Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Sidelined by injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amaya (undisclosed) is on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Tennessee, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The specifics of the issue remain unclear, though the young catcher has been on the shelf since early June. Amaya was hitting .215/.406/.304 with one homer, four doubles, 13 RBI, 11 runs and two stolen bases in 23 games for the Smokies prior to the injury.

Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Goes deep Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amaya went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Monday's Cactus League game against the Angels.

It was the first home run and third hit overall this spring for the 22-year-old catcher. He has plenty of upside, but he's yet to appear in a game above the High-A level, so he'll likely start the season at Double-A or Triple-A.

Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Not on Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amaya was not included on the Cubs' 30-man Opening Day roster.

This isn't a huge surprise, as Amaya has yet to appear above High-A. The 21-year-old will spend the 2020 season working on his development at the team's alternate site in South Bend, and he remains in the Cubs' future plans behind the plate.

Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Added to player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amaya will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool and participate in summer camp in South Bend.

Amaya will be joined by 10 other players in South Bend, a group that will likely focus on development while MLB regulars train at Wrigley Field. The 21-year-old hasn't appeared above High-A and consequently isn't likely to make his way to the majors this season, but he could enhance his prospect stock if he looks good in camp.

Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Optioned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amaya was optioned to Double-A Tennessee on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

He was in big-league camp for the experience, rather than as an actual candidate to break camp in the majors. Amaya is a better real-life prospect than a fantasy one, as he projects to be a quality defender who hits for a middling average and solid power.

Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Could begin season at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amaya, who is in his first big-league camp this year, could start the season with Double-A Tennessee, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The 20-year-old catcher is getting his first taste of the MLB level this spring, but the Cubs are in no rush to make him their everyday backstop with Willson Contreras around. Amaya spent 2019 at High-A Myrtle Beach and had a .235/.351/.402 slash line with 11 home runs and 24 doubles in 99 games.

Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amaya was added to the 40-man roster by the Cubs on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old signed as a glove-first catcher in 2015 but has performed well enough to warrant protection from the Rule 5 draft. Amaya spent 2019 at High-A Myrtle Beach and had a .235/.351/.402 slash line with 11 home runs and 24 doubles in 99 games.
