Last season, the promise of the Chicago Cubs farm system finally began to pay dividends at the big league level, with the likes of Javier Baez, Jorge Soler and Arismendy Alcantara making their respective big league debuts – and that’s not to mention the standout pitching the team received from young right-hander Kyle Hendricks, who went on to finish seventh in the National League Rookie of the Year balloting.
