Chiefs Reportedly Moving To Kane County

And the moves just keep coming. First Anthony Rizzo, then Almora and Soler, then Arodys Viscaino, and now Kane County. 

The Suntimes reports the Cubs are working to move their low class A affiliate, currently the Peoria Chiefs, to Kane County beginning next season. The Cubs' contract with Peoria ends this year, a relationship that has a thirty-year history.

Kane County has drawn very nicely over the years and should expect a nice boost in attendance due to the move. Almora and Soler could both begin the season there, along with Prince Fielder body double Dan Vogelbach. Vogelbach is currently destroying pitching in rookie ball in Boise. Also, high ceiling young pitchers Dillon Maples, Pierce Johnson, and Duane Underwood could also be there.

The organization's talent is settled at the bottom right now, mostly in A ball or rookie ball, so fans should get a kick out of seeing some very talented future Cubs. Another great move by Thoyer and the Ricketts'. Let's keep the good news coming.
