Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said Friday that he told Albert Almora he'd have "more" of a role in 2018.
It's possible that means Almora is an everyday player, although Epstein wouldn't guarantee that. Epstein's pronouncement isn't terribly surprising after Almora put up a better-than-expected .298/.338/.445 batting line in 2017 while playing superb defense in center field. The key for the 23-year-old going forward will be whether he can hit righties, as he's a career .320/.377/.503 hitter against lefties but holds a more modest .275/.300/.415 line versus righties.
