Nico Hoerner was recently informed that he would not be making the big league team out of camp, but that’s not stopping him from continuing a really excellent spring training performance.
Take a look at his third homer of the spring (in fewer than 50 at-bats!):

If he goes to the alternate site/minors and hits anywhere *close* to how well he’s hit here in spring training, he’ll be back up with the big league Cubs before too long.
David Bote may have earned the job for the time being (justifiably!), but I think second base on the north side of Chicago will be home to Nico Hoerner for many years to come.
