Albert Almora Career Details
The young star was selected by Chicago Cubs out of Mater Academy Charter School with the sixth overall selection, in the MLB draft. He received a $3.9 signing bonus and in 2013, a year after being signed to the Cubs, MLB.com ranked him as the second-best prospect in the Cubs organization and 39th all over baseball.
Almora spent time in the minor league between 2012-2013 with both AZL and Boise, batting average .321 with two home runs and 19 RBIs in just 33 games. He also played 61 games for Kane County Cougars batting average .329. He missed quite a number of matches due to injury and the Cubs decided to sign him to the Arizona Fall League.
Other teams that he featured in the minor league include Daytona Cubs, Tennessee Smokies (2014), and Iowa Cubs (2016). After gaining the required experience, Amora was promoted to the cubs.
He got his first major league hit in his debut against the Philadelphia Phillies on 8th June 2016, a day after being promoted. In November the same year, the Cubs earned their first World Series victory since 1908 thanks to Almora’s astonishing skills. Here is the summary of some of his crucial stats with Chicago Cubs.
He never made a full appearance in the 2020 season as the club declined to offer another contract. He was rejected along with another Chicago Cubs historic player Kyle Schwarber. That clearly indicates that Almora career is in the decline.
We will update every decision he will make to revive his expectations. For now, we don’t have information on the club he has signed for after his Chicago Cubs contract ended.
