Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Remains on bench
Crow-Armstrong is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's contest with Arizona.

Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Sits again Saturday
Crow-Armstrong remains on the bench for Saturday's game against Arizona.
Crow-Armstrong started a pair of games earlier in the week after earning his first career call-up, but he's now been on the bench for two games in a row. He's gone 0-for-7 at the plate with three strikeouts and is 0-for-1 on the basepaths, so he's yet to do much in very limited action to suggest he should be playing everyday for a potential playoff team. Mike Tauchman starts in center field Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Sitting Friday
Crow-Armstrong isn't in the Cubs' lineup Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Crow-Armstrong remains hitless (0-for-7) through the first three games of his MLB career, so the Cubs will give the 21-year-old a day off to regroup. Mike Tauchman will start in center field Friday and bat in the leadoff spot.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Starting in center field Tuesday
Crow-Armstrong will start in center field and bat eighth Tuesday at Colorado, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.
Crow-Armstrong made his major-league debut off the bench Monday and is now getting his first big-league start as the Cubs take on Rockies right-hander Chris Flexen. The dynamic 21-year-old top outfield prospect slashed .288/.364/.524 versus righties this season in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Officially joins big club
The Cubs selected Crow-Armstrong's contract from Triple-A Iowa on Monday.
Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reported earlier that Crow-Armstrong would likely be activated Tuesday, but the Cubs will make the 21-year-old outfielder's promotion official ahead of Monday's series opener versus the Rockies. The lefty-hitting Crow-Armstrong is not in the lineup Monday against southpaw Kyle Freeland, but Crow-Armstrong should play regularly in center field when the Cubs oppose right-handers. Between stops at Iowa and Double-A Tennessee this season, Crow-Armstrong hit .283 with 20 home runs and 37 stolen bases over 500 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Getting call to majors
The Cubs plan to call up Crow-Armstrong from Triple-A Iowa prior to Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The 21-year-old will make his first trip to the big leagues this week, with his arrival expected to bolster the Cubs as they prepare for a playoff run. He's expected to immediately settle in as an everyday player in center field, where he already profiles as a potential Gold Glove-caliber defender. Crow-Armstrong has also displayed some growth as a hitter in 2023 while splitting time between Iowa and Double-A Tennessee, slashing .283/.365/.511 to go with 20 home runs and 37 stolen bases in 47 attempts. Expect the Cubs to deploy Crow-Armstrong near the bottom of the lineup, though if he can keep his strikeouts in check and continue to get on base at a steady clip like he has in the minors, he should have ample opportunities to put his speed on display in September....

Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: One step away from majors
Crow-Armstrong was promoted from Double-A Tennessee to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.
The Cubs' center fielder of the future, Crow-Armstrong had a 150 wRC+ and 11.9 percent walk rate since May 23 and hit .368 with four home runs and four steals in his last 10 games, so it was time for a new challenge. The 21-year-old lefty hitter has a chance to aid fantasy managers in all five standard roto categories. It's not inconceivable that the Cubs could bring him up in September if he doesn't skip a beat at Triple-A, but it's more likely Crow-Armstrong debuts early next season.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Dialed in at Double-A
Crow-Armstrong is slashing .280/.351/.500 with nine home runs and 16 steals in 48 games for Double-A Tennessee.
The 21-year-old outfielder has been particularly impactful of late, hitting .316 with five home runs and five steals in his last 19 games. Crow-Armstrong projects as the Cubs' center fielder of the future, and he brings a strong combination of power and speed to go with his plus defense.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Slow start to spring
Armstrong went 0-for-2 with a strikeout in Monday's Cactus League game against the Mariners and is now batting just .154 this spring.
Crow-Armstrong is one of the Cubs' top prospects, though he's yet to appear above the High-A level, so he's likely still a few years away from the majors. The 20-year-old should still benefit from the experience against MLB pitching, and he'll look to hit the ground running in the minors this season. Crow-Armstrong will likely spend the bulk of the year with Double-A Tennessee.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Shows promise in 2022
Crow-Armstrong hit .312/.376/.520 with 16 homers, 32 steals (on 43 tries) and a 36:102 BB:K over 101 games split between Single-A and High-A in 2022.
Crow-Armstrong was much better across 39 games in Single-A (.998 OPS) than in the 63 games he played in High-A (.832 OPS), but he closed out the season on a heater, batting .362/.408/.543 over his final 23 games. Notably, Crow-Armstrong struck out at just an 18.4 percent clip over that stretch -- a huge improvement over the nearly 30 percent figure he was sitting on in High-A before then. That said, he also drew just three walks in that span, so he clearly still has some work to do. Nonetheless, Crow-Armstrong has impressive tools and makeup, making him one of the Cubs' top prospects. He's still a couple years away from the big leagues, though.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Heavy strikeout numbers in High-A
Crow-Armstrong has hit .253 with eight homers, 13 steals and a .791 OPS in 42 games since his promotion to High-A South Bend, but he's also struck out 51 times in 196 plate appearances -- a 28.6 percent clip.
His whiffing issues have been even more pronounced recently, as Crow-Armstrong has a 32.9 percent strikeout rate across his last 18 games. The 20-year-old outfielder also has a meager 5.7 percent walk rate at the higher level. Crow-Armstrong was far better on both counts earlier this season in Single-A, where he struck out at a terrific 17.6 percent clip while posting a 12.4 percent walk rate. While his power and speed have remained intact -- he's now up to 16 homers and 27 steals -- Crow-Armstrong clearly has to make some adjustments to get his plate discipline back on track....

Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Returning to action Saturday
Crow-Armstrong (hand) will return to the lineup at High-A South Bend on Saturday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.
Crow-Armstrong sustained a bruise on the back of his hand last week but will bat leadoff and play center field Saturday after missing two weeks. Over nine games since being promoted to South Bend, the 20-year-old has hit .205 with two homers, a triple, three doubles, seven runs and five RBI.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Dealing with hand injury
Crow-Armstrong is dealing with a hand injury and is expected to be sidelined for a week or two, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but it's apparently not a serious concern since Crow-Armstrong is expected to make a relatively quick return. The 20-year-old had a .998 OPS with Single-A Myrtle Beach to start the season and was promoted to High-A South Bend, but he's struggled through nine games at the higher level with a .692 OPS and 30.8 percent strikeout rate....
