Cubs' Dylan Cease: On DL with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cease (ankle sprain) is on the 7-day DL with Low-A South Bend, but is healing more quickly than anticipated and is not expected to miss much time, Emily Waldon of 2080Baseball.com reports.

The hard-throwing righty is tied for second in the Midwest League with 54 strikeouts in 34 innings. Most importantly, his 12.9 percent walk rate is a career best mark, so it is encouraging to see his control is improving, even if the improvements are gradual.

Cubs' Dylan Cease: Flashing strikeout potential at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cease, 21, has a 1.00 ERA and 15:5 K:BB through nine innings for Low-A South Bend.

Cubs' Dylan Cease: Working on secondary pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cease said he wants to work on his changeup and breaking ball this season, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cease can touch 100 mph on the radar gun, but the development of reliable secondary pitches will be key in his rise through the minors. "I would like to see development in my changeup this year," Cease said. "I feel very good with my breaking ball right now. So with that one, it will be more of throwing one for a strike and then bounce it when I want to because I feel confident enough with the spin and depth. With the changeup, I'm still using that in the games and getting that feel." The 21-year-old is likely to begin the 2017 season with Low-A South Bend.
