Several non-prospects ate up spots as well. Ultimately wish they had given a few more Rivas types a shot there.

Only 60 spots in SB. Others benefited more from the time.

not phil, but i think everyone is holding off on his potential ceiling until he gains enough weight to not look like someone you want to buy a sandwich every time you see him.
big upside if his skills can strengthen as he builds his body.
too early for a solid comp, but i wouldn't feel uncomfortable throwing ian happ's name around (bit better arm than happ, though).

Me too. Thought it was weird he wasn't in South Bend at all.

I am very, very intrigued by Rivas. If the DH is unfortunately here to stay, he's a prime candidate for that and give Rizzo a day off 1B here and there. If no DH, hopefully he is a passable OF. Big believer in his hitting ability

Has it been announced whether there will be a DR winter league this winter?

That's as good of news as we'll get for awhile.

TIM: If nothing else, signing a boatload of IFA (35) in the 2019-20 ISP is a pretty good indicator that the Cubs fully intend to run two DSL teams into the forseeable future.

Of the 11 new guys, I'm leaning on Marino Sandy and Jerry Torres to be the most likely to reach full-season ball or get traded

OF Ian Miller (outrighted to the minors on 9/3) elected free-agency just prior to the 10/15 deadline, and the Cubs have signed RHRP Juan Gamez (who they released on 9/9) to a 2021 minor league contract.

Phil, were you watching from outside the stadium?

nice, we dont have to hear about the creation of "The AZPhil Rule" a week from now because you watched a game.
also, it's nice that c.morel and l.verdugo are getting work. hell, it's nice all those guys are getting work. it's rough that so many in the low minors have been hobbled by this 2020 stuff.

HAGSAG: Just to make it very clear, there were no violations of any MLB directives or rules & regulations pertaining to in-person fan attendance at AZIL games.
