This spring training has been one marred by injuries and lack of spending. Five Cubs batters are ignoring the noise and having great preseasons so far

1

Mark Zagunis

The outfielder will likely start out in Iowa, but Mark Zagunis has certainly made his case to make the big club. He leads the Chicago Cubs in homers (4) and RBI (12) and is hitting .351 this spring.

Cristian Adames

The former Colorado Rockie has an outside chance of making the Cubs out of camp if Daniel Descalso isn't ready to go on opening day. He's certainly making a case for being on the roster, considering he's hitting .415 and is second on the team in homers (3) and RBI (11). The big strike against him is that he's had several cups of coffee in the bigs and never been particularly good.

Albert Almora

The likely starting centerfielder for the Cubs has been looking to add some pop to his repertoire. He's certainly done it so far. In addition to hitting three home runs and driving in eight runs, he's also hitting .357 this spring. If there is cause for concern, it's the zero walks he's gotten so far in 42 plate appearances.
