All I've Got of Him: Albert Almora

Albert Almora was the Cubs first round draft pick in 2012. That makes him the first pick by the Theo / Judd regime.  Almora was called up to the Cubs last week when Jorge Soler went on the DL with a hamstring strain.  It took Almora a little longer to reach the majors compared to some of the other recent draftees, but he picked straight out of high school.  The others came from college.

Despite a MLB career of just two games, I've already got a mini stack of Almora.  Bowman, Heritage Minors and Pro Debut have been the contributors.  In all, I've got 14 cards of Albert Almora.

  1. He's holding his own so far. I love how the Cubs have been able to just keep plugging in new players.
