Chicago Cubs: Finding success early on

Strumpf played just seven games in the Arizona Summer League before earning his call-up to the next level. He struggled in that span, slashing just .182/.406/.318, however, did finish with a well-above-average .369 wOBA and 117 wRC+.

In his 32 plate appearances, Strumpf struck out 21.9 percent of the time but also showed his patience by working a 21.9 percent walk rate. He scored a run in each of his first five games and had a couple of extra-base hits to add to his offense.

His call to Eugene kicked off with a bang as Strumpf finished 4-for-5 with an RBI and two doubles. He would hit safely in his first four games for the Emeralds, recording multi-hit affairs in his first three contests.
