Hultzen finally makes it; guy who looks at cameras DFA'd

It has been a long and winding road for former first-round draft pick Danny Hultzen, but the path will finally pass through the majors. The Cubs southpaw has received his first MLB promotion, according to Brett Taylor of Bleacher Nation (via Twitter). Hultzen, 29, was the second overall pick of the...

Re: Minor League Park Roadtrip - Prospects to Watch!

I live in Philly and have been to a few Ironpigs and Reading Phillies games the last couple years. They have some decent prospects in that system. Not sure if Bohm will be in Lehigh Valley by then but at the moment some major leaguers are on the roster in Nick Williams, Maikel Franco, Logan Morrison...

Re: Minor League Musings

Not sure where to put this but The Cubs have signed right-hander Chih-Wei Hu to a minor league contract, according to Roster Roundup. Hu had been pitching in the Indians’ farm system before being released from that minors deal in late July. After posting a 3.52 ERA, 8.2 K/9, and 3.00 K/BB rate over ...

Re: Breakdown of Cubs Bullpen Options for 2020

I really do think Wick's spot next year is his to lose at this point. He's looked great. I've been a big fan of Mills and would like to see him enter ST with a shot at a role too. Kimbrel Wick Ryan Chatwood Mills Phelps with: Wieck, Mekkes, Maples, Norwood, Underwood, Clifton, Rea, Brooks, Steele as...

Re: Minor League Musings

We have a decent amount of middle relief option in Iowa between Underwood, Mills, Mekkes, Maples, Brooks, etc. I wonder how many get a look for a role next year with Kintzler, Cishek, Strop contracts all up.

Also pointing out we're on page 69.

Oscar de la Cruz cleared waivers. We get to keep him for now. I'd imagine he's Rule 5 eligible.

Re: Trade targets 2019

Yeah it's weird his defensive numbers declined so sharply but he'd be a solid get for September (no offense Taylor Davis). Of course we won't be the only ones thinking that.

Re: Greinke to Astros

Fascinating moves by the DIamondbacks. They give up Greinke and Jasrado Chisholm, a personal favorite that had stalled badly this year, and add a good arm in Zac Gallen, plus some interesting prospects. Honestly, I'm floored the Marlins gave up Gallen for just Jasrado Chisholm, considering the year...

Not thrilled about giving up those guys but Lange hasn't shown anything and Richan is a few years away. Gotta do it.

Re: Maldonado to Astros for Tony Kemp

Ok.

He's not a bad hitter and can play multiple positions and is under team control awhile. I'd argue he's more valuable than Maldonado. I'm fine with it. Hopefully this means the end of descalso.

Re: They kept saying "Dave Phelps, Dave Phelps"

Brian wrote:There's the Kintzler level pitcher I called yesterday.

Basically the same trade. Got an unexciting middle reliever with a cheap option for the following year in exchange for a minor leaguer with a low ceiling/high floor. He'll likely replace Kintzler in next year's pen.

We acquired David Phelps today for Tom Hatch. I like Hatch a lot, hoping for the best for him.

Phelps on the other hand is a guy I wanted a few years ago. Stuff seems to be playing well returning from TJS.
