2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

He does not hit for a ton of power or profile as even an average runner, but Zagunis is still one of the Cubs most appealing fantasy prospects. The lack of standout tools helped bury the catcher-turned-outfielder in a loaded system in recent years, but all the while he continued to hit and get on base at absurd clips. He received a promotion to Triple-A in June after posting a 154 wRC+ in 51 games at Double-A. After the promotion his 10.4 percent walk rate, 19.9 percent strikeout rate, .360 OBP and 123 wRC+ were his worst marks above rookie ball. In other words, the worst version of Zagunis we have seen was 23 percent better than league average in the Pacific Coast League. Think of him as a less-heralded Jesse Winker. A broken foot at the end of July cut his season short, but he should be ready for spring training. Entering his age-24 season, the best thing for his value would be a trade to an organization with an opening in an outfield corner.

2016

There's something here. The converted catcher and third-round draft pick in 2014 has a little pop, but the exciting part of his game is his batting eye. He walked 80 times (against 86 strikeouts) for High-A Myrtle Beach last year, and his 122:128 BB: ratio in his two years in the minors bodes well for his future. He also stole 12 bases last year after 16 thefts in his debut season, so he could have a future as a leadoff hitter and on-base machine. He's a bit under the radar, especially compared to the many offensive prospects who have been a part of the Cubs' system the last few years, but he's a good sleeper who could find himself with Double-A Tennessee in 2016 and vying for a spot on the major league roster in 2017.
