Major League Baseball’s 25-and-under postseason All-Star team

Outfield: Jorge Soler, Chicago Cubs, current age 23.250

Regular season stats: 101 games, .262/.324/.399, 10 HR, 47 RBI

Postseason stats: .474/.600/1.105, 3 HR, 5 RBI

Yes, you read that correctly. Jorge Soler’s postseason slugging percentage does not start with a decimal point. Soler was hampered by injuries during the regular season, but his potential was on full display in the postseason. Soler was the only member of the Cubs who hit well in the NLCS. He is the final member of a Cubs rookie class on this list. That rookie class — Schwarber, Bryant, Soler — combined to hit 10 home runs in the postseason. The former MLB record for rookie homers in a single postseason was nine. The future for the Cubs is impossibly bright.
