Posted Oct 23, 2008

Chicago Cubs pitching prospect Rocky Roquet has been named to the Arizona Fall League’s 2008 Rising Stars Showcase, to be played Friday, Oct. 24 at 7:15 p.m. Arizona time.

Roquet, 25, has not allowed an earned run in 5-2/3 scoreless innings through four games in Fall League play for the Mesa Solar Sox. He has allowed four hits, three walks and held opposing hitters to a .190 average.

The right-hander spent most of 2008 at Class AA Tennessee, where he was 4-2 with three saves and a 3.70 ERA in 48-2/3 innings, striking out 54 batters and walking 27.

Roquet was promoted to Class AAA Iowa on Sept. 2 and made his Triple-A debut on Sept. 3. In two appearances with Iowa, he combined for four shutout innings, striking out five batters and allowing two hits. He has not been scored on in nine of his last 11 outings dating back to Aug. 21 at Tennessee.

The Cubs signed Roquet as a non-drafted free agent from Cal-Poly in 2006.
