Almora batted .297 while Soler hit .300 during the Fall season. Almora was the Cubs’ No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft and Soler left Cuba to sign with the Cubs in June of 2012.
The three prospects rank in the top 35 on the MLB.com’s Top 100 Prospects list, Almora is ranked No. 21, Soler is No. 25, and Bryant No. 35.
Almora saw limited action at Class A Kane County because of a groin injury but hit .329 with three home runs, four triples, 17 doubles, 23 RBIs, with 30 strike outs and 17 walks in only 61 games. Soler missed most of the season with a stress fracture in his left leg at Class A-Advanced Daytona.
The eighth annual Fall Stars Game will begin at 7 p.m. CT on MLB Network Saturday night.
