The Chicago Cubs have handed out their Minor League individual honors for a key rebuilding year in the organization.
Infielder Logan Watkins, who finished the season with the Double-A Tennessee Smokies, was named the Cubs' Minor League Player of the Year. The 23-year-old batted .281 with nine home runs and 52 RBI in 133 games. He also led the Southern League with 93 runs scored.
Tennessee's Nick Struck, a 22-year-old starting pitcher, was named the organization's Minor League Pitcher of the Year. Struck posted a 3.18 ERA and recorded a 14-10 record in 28 games, leading the Southern League in wins and ranking fourth in ERA.
Both Watkins and Struck will be honored prior to the Cubs' October 1 game with the Houston Astros at Wrigley Field.
