Alcantara had a season full of ups and downs in 2023 but he finished it on the right side. The major piece in the 2021 Anthony Rizzo trade enters 2024 as the Cubs’ fourth-best prospect and while it would take a string of unforeseen circumstances for him to make the Opening Day roster, he’s still going to be a lot of fun to watch until camp cuts come along.

In July of last season, he hit .405/.479/.667. He’s a fluid athlete and a potential 20-20 if not 30-30 candidate when he makes it to the bigs. Even if he doesn’t ever make an appearance at Wrigley Field he has the ability to be an extremely valuable trade chip at the deadline and a strong spring performance will only help that.
