  • Cubs' Cade Horton: Smooth sailing for Smokies

    Horton has a 1.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 13 innings through three starts for Double-A Tennessee.

    Horton, the No. 7 overall pick in last year's draft, has logged four starts at Single-A, 11 starts at High-A and three starts at Double-A thus far in his first full pro season. The quality of his stuff and command is not in question, but it's nonetheless encouraging to see him not skip a beat after an Aug. 1 promotion to Double-A. He is on track to spend a good chunk of the 2024 season in the big-league rotation, health permitting.

  • Cubs' Cade Horton: Missing bats at High-A

    Horton has a 3.89 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 28.7 K-BB% in nine starts (39.1 innings) for High-A South Bend.

    The No. 7 overall pick in last year's draft, Horton made his first four pro starts at Single-A before quickly getting the bump to High-A in early May. With a slew of promotions and graduations, Horton has a case as one of the top five pitching prospects left in the minors. He has given up five or more earned runs in two of his nine starts at High-A, but he had a dominant seven-start run from May 17 through June 29, logging a 1.76 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 49 strikeouts in 30.2 innings. Given his age (turns 22 in August) and pedigree, Horton should soon get a promotion to Double-A Tennessee.

  • Cubs' Cade Horton: Bumped to High-A

    Horton will make his High-A debut Wednesday after logging a 1.26 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 14.1 innings across four starts for Single-A Myrtle Beach.

    The No. 7 overall pick in last year's draft, Horton has one of the best sliders in the minors and was overmatching Single-A hitters in his pro debut. He could feasibly climb beyond High-A this season if he stays healthy, but injuries limited him to 53.2 innings at Oklahoma, so his workload will be monitored.
