Chicago Cubs: Up and down week leads to more Cubs questions
I am not sure if you were ever in an organization that announced a “most improved” award, but there are several candidates on the Chicago Cubs’ roster. Check out the stats of our nominees.
Albert Almora Jr.: .314/.333/.571 split, 4 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 6 R, 5 RBI
Jon Jay: .313/.333/.438 split, 2 2B, 1 3B, 4 R, 1 RBI
Willson Contreras: .360/.448/.824 split, 2 2B, 3 HR, 6 R, 6 RBI
Matt Szczur: .333/.379/.519 split, 1 2B, 2 3B, 5 R, 5 RBI
And the winner is……..
IAN HAPP! Yes, the No. 2 prospect is the winner for most improved on the Cubs at this time. For the week alone, Happ is 6-for-10 with two home runs and four knocked in. He also have two walks and one strike out during that time, giving him an on-base percentage of .667.
Not bad. Now, is it enough to bring him up to Wrigley this year? That remains to be seen.
