Cubs Top Prospect Goes Full ‘The Natural’ And Smashes Lights Out With Home Run

PAULSACCA, BRO BIBLE

As if the Chicago Cubs didn’t have enough young stars on their current roster to make a splash. Now their minor league players are getting national headlines with their exemplary talents. Eloy Jimenez, who is the Cubs’ top prospect, has plus-plus power and a .546 slugging percentage with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The young slugger flaunted his tremendous swing at the Class A Advanced Carolina League’s Home Run Derby on Monday. Jimenez did not disappoint.

Jimenez smashed a baseball into another orbit during the derby and it went so far that it obliterated a set of lights high on a pole past the fence in left field. The blast by the 20-year-old phenom ruptured the lights which sparked comparisons to Roy Hobbs’ triumphant blast in “The Natural.”
