4 players the Cubs should keep/trade - Pete Crow-Armstrong (keep)

The number one prospect in the Cubs’ organization, Pete Crow-Armstrong, is essentially untouchable in trade talks. You won’t see the Cubs trading him. He offers a high floor due to his elite defensive ability and coupled with what many believe is a high upside offensively, Crow-Armstrong is one player that the Cubs’ front office is a core piece of the team for years to come.

At just 21 years old, it wasn’t too alarming that Crow-Armstrong went hitless in his short stint in the majors last season. Moreover, the evidence was there that he was still overmatched. Thankfully, he has excelled at every level once he’s had time to adjust. It won’t be long before he can do so in MLB, and once he does, the Cubs will have their long-term center fielder of the future. It will be interesting to see how he does in Spring Training and where he will begin the 2024 season.
