Dylan Edward Cease (born December 28, 1995) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Chicago Cubs organization.


Cease is No. 3 White Sox prospect, No. 21 overall


Cease attended Milton High School in Milton, Georgia. Pitching for the school's baseball team, his fastball velocity averaged 91 to 95 miles per hour (146 to 153 km/h), while peaking at 97 miles per hour (156 km/h). In games that he did not pitch, Cease played shortstop. In 2013, his junior year, Milton won the state championship in baseball. Cease committed to attend Vanderbilt University on a college baseball scholarship to play for the Vanderbilt Commodores.

In August 2013, prior to Cease's senior year at Milton, Jonathan Mayo of considered Cease to be a potential first-round draft choice in the upcoming 2014 MLB Draft. Cease left a game during his senior season, on March 3, 2014, due to elbow soreness, which was later diagnosed as a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the elbow in his pitching arm. As a result, he fell in the draft, and the Chicago Cubs selected him in the sixth round. He signed with the Cubs, receiving a $1.5 million signing bonus, well above the $269,500 recommended at that slot. After he signed, he underwent Tommy John surgery to repair the UCL. He resumed throwing in May 2015, and pitched for the Arizona Cubs of the Rookie-level Arizona League. At the end of the 2015 season, Baseball America rated Cease as the second-best prospect in the Arizona League.

Personal life

Cease has a twin brother, Alec.
