Almost more excited for Davis' season than the Cubs' season.

This was pretty interesting in AZPhil's update:

Several players & coaches from the Lotte Giants (KBO) are attending Instructs as guests of the Cubs, but it's possible that one or more of the Korean players could end up being acquired by the Cubs at some point. (Ex-Cubs minor league OF, coach, and scout Min-Kyu Sung was hired as GM of the Giants last September).


The Giants were the worst team in the KBO last year but have this guy for The Future:

Most impressive hitters at Cubs Winter Intructs so far are Brennen Davis and Christopher Morel (hard contact combined with HR power), Alfonso Rivas, Bryce Windham, and Edmond Americaan (hard contact line-drives sprayed foul line to foul line), and Kevonte Mitchell and Wladimir Galindo (high-angle lift HR power).

Kind of crazy that Mitchell and Galindo are still around, and that it was 5-6 years since adding them. Galindo has been touted as a power guy for some time; he's yet to hit 10 HR in a season. A little note in a CubReporter observation doesn't mean much, for sure. But a little discouraging when outstanding guys are journeyman A-ballers.
