|Cubs add two to 40-man roster Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(11/20/13) The Cubs added infielder Arismendy Alcantara and pitcher Dallas Beeler to the 40-man roster Wednesday.
Alcantara hit .271/.352/.451 with 15 home runs, 69 RBI and 31 stolen bases in 494 at-bats with Double-A Tennessee in his age-21 season. Beeler went 4-2 with a 3.13 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 35:17 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings over nine starts for Double-A Tennessee.
2014 Draft Prep: Top 50 Fantasy prospects
Which top prospects stand the best chance of helping owners to a Fantasy title in 2014? Our Scott White shares his top 50 for the upcoming season, balancing talent with opportunity.
|Arismendy Alcantara is living proof of the prophetic ability of good, old-fashioned scouting. Lauded for his tools even while his numbers lagged in the lower levels, the 22-year-old broke through as a legitimate power-speed threat last year -- and at Double-A, no less. So now, he's considered as much a part of the Cubs' future as the higher-regarded (and yes, more talented) Javier Baez. The problem is both play the same position, with a similarly high-end type (Starlin Castro) already entrenched there in the majors. Recognizing the impending logjam, the Cubs shifted Alcantara to second base about halfway through the 2013 season, but a trade could still open the door for him at shortstop, particularly if Baez shifts to third base. And then there's the possibility of him playing sort of a rover role in the vein of Ben Zobrist or Martin Prado, which would only enhance his Fantasy appeal. The hope is Alcantara arrives at some point in 2014 and provides something like Jimmy Rollins or Rafael Furcal numbers somewhere down the line. You could take a flier on him in NL-only leagues, but understand that he still has a few hurdles to clear.
