1/6 Cubs prospects injured


Three Cubs prospects, including highly touted shortstop Frandy De La Rosa, were involved in a car accident in the Dominican Republic on Monday. Other players involved, according to Dominican media reports, included pitchers Jose Zapata and Jefferson Antonio Mejia. De La Rosa, who turns 18 on Jan. 24, signed with the Cubs in July 2012. The players were hospitalized, and a Cubs official said they will likely be kept overnight for observation. A source in the Dominican told MLB.com that the players were not seriously injured.
