Cubs third-base prospect Christian Villanueva is hitting .308/.400/.615 with a home run and a double through four games in Triple-A.
Villanueva is the forgotten third base prospect in the Cubs system, as he is blocked at the major league level by Mike Olt and Luis Valbuena, with Kris Bryant lurking in Double-A. However, Olt is hitting .077/.077/.308 and Valbuena is hitting .250/.471/.250, which could open the door for Villanueva. Originally signed by the Rangers out of Mexico in 2008, he was acquired as part of the Ryan Dempster trade in 2012. Villanueva is considered a substantially above-average defensive third baseman, which could hasten his ascent. Apr 8 - 10:02 AM
