Arismendy Alcantara making move up rankings
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cubs rookie Arismendy Alcantara already extended his stay in the big leagues with his performance filling in for Darwin Barney, who was on paternity leave, and now with him continuing to pile up hits as an everyday player, he's making a move up my rankings.

Granted, it's only five games, and anybody can do anything in a span of five games (that's really not an exaggeration). Alcantara has already struck out five times in those five games, and as I wrote in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, his poor plate discipline will rear its ugly head eventually. Still, his combination of power and speed could make him a significant contributor at the thin shortstop position.

Even with all the unknowns, I'm willing to rank him as high as 17th at the position, ahead of Eugenio Suarez, Jean Segura and Asdrubal Cabrera, among others, and the names just ahead of him aren't so high-end that he couldn't push his way into the top 12 in the weeks ahead. If nothing else, you should add him in leagues that require the use of a middle infielder.

Alcantara, who had four hits Thursday, can play second, shortstop or center.

Arismendy Alcantara picks up four hits Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs infielder Arismendy Alcantara picked up four hits Thursday against the Reds.

After striking out in his first at-bat, and hitting a sac fly his second time up, Alcantara quickly turned things around. He doubled in his third plate appearance, singled his fourth time up and clubbed a triple his fifth time at the plate. He would go on to add another single his final time up. Alcantara finished 4 for 5, with two runs scored and three RBI. The strong performance likely played a role in the Cubs keeping Alcantara on the active roster following the game.
