Could the Chicago Cubs have the NL Rookie of the Year in 2015?

1 of 4

This year’s version of the Chicago Cubs comes with a bit of excitement. Some of it may be a bit misplaced, but enough happened this winter that we can indeed be hopeful for better days ahead. With the winter weather dreary (even for me here in North Carolina), I thought we’d start to “think spring”. Pitcher and catchers will report in a little over a month. While we can’t be sure of all of the roster, there are a few that will either be in Chicago to start the season, or won’t be far behind.

So of this group I have in mind, I started wondering which – if any – could possibly win the National League Rookie of the Year Award. It truly is an imperfect science to predict the success of a prospect once he makes it to the Show. “Can’t miss” prospects all too often do, and others fly under the radar – like a Craig Biggio – and become Hall of Famers. So which Cubs’ prospect has the best chance at it?
