10 best single season performances by Chicago Cubs players in the last decade
10. Nick Castellanos 2019
So technically I'm cheating a little with this entry because Nick Castellanos was acquired by the Cubs at the 2019 trade deadline and he only played 51 games with them. However, he made quite a lasting impression in that short period of time and he provided some extra thump in a lineup that already included prime and healthy sluggers like Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, and Willson Contreras. In those 51 games, the former Detroit Tiger hit .321 with an OPS of 1.002, while slapping 16 home runs and 21 doubles. Castellanos also led the league in doubles that year with a commanding 58 on the season. Although the Cubs missed the postseason in 2019, Castellanos was a fun addition to the team and he had some LOUD hits down the stretch that year.
