(8/6/14) Cubs outfielder Arismendy Alcantara went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 13-4 loss to the Rockies Wednesday.
Alcantara gave his team a 3-0 lead with his fourth-inning home run, but it went all downhill from there for the Cubs. It was his first home run since July 22. Alcantara has hit .240/.313/.410 with three home runs, 10 RBI and four stolen bases in 100 at-bats.
|Arismendy Alcantara clubs second career HR |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/14) Cubs rookie infielder/outfielder Arismendy Alcantara hit his second career home run during a 6-0 win Tuesday against the Padres. Alcantara, who went 1 for 4 with a walk, hit a solo home run off Blaine Boyer in the seventh inning.
He is batting .282 with a .326 on-base percentage, .590 slugging percentage and .915 OPS in his first nine games with the Cubs. He also has one triple, two home runs, four doubles, seven RBI, 11 runs and three stolen bases.
|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.
