Despite never progressing past AA ball, Johermyn Chavez has certainly made some statements this spring. Chavez is hitting .389 through 11 games with a home run and two batted in. He has also given some glimpses of his speed and smarts in the outfield.
The youngster flashed the leather on Saturday, snagging a diving catch in a loss to the Indians. Chavez has proven that he can steal bases and hit home runs in the minors, and I have seen traces of his true ability this spring.
Despite only being 24 years old, he does not receive much attention in terms of prospect potential. Don't expect to see Chavez starting with the Cubs, but I see a lot of potential in his future.
