Let the home runs commence!
The Chicago Cubs are off to a much slower start to the season than we expected, as the team currently sits at 16-14 on the year. Fortunately, they have one of the deepest farm systems in baseball, and can add some extra talent whenever they please to add a spark.
Speaking of deep farm systems, one of the Cubs top prospects is finally making his return to the field, as infielder Ian Happ has been activated from the DL.
The slugger has looked solid so far this season in his first year up in Triple-A, as he’s hitting .250 with eight homers and 21 doubles to go along with it.
Happ found himself on the DL with a bruised thumb that he suffered earlier last week.
If he keeps slashing his way through opposing lineups, perhaps we could see Happ make an appearance in the Majors this season.
