Candelario has hit .266/.361/.507 with 12 homers in 81 games with Triple-A Iowa this season. Though he is ranked by MLB.com as the top prospect in the Cubs’ system (with Jimenez and Cease gone) and the no. 92 prospect in all of baseball, Baseball America is a bit less impressed, ranking him ninth among Chicago’s prospects.
Paredes, an 18-year-old shortstop, was signed out of Mexico for $800k by the Cubs in 2015. He has hit .261/.341/.399 with seven homers in 91 games for Single-A South Bend so far this year, coming in as BA’s no. 5 prospect in the system and tenth according to MLB.com.
Candelario and Paredes will both shoot toward the top of the Tigers’ farm system, joining no. 12 prospect Dawel Lugo and no. 21 prospect Sergio Alcantara, who were sent over in the J.D. Martinez deal with Arizona. Detroit may have more moves in store, with Justin Verlander, Ian Kinsler and Jose Iglesias all on the rumor mill with 16 hours before the deadline.

I think Wholesale Jerseys Paypal that genre is dead, save for a couple little tweaks here and there.
