    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.

    Don't know basically anything about either of these guys. Felix Stevens Canizares is huge though. He was apparently 6'4 214 at 17 years old. $300k isn't really much money in terms of IFAs but it's enough to make you a fringe prospect.

    The Cubs had multiple scouts at Saturday night’s game between Cal and Pepperdine at Grand Canyon University. More than three dozen major-league scouts watched Cal first baseman Andrew Vaughn, who is projected as a top-five pick in the 2019 amateur draft, hit a two-run opposite-field home run in his first at-bat.

    A Cubs team official also attended Friday’s game between Ball State and Stanford, in which Ball State sophomore Drey Jameson threw six no-hit innings while striking out nine with a fastball clocked as high as 97 mph.

    Big year for Cubs pitchers in the minor. Got some guys who can take the next steps.

    Alex Lange- Does he start to become a front line starter or does he look like the bullpen is his future. Nasty hammer on him

    Adbert Alzolay- Does he continue to get stronger? Cubs love the guy. Another is he going to stay a starter or wind up in bullpen.

    Brendan Little- People like him as a closer. Another one who needs to show is he a starter or a bullpen guy.

    Justin Steele- Hard throwing left with good sink. Coming back from injury but was showing real good mid rotation stuff.

    Oscar De La Cruz- Has fallen due to injuries but this guy could be something. Two plus pitches, command, getting better. Big year out of him is what I am thinking.

    I didnt mention Brailyn Marquez. He is only 20 and has a ways to go. He will probably hit a 100 on his fastball as he gets bigger. Good bit of work to do outside of that.

    I think Alozay comes up this year in the pen. I can see him as a BP arm first to acclimate to the majors. His stuff is good enough to be in high leverage situations. But I do see him in AAA as a starter until then.

    Steel I don't see promoted. I see him getting a full year in in Iowa and shut down. TJ recovery is a bit more than a lat injury. I really just see him as a legit starting option where Alozay lacks a left handed counter.

    Lange and little were a bit rough last year. I don't see any rush with them.

    Marquez has the best top end in the system but lacks command. We are talking Randy Johnson impact potential so it could also implode when talking about a raw toolbox like that.

    ODLC used drugs to overcome his injury prone body. Let's keep this in prospective at least. This shit has happened before. Players gamble on using. Get a 50 day fine and take the risk that the reward will end up as a payday. I don't try to act above it or anything. My issue is if he needs artificial means to be healthy then he is a bad gamble.

    It came up early on the MLB atbat AP.

    They do like to over project young arms here. Marquez now Has the top pitcher billing. I really hate when they do that. Underwood then ODLC then Alberto's and Alozay now Marquez. They jump on the bandwaggon the right off when the first issue comes up.

    I'm at the point of liking guys like Hendricks and Rucker. Under the radar but stable. Steele falls here also. Steady in their rankings vs skyrocket hype train and fall to reality when the talent get above HS talent.

    Roederer is really interesting and I like him. Hell I even was hyping him up a month after the draft pretty hard. But the guy i'm really interested this year is Brennen Davis. If he can hit for average he has massive tools. He could easily be a 30/30 guy in the future playing CF.

    I feel this falls under facing talent over HS. He is not even at A ball yet. A+ to AA is where the talent tends to even out so if he is excelling at that point then the hype train should start.
