Cubs claim RHP Zach Putnam from Rockies

Postby ctcf » Fri Nov 02, 2012 1:27 pm

Chicago Cubs @Cubs
#Cubs claimed RHP Zach Putnam off waivers from #Rockies. Putnam is 19-12 w/ 26 SV, 3.90 ERA, 270 K & 94 BB over 295.2 IP in 171 MiLB games.

Pen guy. Useful. "@bleed_cub_blue: @keithlaw thoughts on the Putnam kid the @Cubs just claimed??"


From the Bleachernation article:

Putnam was the prospect the Rockies landed when they dealt Kevin Slowey (who was a non-tender candidate at the time, if I remember correctly) to the Indians before the 2012 season. Back in 2011, Putnam was a top 20 prospect for the Indians, and was considered a top 10 prospect for the Rockies this year, before falling back into the 15 to 20 range after a mediocre season.

Good K rate, good control, very good HR rate, good pedigree for a reliever, age 25, 6 potential years of team control. Seems like a very nice pickup for a waiver claim.

I like the churn on the back end of our 40 man. It's minor stuff, but little moves like this are worth making.
