On Wheat, I read a Cubs-specific article saying they don't expect to sign all 20 draftees, but will probably get at least 18.Leaves Parada and Wheat stay tuned…..
I hope he makes it to campus but understand it is not likely. I also read that he is 19 so would be eligible early if he comes to school.On Wheat, I read a Cubs-specific article saying they don't expect to sign all 20 draftees, but will probably get at least 18.
Right now, they have only signed 2 of the 11-20 round picks, neither for over 125K. They haven't saved a lot from the first 10 rounds so far and still have to sign their 2 and 4 picks. Probably will be overslot for them.
All that to say, I doubt they will have a lot to give over 125K for a high school pitcher in round 16 but that may be all he's looking for. However, interesting he hasn't signed yet while 2 others in that draft range have signed for that or close to it.
When you’re right. You’re right. And you guys were right.

Thought he would take a step forward and be the Friday night starter. This is a loss no doubt but obviously money wasn’t the motivator here. Just my opinion, but i think the desire to “get started” and some developmental regression were also part of the decision making process. Nonetheless he’s a great kid wish him nothing but success.He must really want to get started.
