I'd be thrilled to get Meredith, although he had wanted 700k, I think. Doubt Ruth would take that either.

But, Karp and/or Vines seem like solid possibilities, if we did find our way into some extra cash today.

FWIW, both are marked in red at CCDT. Certainly not an official team designation with no announcements as of yet. 14th round prep SS Luis Vazquez would be the most likely recipient of any left over cash, but who knows...


Here's the official list of signings:

Unfortunately no major surprises. We did get Vazquez. Hopefully we can bring Rasmussen and/or Conlon

Eulmen's got a deceptive delivery and was a decent pitcher in college.

Players that stand out early:

Lange
Little
Estrada
Eulmen
Filiere
The two HS hitters, Vazquez the SS was one of the younger players in the draft

Inside here, it says Tampa wants their draft pick, based on how Rasmussen fulfilled his MRI stuff for the draft....He MAY be granted FA, but will go back to school otherwise.....

I hope it doesn't kill off Velázquez and Estrada as well. That's a big chunk of draft talent.


Velazquez has already signed so they made that work without Lange. Can't see Estrada coming without Lange's money, but I agree with KingCubsFan on taking the comp pick. With pitchers' health already so iffy, I'd rather start from scratch with a first rounder next year than take damaged goods this year just to try to sign Estrada.


Been busy all day and missed this. I 100% agree with walking away entirely if Lange's medicals weren't terrific. Estrada is a nice talent to add to the system, but as you said, he's not worth taking damaged goods 30th overall. Hell, many scouts think Lange is a reliever anyway and then you want to throw less than ideal medicals on top of it? That whole situation sucks.

So I didn't follow the late signings -- was kinda busy this past week. Huh, our 5th-rounder (N. Velazquez) got more than I thought he would initially. I believe the Twins signed Puerto Rican HS SS Ricardo De la Torre for $550K, and he was much more highly rated than Velazquez.

Anyway, so something came up during the physical for RHP - A. Lange, but does anyone know what it is specifically? I wonder if it's just a bone spur or very slight wear-and-tear. If the concern has anything to do with the AC joint or Rotator Cuff or just the shoulder in general I wish the Cubs just moved on and recoup the pick for next year. Trying to find out what it was, but I can't find anything...

Not that you can take anything from it, but Theo called it a "procedural" issue. Considering the amount they gave him, my guess is whatever it was, it wasn't too significant. I think they had the ability to sign Velázquez and Estrada, without inking him.(could be wrong) And if that's the case, my guess is they'd have definitely passed on Lange, if it was important. May have anyway.

Any Cubs buzz attached to him?

Hearing that newly declared free agent, A&M signee Jack Conlon, is likely to sign in the next couple of days. Not expected in CS.

I'm sure if the Cubs like him, they won't mind spending this type of money, even if it's an overpay. It's a chance to acquire oversloted draft talent like you used to be able to two CBAs ago:

FYI, he chose to go to Texas A&M after verbally agreeing with the Giants. Very weird situation.
