Feliciano would be a no-risk flyer, and the latest addition in an increasingly-crowded bullpen competition.
Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

If all goes according to plan to start 2015, Soler won’t be a “prospect” for much longer. Man, he had a heck of a year in 2014.
The final major top Cubs prospect list of the rankings season, and it comes with some surprises.
