Chicago Cubs: Carrying it to the future
It is such a positive sign to see Medina produce at such a stable level so far this season. Understanding his ability to continue to provide at this level is a little unknown at this point because we have not seen him pitch more than 31 innings in a season.
He possesses a smooth, easy windup but works quickly. Medina carries a fastball, changeup, and slider in his bag, however, none of which are above-average. He does do a pretty good job with his control, and command of his pitches. The hope for Medina is that he can continue to develop each one in their own right working through the system.
The Cubs have many reliable relievers in the pipeline currently. Medina will need to grind to reach the next levels, however as someone who continues to work and is producing he could be the clubs next diamond in the rough.
