White Sox prospect Dylan Cease has been scratched from a scheduled playoff appearance for Low-A Kannapolis.
Cease has some minor shoulder fatigue and the White Sox want to be cautious. The young right-hander is still expected to participate in instructional league action this fall. Acquired from the Cubs in mid-July as part of the Jose Quintana trade, Cease boasts a 2.89 ERA and 217 strikeouts through 162 career minor league innings. Tue, Sep 5, 2017 05:44:00 PM

White Sox prospect Dylan Cease gave up five runs in under an innings of work for Low-A Kannapolis.

Only three of the runs were earned, but Cease did give up four hits and two walks in those 2/3 of an inning. Cease has stuff that would make big-league pitchers jealous, and command that makes big-league hitters feel remorse. Unless the command makes a big jump forward, he's going to pitch in relief. He's young/talented enough for that to happen, but it's not a lock.

White Sox prospect Dylan Cease struck out seven batters over four innings for Low-A Kannapolis.

In Cease's two starts with the Intimidators, he's shown why so many are high on him, and why there are some reservations. He's struck out 11 in just under 10 innings, but he's always walked four. There's no questioning Cease's stuff, but the command leaves a lot to be desired. The upside is a No.2 starter, but there's at least a chance he's pitching in relief.

White Sox acquired RHP Dylan Cease, OF Eloy Jiménez, 1B Matt Rose, and INF Bryant Flete from the Cubs for LHP Jose Quintana

Cease, the Cubs' No. 2 prospect according to Baseball America, boasts a 3.29 ERA and 165/67 K/BB ratio over 120 1/3 career minor league innings. He had registered a 2.79 ERA and 74/26 K/BB ratio through 51 2/3 innings (13 starts) this season for Low-A South Bend. The 21-year-old right-hander was a sixth-round pick in 2014 out of a Georgia high school.

Cubs prospect Dylan Cease didn't allow a run in his four innings of work for Low-A South Bend on Sunday.

Cease didn't allow a hit in those four innings, and he walked just two while striking out five. The Cubs are takings things very slowly with Cease, but he's missing bats at an elite level (65 strikeouts in 42 1/3 innings) and throwing enough strikes to make his stuff relevant. There's still a very good chance he ends up pitching in relief, but there's at least a chance he ends up a starter, and a very good one at that.

Cubs pitching prospect threw six no-hit innings on Wednesday for Low-A South Bend.

Cease did walk three, but he struck out seven on top with allowing zero hits. He touches triple-digits with his fastball, and he compliments that heater with an excellent curveball. Few right-handers can match Cease's upside, and while there's volatility because of the so-so command, he could still be fantasy relevant if the Cubs moved him to the bullpen. He's definitely a name to follow.
