Player Outlook
Already a Gold Glove caliber center fielder, Pete Crow-Armstrong got a brief taste of the majors to close his age-21 season. His contact rate was 72.5% at Double-A, 66.4% at Triple-A and 56.4% in the majors, so there is a pretty low batting average floor as things stand. He still managed a .283/.365/.511 slash line with 20 home runs and 37 steals in 107 games across the top two levels of the minors, so it's easy to see why many prospectors are excited about his power/speed potential under the assumption his defense will buy him a long leash. He has 98th percentile sprint speed but his exit velocities are middling. However, he gets the most of his average raw power thanks to a propensity to lift and pull. Seiya Suzuki and Ian Happ will return as everyday players, and Crow-Armstrong could win the third outfield spot in camp while competing against the likes of Mike Tauchman and Christopher Morel, but it's also possible the rookie returns to Triple-A if he is struggling to make enough contact in the spring.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: First career multi-homer game

    Crow-Armstrong went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs, a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Cardinals. Entering Sunday, Crow-Armstrong had just one homer all season. He finally flashed some power by taking Miles Mikolas deep in the third and fifth innings to triple his homer total on the year. Crow-Armstrong has added 17 RBI, 11 runs scored, 16 stolen bases and a .203/.253/.329 slash line over 174 plate appearances. With Cody Bellinger suffering a fractured finger Wednesday, Crow-Armstrong may have a bit more time to make his case to stay in the majors after the All-Star break.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Making return to lineup

    Crow-Armstrong (thumb) will start in center field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Orioles. Crow-Armstrong will pick up his first start in a week, as he went without an appearance in four straight games while he contended with a sore left thumb before he made a cameo off the bench as a pinch runner in Tuesday's 9-2 win. Though the lefty-hitting Crow-Armstrong may continue to sit against most left-handed starting pitchers, he should get the chance to play regularly against righties now that he's healthy again. He may be at risk of a demotion to Triple-A Iowa, however, once the Cubs get Mike Tauchman (groin) back from the injured list.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Available off bench Tuesday

    Manager Craig Counsell said Crow-Armstrong (thumb) is available off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Orioles, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Crow-Armstrong received stitches in his left thumb following Wednesday's game against the Phillies. The 22-year-old hasn't played since, and his hitting session Tuesday was his first since the injury. Crow-Armstrong is slashing .199/.247/.294 with 16 stolen bases, three triples, one home run and 15 RBI over 150 plate appearances this season.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Moving into reserve role

    Crow-Armstrong is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels. Though the Cubs aren't yet back to full strength in the outfield with Mike Tauchman (groin) still stuck on the injured list, manager Craig Counsell has seemingly pulled the plug on Crow-Armstrong as a regular part of the lineup versus right-handed pitching. Crow-Armstrong will hit the bench for the fourth game in a row, with the Cubs facing two lefties and two righties in that span. Since getting called up from Triple-A Iowa in late May, Crow-Armstrong has gone 11-for-11 in stolen-base attempts, but he's slashed .173/.212/.247 with a 32.2 percent strikeout rate.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Gets stitches but is available

    Crow-Armstrong received four stitches for a left thumb injury suffered during Wednesday's game versus the Phillies, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Crow-Armstrong was hurt on a slide into third base. He is not in Thursday's lineup but was unlikely to be in it, regardless, with the Phillies sending lefty Cristopher Sanchez to the mound. Crow-Armstrong will be available off the bench.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Shines in loss

    Crow-Armstrong went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two RBI and one stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Phillies. This was his first multi-hit game since June 22. Crow-Armstrong has displayed good baserunning this year, swiping 16 bags without getting caught, but his chances have been limited. He's batting just .199 with a .247 on-base percentage, and he's added one home run, 15 RBI and eight runs scored over 150 plate appearances. He continues to patrol center field against opposing right-handed pitchers, and his playing time should remain steady through the All-Star break.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Triples in win

    Crow-Armstrong went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Mets. Crow-Armstrong showed off his excellent speed as he delivered his second triple of the season in the comfortable win. The 22-year-old is also a perfect 13-for-13 in stolen base attempts this year across 43 games. With Mike Tauchman (groin) on the 10-day injured list, Crow-Armstrong should see more playing time in the short term, and he can make a fantasy impact with his wheels if he's able to consistently get on base. That's been a struggle for the youngster, however, as he has just a .259 on-base percentage.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: On bench against righty

    Crow-Armstrong is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. The lefty-hitting Crow-Armstrong will be on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Miles Mikolas) for the second time in the series. After he was called up from Triple-A Iowa on May 30, Crow-Armstrong had settled into a near-everyday role in center field while the Cubs eased Cody Bellinger back from the injured list by deploying him more frequently at designated hitter, first base and right field. Now that Bellinger is further removed from a fractured rib cage and with first baseman Michael Busch also seemingly regaining the confidence of manager Craig Counsell, Crow-Armstrong could find himself as the odd man out of the Chicago lineup.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Not in Friday's lineup

    Crow-Armstrong is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus the Cardinals. Crow-Armstrong will sit Friday after a run of four straight starts, during which he went 3-for-15 with five strikeouts and two stolen bases. Mike Tauchman will man center field while Cody Bellinger receives a turn as Chicago's designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Hits bench Friday

    Crow-Armstrong is not in the lineup for Friday's game in Cincinnati. Tough southpaw Nick Lodolo is starting for the Reds, so the lefty-hitting Crow-Armstrong will begin the contest on the bench. The rookie outfielder has started just two of the last five games. Cody Bellinger will be in center field for the Cubs on Friday.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: On bench Wednesday

    Crow-Armstrong is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox. Crow-Armstrong started the previous four games against a right-handed pitcher, but he'll take a seat Wednesday with righty Erick Fedde starting for the White Sox. Cody Bellinger will move to center field while Michael Busch mans first base.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Launches first-career homer

    Crow-Armstrong went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Thursday's 3-1 win over the Astros. Crow-Armstrong went yard in his third at-bat of 2024, tagging Bryan Abreu for a two-run shot in the sixth inning as his first career long ball. One of the top prospects in the Cubs system, Crow-Armstrong failed to collect a hit in 19 plate appearances a season ago and will look to fare better during this MLB stay while Cody Bellinger (ribs) is sidelined.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Joins major-league roster

    Cubs manager Craig Counsell said Crow-Armstrong will be called up from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports. The 22-year-old will join the 26-man active roster as a replacement for Cody Bellinger (ribs), who was placed on the 10-day injured list. Crow-Armstrong has hit just .203/.241/.392 with a 24:3 K:BB over his first 19 games at Iowa this season, but he could still see ample action in center field in Bellinger's place if manager Craig Counsell wants Crow-Armstrong's plus defense in the lineup. Mike Tauchman is also a candidate to see reps in center field.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Shakes off elbow injury

    Crow-Armstrong (elbow) returned to Triple-A Iowa's lineup Wednesday and has appeared in each of the club's last four games, going 2-for-19 with one stolen base and one run. After he was removed from a game last Sunday against Toledo with right elbow soreness, Crow-Armstrong sat out Tuesday but was back in action a day later. Though he's ostensibly healthy, the elbow injury may be affecting his timing at the dish, as he's struck out 11 times in 19 at-bats since making his return.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Minor elbow injury at Triple-A

    Crow-Armstrong was removed from Triple-A Iowa's game Sunday versus Toledo due to right elbow soreness, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Crow-Amstrong banged up the elbow on a dive in a previous game. The Cubs said he was removed as a precaution, so he's seemingly being viewed as day-to-day. Crow-Armstrong is slashing .265/.306/.529 with one home run and four stolen bases in his first nine contests with Iowa this season.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Role could shrink

    With Cody Bellinger returning to the Cubs, Crow-Armstrong may not have a clear path to MLB playing time in 2024, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Bellinger, who agreed to return to the Cubs by signing a three-year, $80 million contract Sunday, will likely see a lot of playing time in center, which is also Crow-Armstrong's natural position. Veteran Mike Tauchman may be the top option to spell Bellinger when he rests or shifts over to first base, which could push Crow-Armstrong out of the fold. The 22-year-old still has plenty of upside and should get his shot with the Cubs soon enough.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Remains on bench

    Crow-Armstrong is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's contest with Arizona. Crow-Armstrong will remain on the bench for a third consecutive game Sunday as Mike Tauchman draws another start in center field. The 21-year-old may be on the short side of a platoon in the outfield for the time being.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Sits again Saturday

    Crow-Armstrong remains on the bench for Saturday's game against Arizona. Crow-Armstrong started a pair of games earlier in the week after earning his first career call-up, but he's now been on the bench for two games in a row. He's gone 0-for-7 at the plate with three strikeouts and is 0-for-1 on the basepaths, so he's yet to do much in very limited action to suggest he should be playing everyday for a potential playoff team. Mike Tauchman starts in center field Saturday.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Officially joins big club

    The Cubs selected Crow-Armstrong's contract from Triple-A Iowa on Monday. Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reported earlier that Crow-Armstrong would likely be activated Tuesday, but the Cubs will make the 21-year-old outfielder's promotion official ahead of Monday's series opener versus the Rockies. The lefty-hitting Crow-Armstrong is not in the lineup Monday against southpaw Kyle Freeland, but Crow-Armstrong should play regularly in center field when the Cubs oppose right-handers. Between stops at Iowa and Double-A Tennessee this season, Crow-Armstrong hit .283 with 20 home runs and 37 stolen bases over 500 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Pete Crow-Armstrong: Getting call to majors

    The Cubs plan to call up Crow-Armstrong from Triple-A Iowa prior to Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. The 21-year-old will make his first trip to the big leagues this week, with his arrival expected to bolster the Cubs as they prepare for a playoff run. He's expected to immediately settle in as an everyday player in center field, where he already profiles as a potential Gold Glove-caliber defender. Crow-Armstrong has also displayed some growth as a hitter in 2023 while splitting time between Iowa and Double-A Tennessee, slashing .283/.365/.511 to go with 20 home runs and 37 stolen bases in 47 attempts. Expect the Cubs to deploy Crow-Armstrong near the bottom of the lineup, though if he can keep his strikeouts in check and continue to get on base at a steady clip like he has in the minors, he should have ample opportunities to put his speed on display in September.
