Hopefully Hatch's last start was a sign of him improving after a rough month or so. I remember him having a really ugly start to 2017 as well, before turning it on.

Adbert had a 1-2-3 first but got roughed up in the second for 4 runs on 2 2-run home runs.

Not a great 3rd inning so far, either. Bases juiced after 2 line drive singles and a walk. Zero Ks.

Got out of that jam unscathed but he starts the 4th with a double.

At this point, it’s got to be an upset if it isn’t Adbert:

Make him a reliever and see if his stuff picks up. I don't really care for Hatch and I was disappointed when the Cubs selected him in the 3rd round. That 2016 draft class doesn't look great right now. I wanted Zac Gallen who went two picks later to the Cardinals.

Outside of the 1st round picks from 2012-15 (and Cease), most of their draft picks have been disappointing. It’s one of the few knocks I have on this FO.

Can like, one single prospect that's not a supersub/setup man ceiling get hot for 6 weeks until there are shiny new draft picks to ogle? This is getting depressing.

In a system where zero pitching prospects are stepping up, Hatch needs to be given every opportunity to stick. He was really good last year in High A after the first month. Yesterday was another ugly start though. Tough to get hung up on a 3rd round pick when the Cubs had a tiny draft pool that year. As with seemingly every arm drafted by this FO, he looks like he can certainly be a reliever. Can't be too unhappy with that outcome from that draft.

I guess it comes down to how you specifically define "most" and "disappointing" in that sentence, but most of every team's draft picks outside of the 1st round are disappointing.
