Chicago Cubs: Some Triple-A performers to keep an eye on
Chicago Cubs: Garcia headlines the middle infield performers
Robel Garcia was fun to watch while he was in Iowa. During his time there, Garcia showed his power, hitting 21 home runs – the second-most on the team this season.
Along with his power at the plate, his fielding was on another level, playing in six different positions he registered 165 putouts and turned 21 double plays. He played man integral role for the big league club at times this season, as well, but pitchers quickly adjusted. Garcia will need to make critical adjustments if he wants to stick in 2020.
Trent Giambrone represented another power bat in the Cubs organization this year. With team-leading 23 home runs and 66 runs batted in, Giambrone stood out as a major producer in the Iowa offense. Not only does he have skill at the plate but he’s shown strong work on the base paths as well, swiping 17 bases.
In addition to Giambrone, Donnie Dewees also contributed to the I-Cubs’ offense by supplying 60 runs on 93 hits. Dewees appeared in 111 games hitting a respectable .253 at the dish. Mostly an outfielder Dewees recorded over 300 putouts and only committed eight errors during this season.
