    He is having some issues with the high stuff early on, that's for sure. But the ump boned him in this AB. Should have taken a 4 pitch walk, but he called 2 of them strikes that were a few inches...

    Ewwwww. A huge increase in the number of slutters thrown, followed by an almost 2 mph dip in fastball velocity, is exactly what you don't want to see. Hopefully it was just a blip.

    Not really. I seem to recall him sitting around 91, with a fringy slider during his final year in the organization.

    Until he blows his elbow from throwing so many slutters, yes. He's legit.

    I snooped around and found the Cubs blurbs over at NSBB. They put a freaking J.D. Drew comp on McKinney. Why did they have to go and do that? Now all I am going to dream about is homegrown J.D....

    Anyone have a BP subscription? They have game scouting reports for Schwarber, McKinney and Vogelbach up today, and alas, I have not had a subscription for quite some time now. I'm really interested...

    I had not realized that they were playing such good baseball of late. Last I checked, I think they were 4 games back of even a WC spot. Flash forward a few weeks and they are only 1 game back of...

    That's weird. Dodgers aren't really a team you would expect to give up a better prospect in exchange for saving a small amount of cash (probably a million or less). I'm sure Barney could have been...

    Too legit of a prospect.

    I'm going with brief 2011 draft scare, Onelki Garcia. A LHP who is currently recovering from elbow surgery.

    Let's not forget the fact that they promoted Singleton the SAME DAY it was announced that he signed a long-term extension, thus taking service time out of the equation. Yes, all teams heavily factor...

    Nice to see him performing really well the past few games, after a stretch where he couldn't do anything right at the plate.

    Steele and Sands have both been good in their very limited time down in...

    Just take Brett Jackson off the 40 man and bring him up in September. He's already 26 and is dominating in the minors.

    Yeah, weren't 9 of the 10 spots occupied by Cubs minor leaguers right after the Shark trade? I think only Joey Gallo made it from another team.

    Speaking of Gallo, just imagine the discussions...

    Crap. Almora just crushed one, but it went foul by a foot or so. Ended up grounding out.

    A part of me still has this loyal devotion to Javier Baez, but man, it's close. I just want Baez to succeed and be that amazing player while also pulling antics that piss off the fans of rival...

    It was pretty much assumed that they were done when Cease signed for $1.5 million, effectively eating up the entire available spending overage. I supposed we could be surprised by somebody willing...

    July - 71.8% (Before making contact on 9 of his 12 swings last night, or 75%)


    The adjustments he made at the plate were certainly legit. Now we...

    Nah, Del Valle sat in the high 80's. A lot of people saw the report that he hit 98 while at Peoria (I think it was there), but it was really just 88, as the scoreboard was missing a light and made...

    AZPhil said he was pounding 94-95 sinkers in his second AZL appearance. Is that what the Boise gun had him at? I appreciate AZPhil's update and whatnot, but his scouting leaves a bit to be desired....
