Latest Update Arismendy Alcantara is batting .324/.395/.544 t Fri Dec, 19, 01:16 AM
Can hit for both average and power from both sides of the plate, and can also steal plenty of bases. He makes things happen on offense. Also displays a good throwing arm.
Flaws: : Is starting to draw more walks and become more selective at the plate, but he still needs to work on that aspect of his game even more. Must also cut down on his propensity for errors.
Alcantara is currently penciled in as the Cubs everyday center fielder next season, though his ultimate role may be as a superutility player. Alcantara struggled in his MLB debut, batting just .205 in 70 games, though he did hit 10 home runs and steal eight bases. He could be worth a late-round pick come draft time, especially if he continues to hit in the Dominican League.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Despite flashing power upside in his first year with the Cubs, Alcantara is sitting on a mere .214 average through 252 at-bats as he continues to struggle with consistency down the stretch. However, he is only 22-years-old, so there is still plenty of time for him to mature into a big league hitter, although that may not translate into fantasy success anytime soon. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Alcantara is dealing with a minor sprain, but the Cubs don't have any reason to rush him back, so there's a good chance he could be out a few more days.Analyst: David Kerr
