Cubs Single-A Hitter of the Week: OF Felix Stevens
.375/.400/.958 1 BB, 2 2B, 4 HR, 7 R, 6 RBI, 1-1 SB
Felix Stevens is another guy I love to see pop up on these sort of lists. He’s a little old for the competition at 23 years old but he’s showing in-game power in a way that few other are at this level. He’s a legitimate power/speed combo threat and the four homers he hit this week could be just the beginning as he appears to be settling into a nice groove.
He’s only been with the Cubs for about a year at this point, but he’s another one that I’d love to see at a little bit higher level. Like I said, he’s older than the competition at Low-A and when there is a disparity between the mental and physical maturity of prospects it makes it tough to really know how inflated the numbers are and whether or not it’s artificial.
If Stevens continues ripping the cover off the ball, look for him to be in South Bend sooner rather than later. Then, we'll have to see how he stacks up.
