5 Chicago Cubs prospects that could be promoted soon - 2. Haydn McGeary
I've been following Haydn McGeary for quite some time now. His video game numbers in college were impressive enough that regardless of playing for a DII college, it was evident that this guy could flat-out hit. Still, people need to pay more attention to his potential, and the fact that his slash of .373/.464/.593 in High-A is going unnoticed doesn't make much sense to me. These things tend to happen to players that should have been drafted higher, such as Matt Mervis, who wasn't even drafted in the five-round 2020 MLB draft, and, thus, never gained the spotlight they deserved along the way.
