Chicago Cubs: Projecting the infield

We will make our way around the diamond examining how the infield’s production could shape out for the team in 2019.

The Cubs boast one of the most exciting and talented infields in all of Major League Baseball. On one side of the diamond, you have All-Star third baseman, Kris Bryant. Caddy corner to Bryant is All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo. All around Rizzo and Bryant is All-Star and jack of all trades, Javier Baez, the most electric man in all of baseball.

A formidable infield to boost, Baez was undoubtedly the higher producer of the three players. He finished second in this season’s National League MVP race, after posting a career year. Nevertheless, Rizzo and Bryant still did show up, despite the multiple DL stints Bryant had to face throughout the year.
