There's really no telling if he'll have an OF spot next year, right now I'd say it's about 50/50. I wouldn't look for anything big from him next year even if he does start but for the years after watch out, he could end up being a pretty good player.
I don't quite think he'll make a starting spot next year. He'll be on the team as a 4th OF and if someone goes down he'll get his shot. He's 25 which actually helps his case because he isn't going to be star so the Cubs can use him in his prime years now.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
