Cubs minor league outfielder off to a hot start


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs minor league outfielder Donnie Dewees is off to a blazing fast start in Class-A for the South Bend Cubs.

His impressive display has led him on the first 2016 edition of MLBPipeline's Prospect Team of the Week.

"Dewees led NCAA Division I in slugging (.749) and ranked second in hitting (.422) at North Florida last spring, and he has posted similar numbers in the early going in the low Class A Midwest League," MLB Pipeline said. "Though the Cubs are loaded with young position players, he eventually could claim a role in Chicago with his combination of hitting ability, power and speed."

In 10 games, he is batting .421 with two home runs, 9 RBIs, 9 runs, four doubles, three stolen bases, five walks and only four strikeouts.
