"Just because it isn't official doesn't mean it didn't happen" 


Mena to MB

Encarnacion down to Mesa

McKeon to TN taking Strumpf's or Verdugo's spot.

AZ Phil, do you see anything keeping Howard from going to SB?

Saw a picture of Devers from yesterday and he appeared a little thicker. How did he look in his outing yesterday?

    I hope that Perlaza goes on to have a successful career.  On most Cubs teams prior to the current administration, he would have been one of their more highly ranked prospects.  As far as the others are concerned, one or more may well go on to be much better than expected, but unfortunately there is no way to tell which one at the present time.  You can't keep everyone.

    s.gray signs with the cards...3/75m

    Another one of the nine Cubs post-2023 Rule 9 minor league 6YFA has signed, as RHP Carlos Guzman (acquired from the Tigers for Zack McKinstry at the end of Spring Training) signed a 2024 minor league contract with the Mets. 


    So RHRP Yovanny Cruz (SD), C-INF P. J. Higgins (CIN), and now Carlos Guzman (NYM) have already signed 2024 minor league contracts with new MLB organizations, and OF Yonathan Perlaza is headed for Korea (Hanhwa Eagles).
