Chicago Cubs Future Prospect Trey McNutt

By Greg Bolotin

For Trey McNutt the 2011 season was a blur. He battled injuries all through the season.  Being the number seven prospect in the Chicago Cubs organization, McNutt is looking forward to getting back on the field in spring training playing with the rest of the Chicago Cubs organization. McNutt more importantly is hoping to have an injury free 2012 season.

Trey McNutt went 5-6 with an era of 4.55 in 2011. The Chicago Cubs are hoping he can bounce back from his injury plagued 2011 season, and pitch like he did in 2010. That season Trey McNutt got the Chicago Cubs attention by having a starting record of 10-1 with a 2.48 era in 25 starts. McNutt did this while pitching on three different levels of the Chicago Cubs minor league system.

McNutt has to be patient and continues to listen to his coaches. Who will help him work on his mechanics to improve on the great talent he possesses. If Trey McNutt  in 2012, can pitch at least 150 to 175 innings in the minor leagues, or have the pitching statistics close or better  than his  2010 season, This would be a great step forward for Trey McNutt

If the Chicago Cubs see, during the 2012 spring training, continued improvement in McNutt’s pitching abilities they could bring him up in September and give him a chance of pitching in the majors.  It will be interesting to see if the Chicago Cubs do indeed bring him up or let him finish the season in the minor leagues. They will surely hope McNutt has a much better 2012 season, and be more confident in his pitching abilities. The Chicago Cubs will expect Trey McNutt to be at spring training battling for a spot on their major league roster in 2013.
