(Steve from PHI)
|Ha. I didn't see quite everyone, but Cease is going to be a really fun guy to follow. There's not a prayer that his talent was synonymous with the sixth round--his arm injury at the time had something to do with it.
Additionally, I just want to use Cease as an example of the Cubs masterful job in the 2014 draft. They shocked everyone with Schwarber at #4--firmly (and rightfully) knowing how he could hit, position be damned. That alone was good, but what's more: they took the money saved from Schwarber--as well as Maryland's Jake Stinnett (who was a top SR sign in that draft, I believe) and Mark Zangunis from Virginia Tech (though I'm not sure how much of a haircut Zangunis took) to pool together money for Carson Sands, Justin Steele, and Dylan Cease. That's pwn-age right there.
I have seen Cease as a HS junior, a HS senior, and as a professional as well. The armstrength is for real, as we all know. As a result of that arm-speed, the spin is also for real. It's two plus pitches, definitely a guy who is capable of generating loads of strikeouts.
I won't put him in the bullpen absolutely, especially not right now, and especially because some aspects of his delivery I think aren't massively effort-filled. However, mechanically, there isn't a ton of cohesion between his upper and lower halves; he's never been much of a natural strike-thrower. He'll be really fascinating to monitor. Can't teach this type of raw stuff. (Adam McInturff)

(Matt from CHI)
|There are plenty of pitchers who have the pitches, and thus potential, to reach that kind of ceiling (like Corey Black). Carson Sands, Justin Steele, and Jake Stinnett all could get there, although the safe bet is that none of them will. (Brendan Gawlowski)|

(RotoLando from Cloud City)
|Man, Sands isn't in the conversation yet for me. I'd roll with Stinnett and wait until Sands can legally drink. (Mauricio Rubio)|

(Nathan from Nevada )
|Big fan of Jake Stinnett. I believe he can stick as a SP, but will be a good RP if not. Plus FB and flashed the SL and CH when I saw him at UMD. CH needs work but he does what every evaluator looks for; replicates the arm speed and shows some feel. (Tucker Blair)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
