Pete Crow-Armstrong is Electric – Enjoy the Show

Chicago Cubs

Some guys just have it. That extra it. The combination of awareness and athleticism and body control and vision … they just can see and do things out on the field that few others can do.

I’m not saying we know yet for sure that Cubs outfield prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong is one of those guys, but I will say that I love his highlights just about as much as is possible.

Consider tonight, when PCA turned a double into a triple with his athleticism, and then turned a triple into a run with his awareness and body control:

That’s the swim move slide, and pulled off beautifully. Pete Crow-Armstrong is really breaking out this year, both as a stud defender in center field, and as a power threat at the plate. All the while, he’s got that great speed and athleticism.

Kinda appropriate that he was the prospect the Cubs got back in a trade for Javy Báez, no?
