between 87 and 91 mph.

Inside The Ivy: Remind us again of your repertoire.

Clay Rapada: I throw a two-seam fastball, a slider and changeup to lefties and righties, and a curveball to lefties.
