South Bend Cubs: the journey of Cael Brockmeyer

At this rate, we should see Cael Brockmeyer with the Chicago Cubs shortly after the All Star break. Not really, but Mr. Brockmeyer has certainly had a busy couple of weeks. The catcher/first baseman started the 2015 seaon in South Bend where WE. LOVED. HIM.

After 63 games and a trip to the Midwest League All Star Game in Peoria, he was promoted to High A Myrtle Beach. Brockmeyer finished his stint in South Bend with: 65 H, 16 2B, 5 HR, 33 RBI and 27 BB. His ABG was .274, OBP .356, SLG .414 and his  OPS was .769.

For the Pelicans, Brockmeyer batted only .083, going 1-12. Cael got his only hit in his first game. In that game, he also struck out once and earned one walk . The next three games saw him striking out five more times though he did pick up 3 RBI. He would go only 1-12 before being moved to TN.

For the Smokies, Cael went 3-13 for a .231 BA. Brockmeyer again got his first hit in his first game, a solo home run.

Decent company for Mr. Brockmeyer, wouldn’t you say? He would pick up two more hits and one more RBI before being sent to Iowa. The Smokies regular catcher, a guy you may have heard of named Kyle Schwarber, is currently inactive, on his way to the Futures game.

Unless something unforseen happens, Brockmeyer will likely return to Tennessee once Schwarber returns to Iowa. It sure has been an interesting couple of weeks though.
