Watch: Cubs Stud Prospect, Kevin Alcántara, Goes Deep for First Home Run of Season
Kevin Alcántara was acquired in 2021 from the New York Yankees in the trade deadline deal that sent Anthony Rizzo packing. He’s merely 19 years old and already ranked as the 7th best prospect in the Cubs system according to MLB.com.
There’s a lot to love about the 6’6″ stud outfielder for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. He shows exceptional athleticism, real signs of a power bat along with plus-speed, and a lot of room left to grow.
I mean, just look at this sweet stroke:
