Cubs 2024 Rule 5 Draft and Minor League Free-Agent Watch List

5/21 UPDATE:

The Cubs signed free-agent RHP Jackson Tetreault to a minor league contract.

Because he has been outrighted previously in his career, Tetreault has the right to elect free-agency (immediately or deferred) if he is selected to the MLB 40-man roster and then is outrighted back to the minors at some point in 2024.

 

Cubs @ St. Louis: Series Thread (Games 52-54)

The Cubs begin the holiday weekend with three games in St. Louis. They've gotten Swanson and Hoerner back to support on defense, and starting pitching has remained strong. They need several bats to wake up in order to claw out more wins. They enter the series 27-24, now with the Cardinals only three games behind them and the Brewers two full games ahead of them. See below for daily matchups such as they stand. 

 

Cubs vs. Atlanta: Series Thread (Games 49-51)

The Cubs managed one win in the four game series against Pittsburgh. They come into this series against Atlanta with a record of 26-22, and 1.5 games behind the Brewers. The Cubs activated Dansby Swanson and are expecting Nico Hoerner to return imminently, which ought to boost both the offense and defense. See below for matchups on three-game rematch series as Atlanta now visits Wrigley. 

Cubs vs. Pirates: Series Thread (Games 45-48)

If you enjoyed the last two series against the Pirates and Atlanta, I have good news--now you can enjoy them at home. The Cubs won the final game in Atlanta to save themselves from a sweep and return to Wrigley 25-19. They'll see the Pirates for four games before a day off on Monday. See below for daily matchups. 

 

Cubs @ Pirates: Series Thread (Games 39-41)

The Cubs enjoyed a day off before beginning a six-game road trip against Pittsburgh and Atlanta. The road trip will be followed by a six-game homestand against the same opponents. So, there will be plenty of opportunity to get familiar. The Cubs will likely even get their first two looks at Pirates phenom Paul Skenes as he debuts in the Saturday away game and would be due again in the home series. The 22-16 Cubs lost two of three to the Padres and fell to a half game behind the Brewers with the day off.

    Pinella seems to like those jerseys. I see pizza promos too. In the UK, a flushing sound could be heard.

    counsell re: shota rest...

    “This is a proactive move,” Counsell said prior to Saturday’s game. “And it’s really about the innings during the course of the season. We’re tracking towards 170ish innings, and just trying to know that that’s the number. And know that there are very few spots in the schedule where you have a chance to maybe use the schedule to your advantage. This was one of them.”

    azphil posted pre-season that finding him time to rest and limiting innings would probably be a thing.

    if the cubs lose even a single game to a team wearing "The Lou" jerseys they don't deserve the playoffs.

    Thanks Phil!

    Appreciate the insight Phil, I’ve been wondering what’s going on with those dumpster dive pitcher pick ups, haven’t seen them in AAA

  • Arizona Phil (view)

    I expect both Teheran and Straily to get released very soon, with McGowin getting moved up to AAA. There also is the matter of Smyly getting reinstated from the IL today or tomorrow, so that means Cuas or Hodge will go back to Iowa. Palencia should be nearing the end of his rehab (he threw in a game last night) and so he might be reinstated on Sunday or Monday, and K. Thompson was on the IL only because of an illness and so he could get reinstated on Monday (when his 15 days are up) without even needing a rehab assignment. It's also possible that Palencia and/or K. Thompson will be optioned to AAA when they are reinstated.

    Also, just as a reminder, the Arizona Complex League (ACL) regular season ends on Wednesday 7/25, ACL playoffs start on Friday 7/27, and the AZ Instructional League begins on Thursday 8/1 and will run for eight weeks (August through September). 

    As things stand right now, the AZ Instructional League will play an "unofficial" 25-game schedule, so it is expected that most of the Cubs 2024 draft picks will make their pro debut in AZ Instructs games, and then some of them could get moved up to a full season squad during the course of Instructs. 

    Because AZ Instructs begins three weeks prior to the conclusion of the DSL regular season, it is very unlikely that any of the Cubs DSL players who are not called up during the course of the ACL regular season will be invited to AZ Instructs. So (for example) expect SS Fernando Cruz to make his stateside debut in 2025.

    For anyone who might be interested, the Dominican Summer League (DSL) season begins on Monday 6/3. DSL regular season ends on 8/20 and playoffs start on 8/22. The Cubs will once again be running two DSL squads (Blue and Red).
