ST. LOUIS -- Brandon Guyer and Chris Archer have been named the Cubs' Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Year, respectively.


The two are members of Double-A Tennessee's playoff squad that begins its best-of-five Southern League Championship series Tuesday against Jacksonville.


Guyer, 24, batted .344 with 39 doubles, six triples, 13 homers, 58 RBIs, 76 runs scored, 30 stolen bases and a .398 on-base percentage in 102 games with Tennessee. He led the Southern League in slugging percentage (.588), ranked second in batting average, third in doubles, fourth in extra-base hits (58) and fifth in on-base percentage and at-bats per home run.


In his fifth professional season, Archer combined to go 15-3 with a 2.34 ERA in 28 games between Class A Daytona and Tennessee. He struck out 149 batters in 142 1/3 innings of work compared to just 65 walks, and allowed six home runs to the 590 batters he faced (one home run allowed every 98 batters faced).


Archer, 21, began the year with Daytona and went 7-1 with a 2.86 ERA and 82 strikeouts in 15 games. He won his final seven decisions (May 8-June 27), going 7-0 with a 1.86 ERA and 62 strikeouts in 10 starts before his promotion to Double-A.
