Chicago Cubs: Figuring out who plays second base

A big question for the team is, who is going to play second base? I would say the team has one of if not the most significant depth at this position. From experienced players to rookies, the Cubs have an outstanding amount of talent to figure out. The option endless when it comes to the second base.

The first option could be the outstanding upcoming star, Nico Hoerner. A 2018 draft pick of the Cubs, made a name for himself when he made his debut for the club as he collected not only his first hit but his first three hits of his career as he blasted four RBIs in a 10-2 victory over the San Diego Padres.

Another option is David Bote, a utility man for the Cubs. Bote can play where ever they put them and do it well. Not only is his fielding at an incredibly amazing, but the power of his swing is also magnificent. Only in his two seasons with the team, Bote has a batting average of .251 and has a 3.2 WAR rating.

The last two options have probably are the most experienced players on the Cubs roster. One is Jason Kipnis, who joined the team from Cleveland. Kipnis, by far, the highest career WAR, and only Daniel Descalso can match his playoff experience. Descalso the other option with experience, but he hasn’t been doing much for the club. He is more of a body on the team than a player who can perform day in and out.
