Louisville is still playing...

Ahh...   Thanks much!  That's good, because it means he can't have failed his physical if he hasn't even taken it yet!
 :)   That would also explain the delay for any other overslots that depend on both his overage and his underslot.

McAvene pitched today in the College WS.

AZ Philís report:

Cubs 3rd round draft pick RHRP Michael McAvene threw two innings (7th & 8th innings) for Louisville in today's elimination game vs Auburn, protecting a three-run lead. (Louisville won the game and will advance to play the loser of Vanderbilt-Mississippi State tomorrow).

MICHAEL McAVENE: 2.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 3 K, 1 GIDP, 2/0 GO/AO, 41 pitches (25 strikes)

McAvene looked rusty, probably because he hadn't pitched for more than two weeks after being suspended for four games after arguing a ball-strike call with the home plate umpire in a Regional game vs UIC.

His FB sat 96-97 in his first inning of work before going down to 94-95 (T-96) at the end of his second inning when he got the third out by strike out (swinging) with the bases loaded on a 3-2 96 MPH FB. He also displayed a knee-buckling 80-82 MPH SL/CV (slurve), and he threw a couple of mediocre "show me" CH that he can junk when he turns pro.

McEvene got $500,000, around $65,000 below spot.

6th rounder Ethan Hearn is a done deal at 950K, which is late 2nd round money...

Not Cubs related, but Ď21 top prospect Blaze Jordan has reclassified to Ď20.

Google him if youíre not familiar with him...heís local to me...from the same HS as Austin Riley...heís an early candidate for #1 next year.

Probably a good move to get out of Kumar Rockerís class.

Heís a pitcher?  Getting money early is always a good idea. Rocker sure looks nice, but it is a long way until his junior year.

So, Cubs did not sign 10th round JUCO catcher Wyatt Hendrie (one of only two guys in first 10 rounds of MLB draft who didnít sign) nor 11th round JUCO SS Mack Chambers.

But, Jim Callis notes:

The @Cubs may not have signed their 10th-rder but did land a nice arm in Georgia Southern RHP Joe Nahas. He came on late & looked VG in the @Official_CCBL, running his fastball up to 95 mph & backing it up with a solid slider. His $135k bonus is the most for a NDFA this year.

Looks like control could be a problem. Also seems to take a baby stride from the wind. I wonder if the increased velocity came from a mechanical tweak.
