The comparisons between Mike Trout and Cubs first-round pick Kris Bryant extend beyond the baseball field.
As Starlin Castro trotted around the bases in the eighth inning Friday, the Cubs caught a glimpse into their future.
Kris Bryant finished a practice swing, turned toward Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer, flashed a wide smile and asked, 'How do I look?'
The Cubs guaranteed Scott Baker $5.5 million after he didn’t throw a single pitch for the Minnesota Twins in 2012.
Since Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over the Cubs front office, much of the focus has been pulled from the product at Wrigley Field to the minor league system.
