A big righthander in the Carlos Zambrano mold, the amusingly-named Trey McNutt cracked three levels of the minors in 2010, then spent all of 2011 quietly racking up starts in AA Tennessee. McNutt combines an overpowering fastball with a disorienting power curve. While a third pitch would be nice to have in his back pocket, those two existing choices are both serious plus offerings, so the only real thing he's wanting for is a 'show me' selection or two. Chicago covets McNutt highly: when Tampa Bay asked for nominal top prospect Chris Archer or McNutt in the trade for Matt Garza, the Cubs didn't hesitate, and sent Archer packing immediately. McNutt will spend most or all of 2013 in the AA Tennessee rotation once again, but if he continues to dominate hitters, it's not impossible he will end the season in the Wrigley rotation.
