And just like that, Jordan Wicks is off to Tennessee!

The Cubs 2021 #1 draft pick was promoted from South Bend this afternoon.

Wicks has been working on getting a feel for his curve this year and how that curve along with a slider, a 4 seamer, and his plus-plus changeup, fit together. He’s been lights out the last three starts allowing just 1 run and his ERA for July is 0.00.

His last start, which I was there for in Peoria, saw him whiff 10 Chiefs on the night. Yeah, he’s ready!

No corresponding move has been made in South Bend.
