Nwogu is spending a few extra days in extended spring training before moving to High-A South Bend, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The 23-year-old outfielder struggled at Low-A last season, hitting .248/.344/.390 with 105 strikeouts in 94 games. According to Callis, Nwogu is healthy, so he may just be working on some things in a controlled environment before making his debut at High-A.

Farm Futures: First-Year Player Draft Tiers
June 23, 2020
James Anderson breaks the top-100 fantasy prospects from this year's draft into tiers, including new Jays center fielder, Austin Martin, who has the second tier all to himself.
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Nwogu impressed with the bat in all three collegiate seasons he appeared in with Michigan, and ended his career hitting .334/.430/.545 across 525 plate appearances. The Cubs selected the well-built 6-foot-3, 235-pound outfielder with the No. 88 overall pick, and the early returns suggest they may have gotten a steal. To provide some context of the type of athlete he is, Nwogu drew interest from college football teams as an edge rusher before settling on baseball. Despite his size, he is a plus runner and it's easy to envision him developing plus power. The big question will be whether he hits enough to be a regular. He hit .389/.500/.556 in the fall instructional league, but that was just 22 plate appearances, so we can't read too much into it. Still, college hitters with Nwogu's physical tools who have a chance to hit are pretty rare, so he is definitely one to monitor in his first full season.
