Duncan Robinson ‘16: Another Kyle?

The second important Dartmouth pitcher in the Chicago Cubs’ organization, Duncan Robinson ‘16, is tearing a swath at Class-A South Bend. He was just named the Cubbies’ Minor League Pitcher of the Month for May. The Chicago Tribune reports:

Robinson, 23, went 2-1 with a 1.00 ERA in five games. Robinson has struck out 24 while walking two in 27 innings. His 0.70 WHIP led the Midwest League in May.

The 6-foot-6, 230-pound Robinson ranks fourth in the Midwest League with a 1.34 ERA, and he has struck out 43 while walking seven in 53 2/3 innings.

Robinson was a ninth-round pick out of Dartmouth in the 2016 draft.

Addendum: One has to think that coach Whalen’s pool of potential recruits improves each time an alum does well in the majors.

Addendum: At this point in the season Kyle Hendricks is 4-3 with a 4.09 ERA. His slow start mirrors the Cubs’ early season struggles. He been on the disabled list for the last week due to tendinitis in his pitching hand.

Addendum: And in case you missed it (I did), Beau Sulser ‘16 was named 2017 Ivy League Pitcher of the Year about a month ago. He was taken this week in the 10th round of the MLB Draft by the Pirates. Big Green Alert reports that he was the first Ivy player drafted.

Also, Pitcher Michael Danielak ‘17 was picked in the 19th round by the Athletics.
