Luis Robert vs Albert Almora Jr./Ian Happ
Ian Happ and Albert Almora Jr. both could potentially be the Cubs starting centerfielder at any point this season. Happ is listed as the starting center fielder on their official depth chart but it is hard to see that being an everyday thing. The Cubs have two guys that can somewhat play the position at a competent level but they aren’t the two best options.
The White Sox, on the other hand, is very excited about their centerfielder. He hasn’t played a single game in Major League Baseball but everyone thinks he might go on to be one of the best players in the league. His name is Luis Robert. He is going to be the Sox’ Opening Day centerfielder and will have a chance to be an impact player.
Ian Happ only played in 58 games for the Cubs in 2019 but he still managed to have a WAR of 1.0. Oddly enough, Almora had a WAR of -1.0 so they had a combined WAR of 0.0. Together they were as good as Luis Robert who didn’t play a single game, according to WAR. It is pretty clear that the young kid with all of the potential in the world is the starting centerfielder of an all Chicago team.
