That price is something of a surprise, and tells us a few things.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
The deal could give the Cubs a whole lot of play when negotiating with their top pick, Kris Bryant.
Davis was a two-way star at Belmont, and could be a solid relief prospect.
The righty got $3.1 million from the Cubs earlier this year, and could move quickly through the system.
At least last night’s slide was called for interference. Jorge Soler hits the DL, Eduardo Sanchez clears waivers.
A few Cougars were shining in the Midwest League All-Star Game. Plus all of the other minor league highlights.
The power righty announced the deal himself on Twitter.
Some signings – like second rounder Rob Zastryzny – about which we’d already heard were also announced.
Sveum is going to do what he does, and he can’t be worried about the second-guessing he’ll receive. Also, Javier Baez picks up another award.
You’re going to be able to follow the Cubs’ short-season Low-A club as much as you want.
A big-time college lefty, Zastryzny immediately becomes one of the best arms in the Cubs’ system.
It’s great to get Skulina in the fold, and the Cubs are paying him late second round money.
As much as $1.5 to $1.7 million under slot. Doesn’t this help the Cubs in their negotiations with Kris Bryant?
The Hawks are underway with some excellent performances so far. That, plus the action from around the system this weekend.
Under what circumstances would the Cubs consider “buying” this year? And what prospects could the Cubs use as bait?
