The power righty announced the deal himself on Twitter.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
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?
Mine’s already been a great one. Thoughts on replacing David DeJesus, Florida State League All-Star fun, and a dominant prospect pitching performance.
Stewart is appealing the suspension. Also more on David DeJesus’s injury, and, hey, Juan Carlos Paniagua is pitching in the Cubs’ system … technically.
If Appel gets slot or close to it, Kris Bryant’s agent is going to have just a touch more ammo to get slot for his client.
Hankins just finished his junior year at Austin Peay State, and is going to be converted into a full-time catcher, it seems.
