Palencia's having his best start of the season, stacking a couple 5 inning starts in a row too. Pinango got another start in CF with PCA out

It's going to be such a shame if he can't stay a SP. The combination of not only velocity but ability to hold it deep into starts is so incredibly rare

It does feel good that the Cubs have enough huge velo SP prospects that while odds are against each individually in aggregate they're actually pretty good for us netting one as a legit MLB starter

What do we know about Slaughter as a defender? BBRef says he played 3B and 1B at LSU w/ an 80/20 split his last year after only playing 1B as a freshman, though weirdly our draft threads show places listing him as an SS. As a pro it almost seems like he's moved upwards on the spectrum. Pre-pandemic he had a 50/50 split between 3B and 1B, and post-pandemic he's started playing some 2B to the point where it's about 60/20/20 3B/1B/2B this year. He's been error prone as a 3B but not on the right side of the IF yet in more limited time. If he could be at least playable at 3B or 2B that would go a long way.
