2014 Draft Signings
Cubs have $8,352,200 in draft pool money (and if they don't mind paying a a 75% tax on $417,600, they can go up to $8,769,810).
Players in bold have allegedly signed. Anyone after the 10th round signed for over $100K counts against their draft money as well.
If the player has yet to sign or there's no media report on the bonus, the third column is the recommened slot money.
Currently the Cubs have paid $8,754,000 out and have $15,810 of their draft pool money left before having to worry about losing draft picks.

2014 7th round draft pick RHP James Norwood (Saint Louis U.) worked a dominating 9th for AZL Cubs, pitching with swagger (unlike pro debut last week, when he looked uncomfortable on the mound) and pumping one 94-95 MPH fastball with heavy sink & run after another. Unhittable tonight.
Kyuji Fujikawa with another rehab outing for AZL Cubs (second in four days after being shut-down for a month following conclusion of EXST), a 1-2-3 inning (9 pitches - 7 strikes). Fastball velocity was consistent (90-91 MPH on all six fastballs thrown), plus three outstanding hard-splitters (one used to chase the strikeout on first hitter faced). After the first batter struck out (swinging) on a 1-2 pitch, second man popped out on a bunt, and the third hitter flied out to short-center. Very fast inning.
Well I can tell you that based on some of Alcantara's swings that he could use a large helping of Captain Happy's patented big league rest. Let's bring him up and get his ass on the pine for a few months - he'll be fine in no time at all.
