While there are a lot of new faces playing for the Chicago Cubs on Monday, there was other major news in the organization. Cubs’ No. 3 prospect and No. 97 prospect in the majors, OF Pete Crow-Amrstrong, has earned a promotion to High-A South Bend.

The number in Jordan Bastian’s tweet is not a typo. Crow-Armstrong has dominated the Low-A level with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. In 38 games so far, PCA is slashing .354/.443/.557 with seven home runs, five doubles, three triples, and 27 RBI. PCA also has 13 stolen bases, showing that his offensive game is well rounded. The 20-year-old has also played quality defense at Low-A.

Pete Crow-Armstrong has shown insane tools since being acquired in the Javier Baez trade last season. Most recently, MLB Pipeline re-ranked their top 100 prospects. In doing so, PCA entered the top 100 at No. 97 and No. 3 in the Cubs’ system. The former Mets prospect is giving Cubs fans something to look forward to in the future. He figures to be the centerfielder of the future assuming his progression continues at the pace it has thus far.

The South Bend Cubs are back in action on Tuesday, May 31. The Cubs will visit the Dayton Dragons (Cincinnati Reds). PCA will likely join the team in Dayton, Ohio for that series and make his High-A debut.
