When the Cubs see a problem, they just throw a top prospect at it.

The Situation: If it seems like we’re always discussing the benefits of the Cubs’ never-ending stream of offensive depth, it’s because it always seems to come in handy when injuries strike. This time, it’s Starlin Castro, who pulled up lame trying to scratch out an infield hit and will miss at least 3-4 weeks with a strained hamstring. This presented the Cubs with two options: slide Addison Russell over and call up Ian Happ—downgrading at two defensive positions in the process—or give the organization’s best shortstop, Gleyber Torres, the big stage. Most teams would kill for just one of those options, but for now, Happ is going to have to wait.

Background: The Cubs gave Torres $1.7 million in 2013—the days before the international draft was put into place—out of Venezuela, and though they’ve taken it relatively slow with the 20-year-old infielder, their patience appears to have paid off. He hit .322 at Low-A South Bend, but took another step forward in 2016; posting an .880 OPS at stops in Myrtle Beach and Tennessee. That improvement saw him rank second on the Cubs top-ten prospect list, and No. 19 overall on the BP 101 prior to the start of this year.
