The Cubs have made significant strides in developing their minor league system. Now healthy, Pete Crow-Armstrong had an excellent step-up year, and Kevin Alcantara’s addition gave them much-needed athletic depth. Unfortunately, Brennan Davis missed most of the season with a back issue, and assuming he returns healthy next season; they have three players that could be impact players at the highest level. There’s still much work left, particularly on the pitching side, but if Cade Horton fully recovers from TJS, he could be a nice piece to build around.
