Chicago Cubs: Caleb Knight another catching talent in the system
By Logan Whaley
The Chicago Cubs have impressive depth in their system behind the plate. While there are more well-known names currently in the pipeline, one backstop is seemingly going unnoticed.
Over time we here at Cubbies Crib have covered what feels like the entire plethora of catchers who currently reside in the Cubs system. From top prospect Miguel Amaya to Jhonny Pereda, from Ethan Hearn and Ronnier Quintero to P.J. Higgins, the list feels endless.
One guy, in particular, has somehow skirted along, however, relatively unknown and under the radar and that is 24-year-old backstop Caleb Knight. While Willson Contreras remains the future in the Windy City, at least for now, it does not hurt to know the team has yet another guy who could find himself making an impact in this decade.
Knight has an interesting journey to professional baseball. After graduating from Checotah High School in Oklahoma, Knight attended Connors State College for two years. It was the start of an exciting experience that would ultimately lead him to professional ball.
