#Cubs Candelario, Contreras honored

Jeimer Candelario and Willson Contreras were named to the Arizona Fall League 2015 All Prospects team. The players were selected by the AFL managers and coaches. Voters were asked to consider their AFL performance and Major League-projectability.

Candelario finished second in the AFL in home runs, extra base hits, and total bases, and was third in hits, doubles and lowest strikeout ratio per plate appearance. He played in the Fall Stars Game and delivered an RBI double. He is ranked 20th on MLB.com’s list of top Cubs prospects. In 21 games, he batted .329 with five home runs, eight doubles and 15 RBIs.

Contreras is 10th on the Cubs’ list of top prospects. The catcher batted .283 in 14 games, hitting three home runs, four doubles and driving in eight runs. His season ended early because of a hamstring injury.
