Fantasy Impact:

Almora returned to the game after a brief visit in the training room. The injury does not appear to be serious and Almora should be fine moving forward. “That brick wall does not move -- at all," Cubs Manager David Ross said. "There's a fine line when you're sitting in this seat. You love the mindset of Albert and trying to catch every ball and kind of throwing caution to the wind. And then you're like, 'It's a scrimmage.' You'd like him to be a little more timid, but I don't want to ever take that away from my players.” Almora slashed .236/.271/.381 with 12 homers, 31 RBI, 41 runs and two stolen bases across 339 at-bats in 2019.
