Cubs 2019-20 International Signing Period (J-2 Players)

10/30 UPDATE:

The Cubs officially signed two more 2019-20 J-2 IFA:

Gabriel Disla, OF 
R/R, 5'11 165, Age 18 
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Both were "Signed for Future Service" (signed 2020 contract) and were assigned to DSL Cubs #1.

I invite you to share your thoughts on the hiring, the Astros-Nats World Series, and other late October baseball goings-on as you see fit.
