Cubs

After the Cubs designated Darwin Barney for assignment Tuesday, general manager Jed Hoyer made one thing clear in reference to Arismendy Alcantara's development: "It's time for Mendy to play."
The Cubs took the next step in their long-term rebuilding effort late Tuesday, promoting highly ranked prospects Jorge Soler (to Triple-A Iowa) and Albert Almora (to Double-A Tennessee).
When are Javier Baez and Kris Bryant going to hit the big leagues? Whenever that day comes, they could be playing different positions than they are now, something the Cubs are dabbling with in the minor leagues.
