Gerardo Concepcion's pro debut got ugly fast.
Concepcion, a 20-year-old Cuban lefthander who signed this year with the Cubs, gave up five runs in the first inning against low Class A Lake County (Indians), though he stayed in the game and pitched around trouble the rest of the way, finishing with five runs allowed in five innings, with eight hits, one walk and two strikeouts.
Concepcion received a reported five-year, $6 million major league deal, a surprising amount to many scouts given Concepcion's stuff, and reports from extended spring training in Arizona were consistent with those pre-signing reports.
