Kris Bryant, Albert Almora, and Jorge Soler are AFL All-Stars

Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

Kris BryantThe Chicago Cubs sent three of The Big Four to the Arizona Fall League this year, and each ultimately has shown why he is a part of that group. To the extent you can do so in like 10 or 11 games, anyway.


Which is to say that each of Kris Bryant, Albert Almora, and Jorge Soler were named AFL All-Stars, in a game that will played on Saturday (called the Fall Stars Game). Bryant’s AFL performance has been the stuff of legends, as he leads the league in a number of offensive categories, and is hitting .422/.471/.933. Almora has cooled a bit since a blazing hot start, and is hitting .297/.333/.541 overall. Soler started out slowly, but has been scoring hot of late, bringing his line up to .300/.327/.440.

The best news of all? The Fall Stars game is televised! You can watch at 7pm CT on MLB Network, Saturday, November 2.
