2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Narvaez hadn't played an inning above High-A in his career prior to 2016, but he made a much bigger impact than expected. He began the campaign with Double-A Birmingham, but he only played 13 games there before he was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte. Although his results were modest at best (.245 batting average, 11 RBI, 14 runs), injuries in Chicago helped the backstop get the call to the big leagues, where he fared surprisingly well. His .267 batting average in 101 at-bats was more than serviceable considering the circumstances, and he impressed many with his plate discipline by posting a strong 14:14 K:BB ratio over that span. He certainly doesn't have the prospect shine that newly drafted Zack Collins has, but at just 24 years old, Narvaez has some room to grow over the years as he continues to face upper-level pitching. He should compete for the starting gig out of spring training if he can maintain this strong showing at the plate.
