7. Christopher Morel, 3B

Regarding players on insane trajectories last season, Christopher Morel comes in in the seventh spot. This is where you realize how deep this lineup is getting. Morel's 26 home runs and 70 RBIs in 107 games had him at a crazy pace a year ago. Already looking great in Spring Training, production such as this from this low in the lineup is rare, and if Morel sticks at third base, he'll have every opportunity to play every day, where the sky is the limit.

8. Pete Crow-Armstrong, CF

Pete Crow-Armstrong has much to prove offensively, but he can get there this spring before the Cubs set a 26-man roster. Seeing him rope a double into the gap in his first at-bat of Spring Training was encouraging, considering it came off an MLB veteran pitcher. We will have to monitor his plate appearances this spring because if he can be ready to patrol the center field every day, the Cubs lineup will be much more profound and give them one of the best defenses in the league.

9. Yan Gomes, C

Yan Gomes still gets the start for me behind the dish until Miguel Amaya is ready to take over. As the season continues, I expect more of Amaya and less of Gomes starting games. Gomes' game-calling ability is top-notch, and his bat was great in clutch situations last year. He is on an expiring contract, so hopefully, he can teach the young Amaya as many tricks and skills as possible before reaching free agency.
