Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects
A hyped prospect with so-so numbers and an unhyped prospect with good numbers?
The details are fuzzy, but it sounds like a very sad story.
The 36-year-old Korean reliever gets a two-year, split minor league deal.
That figure looks to drop further in 2013, depending on how things play out.
The 28-year-old righty was a very good reliever with the Indians from 2007 to 2010.
A couple of surprise prospects in 2012, each for very different reasons.
The names are all set for next year – another season in which the minor leagues will be as important to the future of the organization as the big league club.
One of the Cubs’ better infield prospects (about whom you’ve heard little), and a pitching prospect (about whom you’ve heard little).
The 27-year-old righty will fight for a spot in the bullpen.
The Rule 5 Draft was probably a net loss for the Cubs, but hopefully it won’t be by the time next season is over. Still, some of the losses sting.
There wasn’t a lot of action around baseball, but it’s coming. Also, Fujikawa is coming. And big changes to TV deals could be coming.
Big, hard-throwing reliever with upside. But, he’s also had two elbow surgeries in the last three years.
