CSN's Patrick Mooney just sent out this tweet,
GM Jed Hoyer: "It's Time for Mendy to Play"
Which in turn had Twitter Cubs fans reacting like this (h/t Adam Brown)
It certainly is good news and maybe a surprise in that it seems that recent indication had been the opposite -- that is, that Arismendy Alcantara would be sent down to the minor leagues when the Cubs were ready to call up a pitcher.
Alcantara becomes the first of the Cubs elite prospects to get his full-time shot in the majors and, frankly, it gives us a player we can watch along with Jake Arrieta, Starlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo as this team transitions to the next phase of rebuilding.
And if the Cubs people say he is ready to play everyday in the big leagues, then who are we to argue?
