Thanks for the roster! When do the extended spring training games begin?

RAISIN: I updated the Cubs EXST roster today because four more pitchers arrived from the Dominican Academy, so you might want to check the URL link because it has been changed.  

Awesome. Thank you!

Also the Cubs will be fielding only one ACL team this season. The only MLB organizations fielding two ACL teams are KC, MIL,and SF. And the AZL is now known as the ACL (Arizona Complex League). 

There will be no active list roster limit for ACL teams, as long as the organization's aggregate minor league Domestic Reserve List does not exceed 180. 

baseball got more lists than banned substances these days. 


Not wise. Kids are going to try and tear up the ACL.

AZL was fine.

    a lot of people were all-in on it being a 2022 thing, but given how MLB has held the DH over the player's heads like it's some kind of extremely valuable chip worth more than the players seem to think it's worth...who knows...

    any estimates on the chances of the DH in the NL anytime soon?

    k.schwarber is hella good at post-season baseball.

    e.castillo and t.payne off the 40man in 100% totally expected moves.

    both are/were catcher organizational depth.

    for those keeping track of the heating-up Mets head of baseball operations search, theo has already ruled himself out.

    mets want(ed) some heavy hitters (including b.beane and d.stearns), but none of them are on board...well, MIL took stearns off the board before he could chime in because he has a year left on his contract.

    Something to keep in mind about clearing MLB 40-man roster slots for players eligible for selection in this year's Rule 5 Draft is that you can't non-tender players to create 40-man roster space for Rule 5 Draft eligibles. That's because players can only be non-tendered on 12/2, and the pre-Rule 5 Draft roster filing deadline is 11/19 (almost two weeks - PRIOR TO -the contract tender date). NOTE: Normally the roster filing deadline is 11/20, but it's moved up to 11/19 this year because 11/20 falls on a Saturday in 2021

    BRADSBEARD: Just one game, some BP, infield practice, and baserunning drills. So not much to glean from that so far.

    minor league baseball has to provide housing for minor leaguers starting 2022 (paid for by MLB parent clubs).  this is HUGE news and will make it possible for guys to stick around longer without having to quit the game just to earn a basic living.  for minor league players working in expensive housing markets this is a life saver.

    activist players from the OAK and LAA minor league teams as well as minor league player labor advocacy organizations were a huge part of making this happen.  good work.

    Did you have any occasion to observe Pedro Ramirez? Not sure if he got into any games or not (now that I think of it, you wrote up at least one game he played in).

    azbobbop: Certainly LHSPs Drew Gray and Luke Little have emerged as legit significant high-end SP prospects. RHSP Luis Devers has probably displaced Koen Moreno as the top "pitchability" SP prospect in the lower levels of the Cubs system. Tyler Schlaffer (another "pitchability" guy) also had an impressive Instructs, although Devers is a better SP prospect because he has a solid three-pitch mix and knows how to use it, while Schlaffer has just the 92-94 FB & CV (although both are solid offerngs) and isn't as polished as Devers is.

    This is the first time I have heard about the four month program in November. 


  • azbobbop 3 days 4 hours ago (view)

    Phil, now that instructional scare finished, which players impressed you the most and who are disappointments.


  • tim815 3 days 7 hours ago (view)

    Cool. Should help his trade value if the bat plays.


  • Arizona Phil 3 days 9 hours ago (view)

    TIM: Peter Matt looks very comfortable at 3B. He is a classic "four-corner" guy (1B-3B-LF-RF).

    KKvG: I strongly suspect Koen Moreno's outing was more about getting out on the mound and throwing in a game than anything. He did get several swings & misses from his CH (which is a plus-pitch), and he uses his low 90's FB to set-up the CH.

    I didn't see any breaking balls, although it's possible I might have mistaken a CH for one.

    Koen Moreno is what scouts call a "pitchability" guy. Nothing wrong with that, BTW. MLB starting rotations are full of pitchers like that.
