The Chicago Cubs have been dealing with many problems surrounding the bullpen. While there does not seem to be an utterly immediate fix, it does not hurt to look forward to the future of the club and the options which exist to one day turn the bullpen around.

International prospect signings for the Chicago Cubs are always exciting. For one, there is a plethora of unknown talent which teams capitalize on every season without having to break the bank. The second reason is due to the average age of free agents who choose to sign with major league clubs. That is currently the case for Class-A South Bend and relief pitcher Ivan Medina.

Medina is just 23 years old, however, has already been in the Cubs’ pipeline for five years, signing with the club way back in May of 2014 as an 18-year-old. He began his 2019 season at Short-Season Single-A Eugene but after a minute time there found himself promoted to Class-A South Bend. So far it is going great for the lanky right-hander as he is making himself known to fans.
