Earlier this year I read that he has a low 90s FB, curve, and change-up; pretty generic righty - who has a chance because of good command

Fangraphs' Cubs list is up:

Not a lot of high grades, but as you read through the write-ups, it seems like there's the potential for a lot of these 45's and 40's to really blossom into something more. Jives well with the assessments of Cubs' brass that there is a breadth of young talent at the lower levels

Just a reminder on the 20-80 scale with regards to pitchers.
#1- 5-7 WAR/Season
#2- 4-5 WAR/Season
#3- 2.5-4 WAR/Season
#4- 2-2.5 WAR/Season
#5- 1.5 WAR/Season.

44 SP had >2 WAR last year
6 SP had 1.5-2 WAR last year

Thanks for the link, Playtwo.  Seems like a really good young man.  Hope things work out for him (and the Cubs).

Thanks for the Lange article, P2.  Everything we've heard about him sure suggests he has the right make-up!

Let's hope he can stay healthy!

In the minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft, the Cubs lost Alberto Mineo, Andrew Ely, and Chris Nunn.
