A plus hitter despite his non-conventional approach, Cubs prospect Billy McKinney could be a part of a situational platoon in Wrigley at any time now. Of course, with a bit more development in the minors, he could grow into an everyday player, instead. A solid athlete with better than average speed, McKinney has proven adept all over the outfield, with a good glove, solid range and a pretty-good throwing arm.

Cubs prospect Billy McKinney, the forgotten part of the return for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammell, is slashing .312/.402/.452 after his first 27 games with High-Daytona. If all the positional Cub prospects keep blowing up at the same time like this, some of them will need to be traded-in for pitching soon.

Billy McKinney has been traded to the Cubs as part of the package including ace Jeff Samardzija, according to MLB.com.
