Chicago Cubs’ prospect Dakota Mekkes had a heck of a July. In fact, it was about perfect for the former Jenison High School and Michigan State pitcher. As noted by Bleacher Nation, Mekkes, pitching for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans in high Class A, did not give up a run in eight appearances. In 14 1/3 innings, he allowed eight hits, struck out 20 and walked four.
