Tosses six one-hit innings Monday
PChicago Cubs  AA
May 8, 2018
Clifton gave up one hit, walked two, and struck out nine over six scoreless frames for Double-A Tennessee on Monday.
ANALYSIS
The 22-year-old righty retired 13 straight batters at one point in the outing and lowered his season ERA and WHIP to 3.69 and 1.11, respectively. Clifton, a 12th-round draft pick in 2013, isn't viewed as a marquee prospect in the Cubs' system due to his weak fastball and so-so command. He's unlikely to emerge as much more than back-end rotation piece or long reliever once he hits the big leagues.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Minor League Pitcher of the Year for the Cubs in 2016, Clifton led the Carolina League in ERA at 2.72 while holding opposing batters to an anemic .225 BAA. He also finished third in the league in strikeouts, fanning 129 batters in 119 innings for High-A Myrtle Beach. A 12th-round pick in the 2013 draft, Clifton has already exceeded expectations with improved command along with swing-and-miss ability, particularly with a filthy curveball. Double-A will be a true test of Clifton's future path, along with the continued development of a third pitch. Clifton may not have the upside of a No. 1 or even a No. 2 starter, but his polish and wipeout curveball make him an intriguing prospect to watch as he ascends to the higher levels for the Cubbies.
