As expected and predicted by many including here on this blog, it seems as though Adrian Cardenas will be called up to the Cubs today. Cardenas was flat out raking down in Iowa, posting a .319 batting average with two home runs, three triples, seven doubles, and 18 RBI’s. He’s slugging at a .521 clip with an on base % of .376 which is good for an .897 OPS. Cardenas makes contact a lot, he only has 5 strikeouts in 94 at bats. Cardenas bats left handed and plays 2B, so don’t be surprised if he is in the lineup tonight if he makes it to Chicago in time. This could be something that happens more times than not, Barney has struggled and if Cardenas makes an immediate impact with the bat he might stick.
