2. Ian Happ

Since Happ's ascendance to the majors in 2017, he has played a variety of positions and batted in every spot in the lineup many times. Over the years, the Cubs have tried to make him the everyday leadoff hitter to no avail. This is a shame because, like Hoerner, Happ is speedy on the base paths and usually makes good contact. Not to mention he's a switch hitter. But in 316 at-bats while batting first, Happ has struck out 110 times with a .228 batting average. Even with those ugly numbers, I will never forget Happ sending the first pitch of the 2018 season for a home run in Miami.
