Chicago Cubs: Takeaways from this year’s talent group

Last year, the team missed out acquiring depth at the first and third base positions, which could mean that this is the year they do so. Their 2018 first round selection, shortstop Nico Hoerner, is hoping to be the next star in the loaded Cubs’ infield.

Two of the names on this list meet the Cubs’ need for depth. One is merely a superb offensive player who would be worth strong consideration for the team despite their selection of a shortstop last year.

As the Cubs have their young core already in the majors, the club is trying to rebuild their farm system and find their next crop of young star-studded talent. The draft is still a little while away however it is never too early to dive into this phase of baseball. Hopefully, 2019 is another year where the Cubs can find some impressive future talent.
