Since his July 19 call-up, outfielder Junior Lake has fit right into the Cubs’ offense. Though it’s an extremely small sample size, the 23-year-old has a .529/.556/.765 (AVG/OBP/SLG) slash line in 18 plate appearances. He picked up his first career home run Monday night in a 4-2 win over Arizona.

After spending the majority of his minor league career at either shortstop or third base, Lake has been in center field for all four of his major league games—his first four starts at the position since signing with the organization in 2007.
