Cubs promoting top prospect Pete Crow-Armstrong to Triple-A Iowa

10 months agoTony Andracki

The Cubs’ top prospect is one step closer to Chicago.

Pete Crow-Armstrong is being promoted to Triple-A Iowa this week, Marquee Sports Network player development analyst Lance Brozdowski has confirmed. (The Athletic’s Sahadev Sharma initially reported the news.)

Iowa is off Monday but Crow-Armstrong is expected to be available on Tuesday for its next game.

Crow-Armstrong turned 21 in March and is widely considered the top prospect in the Cubs system, including on Brozdowski’s 2023 preseason rankings. He lands all the way at No. 7 on MLB Pipeline’s most recent prospect rankings in the game.

The Cubs acquired the outfielder from the New York Mets in the Javy Báez trade in July 2021.

Crow-Armstrong began this season at Double-A Tennessee and has put up strong numbers with a .289/.371/.527 slash line (.898 OPS) with 14 homers, 60 RBI, 27 stolen bases and 68 runs scored.

He has been on fire in July with a .307 AVG, 1.031 OPS, 14 extra-base hits (including 5 homers) and 20 runs in 18 games.

He will join an Iowa outfield that also includes fellow top prospect Alexander Canario (who hit his first Triple-A homer last week) plus Nelson Velázquez and Yonathan Perlaza.
