Infielder Isaac Paredes was signed by the Chicago Cubs before the 2016 season. He began his professional career with the AZL Cubs, where he hit .305 in 47 games, before earning a brief late-season promotion to the South Bend Cubs. In 2017, at only 18, he was assigned to South Bend from the start of the season, where he was a full three years younger than the average player in the Midwest League. In 92 games, he hit .264/.343/.401, confirming his stature as a top prospect. On July 30th, he and Jeimer Candelario were traded to the Detroit Tigers in return for two major leaguers, C Alex Avila and P Justin Wilson.
