Albert Almora joins Kane County!
Awesome news this morning, the Cubs and the Cougars jointly announced that Albert Almora has been moved from extended Spring Training to Kane County. Almora was recovering from surgery to remove a broken hamate bone, but is now 100% healthy and ready to go. As of yet there has been no move to make a spot for him on the roster, but the press release does mention getting to see Almora play this weekend at home, so I’m assuming he will go right into the lineup. Again, this is awesome news as Almora is one of the best prospects the Cubs have (6th overall pick last year), and needs time on the field to get better.
