    sounds more like add another to the list at 2B with that arm slot deal. Shorten most throws.
    Not sure if it is a arm strength issue. Sounds more like he looks stiff at SS but has good fundamentals

    KW: What’s currently keeping you from hanging a 50 FV on Nico Hoerner? Would you need to see more power out of his bat to justify him inevitably moving to 2B?

    I’m pretty sure that Nico breaks the top 100 by mid. I’m also pretty sure that the Cubs hang him at SS as long as possible.

    Not shocking:

    Brailyn Marquez, LHP, Cubs No. 4
    The Cubs are in win-now mode, making it more probable that they'd part with a promising lefty who has made only two appearances in full-season ball. Marquez might have a higher ceiling than any pitcher in Chicago's system, reaching 98 mph with his fastball and flashing a plus curveball as a 19-year-old.

    just and fyi, the fangraphs coverage of the cubs farm system should be out this week. They started with the NL central and the only 2 teams remaining are the cubs and cincy.

    weird" http://www.chicagonow.com/cubs-den/2...eagues-week-8/

    Australian Baseball League

    Geelong-Korea

    On Sunday, Geelong-Korea actually grabbed the early lead and put up a fight before being snowed under by Perth 9-5. Right Fielder Kwang-Min Kwon remained consistent as he went 1-for-3 with a double and an outfield assist in the loss. Perth 9 - Geelong 5


    Geelong was able to record their second win of the season on Thursday when they made the most out of four hits to beat Melbourne 3-1. Kwang-Min Kwon got the Koreans off to a good start by belting a solo home run in the first inning as he was 1-for-3 with a walk in the game. Geelong 3 - Melbourne 1

    It was back to the familiar on Friday as the Koreans were unable to keep their offense productive in a 4-1 loss to Melbourne. Geelong moved their best hitter, right fielder Kwang-Min Kwon, up to the third spot in the batting order and he responded by going 1-for-4 in the loss. Melbourne 4 - Geelong 1

    Saturday night was “swing from the heels” night in Melbourne as the Aces and the Koreans combined for 28 hits in an 18-12 loss for Geelong. Kwang-Min Kwon tried to ignite a late inning rally as he went deep with a three-run homer in the seventh, going 1-for-4 in the game. Melbourne 18 - Geelong 12

    Sounds like Sale:

    Name another teenage lefty who touches 99. As far as we know, this is the only one, meaning Marquez is perhaps the hardest-throwing teenage southpaw on the planet right now. He also has pretty advanced fastball command for someone with that kind of heat to go along with a 6.5% walk rate over his last 100 innings of work. His secondary stuff is pretty pedestrian, but everything of his plays up against left-handed hitters because Marquez has a weird, sawed off, low-slot arm action. He’ll need to develop better ways to deal with right-handed hitters, either via command or better secondary stuff, and ultimately Marquez projects as a no. 4 starter because one cannot live on velo alone, but the elite arm strength means his ceiling is higher than that if the Cubs can work some magic with his stuff.
