an 18yo CF'r and a flailing 24yo SP with huge upside and little realization of that upside.
can't complain too much. alcantara is a legit piece to snag, even if a near-MLB-ready guy would be more ideal.

Twitter says Alcantara and Vizcaino are coming back. #7 and #12 ranked prospects (fangraphs) in Yankees system. Cubs paying all of Rizzo salary.

"we want rizzo" chant going unmentioned by the booth.
c'mon guys. let's not pretend this isn't the trade deadline, the 9th inning, and neither rizzo/bryant seem to be grabbing a bat to pinch hit.

You won't see Ryan Tepera pitch to him as a Cub. He's heading to the White Sox for Bailey Horn

I get the sense they're trying to showcase Brothers, Morgan, and Ryan to see if they can get anything for any of them. If they stick around, might also be auditioning them to see if any are worth keeping on 40 man over the winter. My guess is only one survives. Morgan and Brothers have 1 year of control left, Ryan will have two or three, depending how long he stays up for the rest of the year.
