The Chicago Cubs made a very good selection last night in Jordan Wicks out of Kansas State. He is a left-handed pitcher that has a plus command which is something that the Cubs need to build on. They have been lousy at developing pitching over their last 10 years and that caused their potential dynasty to turn into a one-off. Now, they will begin working on Wicks and getting him to the level we all know he can get to.
The Chicago Cubs need to make sure that Jordan Wicks has everything he needs to succeed.
Wicks is known out of college for one special feature. He so clearly has the best changeup in the entire draft class. It is a great pitch to be the best at for a lot of reasons. For one, he doesn’t have to develop it as much as he does his fastball and breaking pitch. Most pitchers have those two a little more ready and have the changeup to work on.
