The Track Record
Last summer, Arismendy Alcantara earned a trip to the All-Star Futures Game, the premier showcase for all of the minor leagues.
The top prospect didn't disappoint. Alcantara, who stands just 5'10" launched a home run into the second deck at Citi Field. While playing in Double-A in 2013, Alcantara clubbed 36 doubles and 15 home runs.
This year, the switch-hitter has collected 11 doubles, four triples and a pair of home runs in his first 35 games in Triple-A. Alcantara has also swiped eight bases in nine attempts.
Alcantara, who has also played extensively at shortstop, has a plus arm at second base.
When He'll Arrive in the Big Leagues
Alcantara is extremely close to debuting at Wrigley Field.
It's worth noting, of course, that he's not the organization's top middle-infield prospect. That distinction belongs to Javier Baez. However, of the two, Alcantara is closer to being ready for the major leagues. With the ability to hit for both power and average and the speed to steal bases, Alcantara could arrive in Chicago later this sumer.
