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


From the Bleachernation article:

Quote:
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.

you to have a certain # of arms and he sounds like a decent arm. Sounds like the type of asset Theo is looking for.

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