Cubs’ Pipeline Spring Training report | MLB.com

Cubs farm director Jaron Madison beams when asked about the organization’s seemingly never-ending supply of impact position players.
“We’re fortunate in that regard,” Madison said. “We’ve done a really good job with guys who can swing the bat and bought into our approach. That’s made it a lot easier to integrate them into what we’re doing.”

Chicago doesn’t have enough room in its lineup to accommodate all of its worthy hitters. Jimenez needs at least another year in the Minors and Happ could use another half-season, but corner infielder Jeimer Candelario has nothing left to prove in Triple-A and is hopelessly blocked by Bryant and Anthony Rizzo. Outfielder Mark Zagunis, an on-base machine, could challenge for a big league job on many clubs but is destined to return to Triple-A.
