Pete Crow-Armstrong News
In a 2024 MLB Pipeline poll of front-office executives from all 30 organizations, Chicago Cubs outfielder Pete Crow-Armstrong was voted the best defensive prospect. Crow-Armstrong has been considered the top defensive player in the minor leagues for a while now, and he made his major-league debut in Chicago in 2023, going hitless in 14 at-bats with an RBI and two stolen bases in 13 games. There should be multiple Gold Gloves in his future at the big-league level. The 21-year-old probably isn't going to hit for a high average in the Show, but he did bat .283/.365/.511 with 20 home runs and 37 steals in 107 games at the top two levels of the minors last season before getting his first major-league call-up. If he has a strong spring, Crow-Armstrong could be starting in Chicago's outfield on Opening Day, and his power/speed combination will make him a highly coveted prospect in all fantasy drafts.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Pete Crow-Armstrong is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The top prospect is currently 0-for-7 in his first three major league games. The Cubs have high hopes for Crow-Armstrong and are hopeful he can be an everyday option for them in center field. On Friday, Mike Tauchman will bat leadoff and cover center field versus right-hander Brandon Pfaadt.
Chicago Cubs outfielder Pete Crow-Armstrong made his big league debut against the Colorado Rockies on Monday. The top prospect came off the bench during Monday's win, but will now make his first career start in the big leagues. The 21-year-old will cover center field and bat eighth versus right-hander Chris Flexen on Tuesday. Crow-Armstrong was swinging the bat well in the minors, so hopefully he'll be an immediate impact player for the Cubs. He has the potential to be an five-tool everyday player at the major league level.
Chicago Cubs outfield prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong, MLB Pipeline's No. 16 overall prospect, made it to the big leagues at just 21 years of age in the 2023 season. However, he went hitless in 19 trips to the plate, striking out in 36.8% of them. After putting the boots to Double-A pitching, Armstrong took a significant step back upon a promotion to Triple-A a season ago, hitting .271 with six home runs, 10 stolen bases, and an elevated 29.7% K% across 158 plate appearances, production that helped lead to a 106 wRC+ which is a mere 6% superior to the Triple-A average. He has displayed a quality combination of power and speed in his minor-league tenure but also well-above-average strikeout rates, not a huge surprise given his age. ATC is projecting just 348 MLB plate appearances for Crow-Armstrong in 2024 and just nine HR in that time. He is a fine dynasty league asset with plenty of room for growth but Crow-Armstrong is best left alone in redraft leagues this spring.
