Number 21

Yonathan Perlaza OF

Age: 24 Years Old

Level: AAA Iowa Cubs

Joined the organization via: IFA Signing in 2015

2023 Stats: .293/.390/.526 11 HR, 23 2B, 3 3B, 10 SB, 49 RBI, 56 R

Yonathan Perlaza should be at Wrigley right now. If he’s not going to be the next man up, then he should absolutely be there in August after the Cubs inevitably deal Cody Bellinger to a team in a better position to contend than they find themselves in right now. 

He’s not a player that has light-tower power and he doesn’t have blazing speed. What he does do is get on base and hit for average, which is something that I know Cubs fans are sick of hearing with regards to their outfielders (Seiya Suzuki and Ian Happ), but he is a player that can be a regular on a wild card team and a bench bat on a division-winning team.
