Replacing the injured Luis Valbuena, who went on the DL with a strained oblique, the Cubs’ 2012 Minor League Player of the Year Logan Watkins made his major league debut Sunday afternoon against the Dodgers. The 23-year-old got the start at second base and recorded his first big league hit in the bottom of the sixth off Los Angeles’ Stephen Fife. The left-handed hitter took a fastball to left field for a single and finished 1-for-4 on the day as the Cubs fell 1-0.
