Cubs

David Ross has been labeled as Jon Lester's personal catcher and the numbers show why the Cubs made a nice move in signing the veteran backstop.
Kris Bryant, Addison Russell and Jorge Soler received some high praise from MLB.com columnist Bernie Pleskoff - a former scout - in his latest prospect rankings.
The Cubs have been extremely active on the waiver wire over the last week, claiming a player Tuesday and losing two other players to the Orioles and Brewers.
