More people might read this if it was in the Cubs 18 topic.

35th-rder Edmond Americaan agrees w/@Cubs on $208,500 bonus ($83,500 counts vs slot). Chipola (Fla.) JC OF, plus speed is best tool & plays on bases and in CF, line-drive/contact bat. Florida International recruit. @MLBDraft

His JC stats at Chippola were really good.  Think they play some pretty good teams, but he hit well over .400, walks/HBP > K's, hit 8 HR, think OBP > .500. 

will be interesting to see how he does and how quickly they get him up to South Bend.

My mistake.

I wasn't mad, just thought it was a good talking point.

Chipola is a JC baseball factory.

Cubs did seem to go all in on the fast OF this year.

Herron, Artis, Americaan and maybe Pagan (IIRC).

This was the third time Americaan was drafted.

One of the biggest “tools” the Cubs are now evaluating is vision.

Cubs also signed Niels Stone.  The only remaining names that aren't accounted for are Layne Looney, a 5'11 pitcher from Richmond, and Julius Boyd, a HS OF from California. 

I'm guessing Boyd won't be signing.  This late in the game is also seems likely that Looney won't be signing.  I would imagine that Looney is more likely than Boyd.

No Looney or Boyd. Taylor still has some time based on when his season ended.

Looney Boyd...  Why do I think of Mel Blanc when I hear that?
