The Chicago Cubs are rumored to be the front-runners to sign the next A-Rod.
The Chicago Cubs farm system appears well-stocked at the shortstop position. Currently, according to MLB.com, five of the team’s top 30 prospects are shortstops. This list includes Rafael Morel, Kevin Wade, Zack Short, Pedro Martinez, and top-ranked prospect, Nico Hoerner.
This doesn’t even take into account the superstar who currently occupies the position, and whom the Cubs hope to sign to a long-term deal, Javier Baez. Nor does it include their first pick (No. 16 overall) in this year’s MLB Draft, Chicago native, Ed Howard, who was not only coveted by the Chicago White Sox but is unanimously considered the best shortstop in the draft.
