    • Cubs' Albert Almora: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Almora has been optioned to Triple-A Iowa, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Almora was sent down to make room for the return of Dexter Fowler. Almora held his own at the major league level, hitting .265/.291/.422 with two home runs and nine RBI in 83 at-bats. Almora will be the primary center fielder for Triple-A Iowa and most likely won't be back up anytime soon this season with the returns of Chris Coghlan and Jorge Soler on the horizon.

    • Cubs' Albert Almora: Pops homer in Sunday's win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Almora went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Pirates. The homer was his second of the season, and Almora's now hitting .282/.311/.465 through his first 28 big league games. The Cubs have four outfielders on the DL right now, but even when the roster gets healthier Almora's making a strong case to remain a big part of manager Joe Maddon's lineup mix.

    • Almora went 1-for-3 with his first MLB home run Wednesday against the Reds. He also walked. Almora's first career homer traveled 399 feet and came off the bat at 103 mph, according to Statcast. Called up in early June with Dexter Fowler and Jorge Soler on the DL, the Cubs' No 5 prospect got the start Wednesday as Jason Heyward received a routine day of rest. Since being recalled from the minors, Almora has started 10 games and appeared in 10 others either as a defensive replacement or pinch-hitter. He's played well for the Cubs when he's started, hitting .297 with five extra-base hits and four RBIs. Overall, the 22-year-old rookie is hitting .286 with a .327 OBP.
