This doesn't really deserve its own thread; from MLBTR:

The Mariners have also inked former Cubs farmhand John Andreoli to a minor league pact, Johns tweets, adding that the 27-year-old outfielder hit 14 homers for Triple-A Iowa last season to go along with a .244/.348/.435 slash line. Andreoli was the Cubs’ 17th-round selection in the 2011 draft. He’s walked at least 12% of the time in each of his three seasons with the Iowa Cubs, though his strikeout rate has risen noticeably in each of those seasons. Andreoli has yet to reach the MLB level.

I saw that. Very happy. Kiley really did a great job with his lists and databases before joining the Braves.

Marco Hernandez came in at 10 on BA's top 10 list for Boston. That's another system that's really fallen off.

Dombrowski strikes again. He'll bloat your team with bad contracts and drain the farm.

Padres LHP Joey Lucchesi is the pitching prospect I was hoping Kellogg would turn out into.

Lange starting in South Bend would be disappointing.

I don't mind it too much. As long as he doesn't spend too much time down there. Tell him to shelve his CB for a little bit and work on his other pitches/FB command. That CB (when it's working) will be too much for low-A hitters to handle.

Wow, Lange’s delivery in 2017 looks so different (and IMO much better) from the 2016 one above:

Image

The 2017 has some Carlos Carrasco to it. The 2016 version looks like a reliever or a BOR starter with a tendency to leave the fastball up. He definitely got his lower body work in between 2016 and 2017, outright better posture and tempo.
