Maples goes 1 0 0 0 1 2 What is Maples' stuff like these days? Is he actually a "thing" again as a potentially useful MLB reliever? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk Yeah, he is. He's throwing a very heavy 94-95, with a very solid curve. He never did develop a third pitch, but he's got hi...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-26-17

That position player group looks pretty weak to me. You've got Eloy, and then the only ones currently on a trajectory to be an MLB starter are Candelario and Burks. It's palatable because Eloy is a superprospect and there's already a team full of under 25s at the MLB level, but the position player ...

Re: 2017 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread

Or that Schmidt insisted on 'first round money' and that's the lowest number that qualifies. Technically, last pick in the 1st round this year was #27. He got slot for the 30th pick which was the Cubs compensation pick, but if you go by 30 teams in the league, then the 30th pick slot fits that logic.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-24-17

All 6 of Hudson's strikeouts came on the CB which he was spotting well. No FB velo reports from the Loons broadcasters but they did mention (oddly) Hudson's CB velocity 3 times. 74, 75, 77. He very often started an at bat with a CB for a strike and again all 6 of his Ks were on the curve (5 swinging).

Four 18-year-olds and two 19-year-olds in the AZL Cubs line-up. That's a young team. Of course, the draftees are still to come.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-24-17

Consistently good performance is meaningful for a prospect. It seems to indicate sustainable performance as a player moves up and solid approach at the plate/ability to repeat mechanics on the mound. We saw this in the breakout year of Willson Contreras, and we are seeing it now with Charcer Burks. ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-24-17

Hudson goes 5 5 1 1 3 6, on 95 pitches.....5/1 GB/FB. I wonder if he's changing something? Over his last 4 starts, he's gone 19.1 innings, with 18 K's. Quite a difference from starting the year out with 16 K's in his first 39.1 innings. He might just be executing his pitches better. #development I ...

Connecting a few dots, although it could be coincidental obviously....Clarke Schmidt just signed with the Yankees for 2,184,300. Our EXACT slot at pick 30.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 6-23-17

Erling Moreno goes 6 5 3 0 3 2, on 84 pitches. Pretty efficient. With a 12/0 GB/FB ratio. I'm so curious what his velo is at right now. My guess is its his typical 90-94, but Arguello bringing up 98 earlier this spring, has kept me wondering.....At any rate, he's having a pretty solid start to his ...

Hatch's efficiency has been excellent his last 2 starts going 8 innings on 85 pitches and 7 innings on 84 tonight. He's induced 13 ground outs to 6 fly ball out and a combined 13 Ks over those same 2 starts. His FB was really good tonight. Sat 94-95 with tailing action and pretty good command. He's ...
