Matt Szczur Promoted to Hi-A Daytona

In a long anticipated move, former Villanova baseball and football star Matt Szczur has been promoted to the Daytona Cubs of the Advanced-A Florida State League. In 66 games this season with the Peoria Chiefs of the Midwest League, Szczur has a .314 batting average with five home runs and seven stolen bases.

This is a pivotal stretch for Szczur, as many promising looking careers come to a halt in the FSL.  If he cannot demonstrate an ability to hit for at least gap power, or a get on base consistently at this level, he will no longer be viewed as a legitimate prospect, but then again the Cubs are a terrible organization when it comes to player evaluation.
