    Born: Nov. 7, 1998. B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-1. Wt.: 190. Signed: Mexico, 2015. Signed by: Segio Hernandez/Louie Eljaua.

    Background: The Cubs have actively and aggressively scouted Mexico in recent years, with Albertos receiving the largest bonus among a group of signees that includes shortstop Isaac Paredes. He officially signed for $1.5 million as part of a package of players the Cubs signed from Tijuana of the Mexican League. He made his pro debut in June 2016 with four electric innings, wowing club officials, but he missed the rest of the season with tightness in his forearm.

    Scouting Report: Albertos was well-regarded as a prospect as an amateur, but his extended spring training performance had the Cubs excited. His fastball, generally in the 92-94 mph range earlier, jumped to 94-96 and touched 98 for the duration of his debut start. Moreover, he’s shown signs of true fastball command when healthy, throwing strikes with his heater to both sides of the plate. Albertos’ changeup flashes well above-average, overmatching Rookie-level hitters and projecting as a potential 70-grade pitch on the 20-80 scouting scale. His breaking ball was considered ahead of his changeup before he signed, and he’s shown the ability to spin a slider.
    The Future: The Cubs handled Albertos extremely carefully all summer and fall, hoping he can gain strength to handle his extreme arm speed and fastball velocity. He’s set for extended spring training and either a repeat of the AZL or potentially short-season Eugene.

    Come all without, come all within', You'll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn.

    I pumped him up through the draft I had to get one piece somewhere (had him in FC but gave up my team)

    When he made his previous pick, SirBjay said "this may be my last pick", not sure whether or not he confirmed that though.

    Yeah "may" is not definitive.

    Cyborg: what's the ruling on drafting players who have never played above AAA, but lost their green flag when added to the 40-man? Can we force them on to people's farm if requested?

    Yeah I would just force them to the farm and they are fair game.

    They both are good value at this point. I was likely going to take Quinn with my next pick, could have been my replacement for Hunter Pence in a couple years.

    I had 2 players (Mexicans) ahead of Heath but Z3r0s sniped him in the DDL. I had to have a piece somewhere.
