Ding, ding, ding. I love when they come in bunches.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
The Cubs picked up a new prospect yesterday – 20-year-old RHP Jonathan Martinez – from the Dodgers.
The Cubs last two top picks did some fun things last night.
He could get in a full final month at AA before pitching this Fall.
You had reactions and questions, Luke has responses and answers.
When there are names like Jeffrey Baez and Will Remillard showing up at the *end* of the top 40, you know you’ve got some depth.

When a guy like Addison Russell can become momentarily obscured, you know your organization’s farm system is ridiculous.
Each is blistering hot, and each is a lot of fun right now.
The Cubs’ top setup arm will get a little respite at AAA.
