Cubs Prospect Daniel Vogelbach: A Good, Surprising Start

Happy Theo Day, everyone! It appears the Theo deal is all but announced, meaning the Cubs are ready to move forward with life and such.

Meanwhile, I took some time to peruse some minor league stats today, and whatayaknow I found something positive! Down in the rookie league, my man Daniel Vogelbach — the Chicago Cubs 2nd round draft pick this year, and my personal favorite Cubs pick of the draft — played in only 6 games this year (not uncommon for recent draft picks to squeeze a few games in before the season's end).

He put up an impressive .292/.370/.542 slash to go with his 1 homer, but what is most shocking is that this monster of a man:



Stole a freakin' base.

Go figure.
