Cubs shutout of BA NWL rankings

+

Not the most surprising thing, as Boise wasn't exactly prospect laden this year. The most intriguing guy who got a solid number of AB's there is probably Arismendy Alcantara, who AzPhil over at TCR recently said was a shortstop who had a plus arm, plus range, and some pop potential. Micah Gibbs offensive struggles were going to hurt him in prospect rankings. If he finds some offense, he's at least got a shot to be a backup backstop. Pin-Chieh Chen and Kyung-Min Na are speedy up the middle guys, but both have offensive work to do to move up. Eliot Soto has offensive issues, while Pierre LePage's ceiling is limited. On the pitching side, a lot of semi-intriguing arms there, like Brent Ebinger and Cam Greathouse, although both project more as end of the rotation lefties if they develop, otherwise they may be pen arms. Aaron Kurcz is being stretched out at instructs, and does have a mid-90's fastball to go with a good slider. Juan Yasser Serrano was a hyped Cuban signing, but IMO, was rather disappointing since coming over. Dallas Beeler has gotten a lot of hype this fall as a guy who has potential to get to the mid-90's while offering a solid 3 pitch arsenal. Guys like Fitzgerald and Jokisch deserve some more time. A personal sleeper is Matt Loosen, although his ceiling is limited. Larry Suarez was the big LA signing a couple moons ago, but hasn't panned out. Jordan Latham had a DUI and missed last year, and was disappointing this year. If there was a surprise, it was that Austin Kirk didn't make it. Not sure what to make of that.
