And some interesting notes in the comments from Arizona Phil:
The twelve DSL guys who got called up for AZ Instructs are: LHSP Carlos Garcia (spent 2022 season on Restricted List but he is one of the Cubs top DSL pitching prospects), RHSP Yoendris Gonzalez, RHSP Eligio Paredes, RHRP Wilber Rodriguez (polished closer prospect), RHSP Freilyn Silverio, C Yoanis Aleksandrov (signed out of Rumania last March), C-1B Carlos Ramos, C-3B Adan Sanchez, SS Alexis Hernandez (Cristian's little brother), 2B Jefferson Rojas, RF Josefrailin Alcantara, and OF Erbin Jaque (Jaque is supposedly the best defensive OF and the fastest player at DSL Cubs, and J. Alcantara has a plus-arm, plus speed, and plus-power).
With the exception of Aleksandrov, the DSL players invited to Instructs (plus RHP Kevin Valdez, who was called up to the ACL in late July) are considered to be the Cubs top dozen 2022 DSL prospects, and they will almost certainly be in the U. S. (EXST and ACL) next season.
Cubs 2022 draft picks RHP Cade Horton (1st round), LHP Jackson Ferris (2nd round), RHP Nazier Mule (4th round), RHP Brandon Birdsell (5th round), RHP Mason McGwire (8th round), LHP Branden Noriega (11th round), and RHP Luis Rujano (13th round) will be making their pro debuts at instructs.
Not attending instructs are RHP Connor Noland (9th round) and RHP Garrett Brown (18th round), who will report to Minor League Camp next March and will make their pro debuts in 2023, RHP (ex-C) Shane Marshall (14th round) will be converted to a full-time pitcher at EXST next sping, and RHP Will Frisch (6th round - March 2022 TJS)) and RHP JP Wheat (16th round) were placed on the ACL Cubs 60-day IL immediately after signing and will (hopefully) make their pro debuts sometime in 2023.
The 17 year olds at instructs are OF Josefrailin Alcantara, SS Alexis Hernandez, RHP Nazier Mule (draft pick), 2B Jefferson Rojas, and C-3B Adan Sanchez, and J. Rojas (turned 17 in April) and A. Sanchez (turned 17 in May) are THE youngest (not to mention the two best DSL Cubs position player prospects at instructs).
