McLeod said Cubs are looking forward to getting Jensen signed and in their Pitch Lab. Said pitching coord. Brendan Sagara was in draft room and watched a lot of tape, Jensen was one of the ones he was most excited about. Here's what's happening in that lab

J.McLeod admits draft pick Ryan Jensen is the kind of player the team may not have taken in the past.Not prototypical at just 6 ft ft though he throws upper 90's. 
@keithlaw
 had him ranked 32 so not a reach according to him.They liked what he was able to do 'wire to wire' this yr

10:00   Why’d the Cubs reach on Jensen?Eric A Longenhagen
10:01   wouldn't consider it a reach. elite fastball velo+mvmt combo. Size and secondary depth are questions but the kid has carved most of the year
Kiley McDaniel
10:01   and fits modern baseball with very good short burst characteristics
