Chicago Cubs’ Top-100 Prospect All-Star roster
By Logan Whaley
Ian Happ was selected No.9 overall in the 2015 draft. Within a year he made his way to Triple-A, spending just 26 games at Iowa before making the final jump. During his first major league season, he slugged an impressive .514 with 24 home runs in only 115 games. Happ spent most of his games patrolling center, however as a utility player also saw some time in left and right as well as considerable time at second base, starting 28 games.
As Happ was drafted by the Cubs to play the outfield, this is where he belongs on this roster and brings an impact bat to boot.
The final guy on this list is Eloy Jimenez. Ultimately, Jimenez was dealt last season in a package which brought back hard-throwing left-hander Jose Quintana. Jimenez originally signed with the Cubs as the No.1 international prospect in 2013. The Cubs made it official with a $2.8 million contract.
Jimenez is reliable and will undoubtedly be very good for the White Sox. He once broke a light in left field on a massive batting practice home run. The Southside is lucky to have him. In 2017 Jimenez slugged .559 and batted .353. Currently, Jimenez is part of the 40 man roster which means his probability to make the club by Opening Day is pretty high. As a Cubs prospect, he apparently makes this list and to imagine this group patrolling the friendly confines of Wrigley is a fun thought.
