5 Chicago Cubs players that may benefit from Seiya Suzuki injury - Darius Hill
While Darius Hill is not a top prospect in the Cubs organization, the 25-year-old outfielder has the profile to be a productive player at the Major League level. Hill had 373 plate appearances with Triple-A Iowa season and slashed .318/.358/.434.
Hill put the ball in play frequently last season by evidence of his .364 BABIP with the Iowa Cubs while only striking out at a 14.2% clip. The Cubs have prioritized putting the ball in play at the Major League level and that could be the reason why Hill will be a candidate for an early call-up this season. If Hill makes the most of his playing time in Spring Training, he could make the Opening Day roster.
