Tied a Knot on his day off:
With seasons running, there aren't many times off for big-league players. So Albert Almora Jr. had to take advantage of the Cubs' first off-day and what did he do? He tied the knot with his girlfriend, Krystal. Well as per his Instagram account, he hitched off.
Almora, who is just 22, forswore social media in 2015 but returned to post an Instagram of his fiancee, Krystal, and their future baby in 2016. He then shared the tweets including Instagram of his post-wedding photo along with his then girlfriend.
Demotion is 'Bittersweet.'
He looked overwhelmed as he got married. But he did receive a harsh gift from ‘The Cubs’. The Cubs demoted Albert Almora Jr. down to Triple-A Iowa just the day after his wedding. Could you believe that?
The Cubs sent Almora to Pacific Coast League just after his marriage by activating Dexter Fowler (hamstring) from the disabled list before 22nd July’s 5-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.
For the matter of fact, this shocker was less than a day after Almora tied his knot. Almora posted a photo on Instagram and Twitter with the caption: “Finally hitched! #MrsAlmora.” Almora married Krystal, and they’re expecting the baby in September this year, the photo suggests.
Teammates Addison Russell, Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber and Justin Grimm along with their wives and girlfriends did attend Almora’s ceremony at a Chicago courthouse.
In the article by csnchicago published on July 22, we discovered that Albert was in positive mood regarding his demotion and engagement. He said:
"I’m confident I can play here, 100 percent. I played like I belong. Like I said when I first got here – what helps me sleep at night is that I played my all. I left it all on the field. I can’t predict what could happen. But I’m happy with where I’m at.”
A star in the making?
The 23-year-old baseball outfitter didn't make a single error in the 41 games he played last season in 2016. He's already destined to become the Cubs' incumbent center fielder.
Dexter Fowler's departure to the Cardinals during the offseason of 2016 only furthered the notion that likely would come one day sooner rather than later. Although the Cubs did sign John Jay, who is Almora's friend and a fellow Miamian, to a one-year contract worth $8 million deal. But the deal was done to provide depth and support during Almora's transition as a superstar. Almora said:
"I'm here to learn, gather a lot of experience from (Jay) and from other players. You might think that's kind of a quote-unquote right answer, but that's the way it is for me. I love this team and what I can bring to it."
During last season, Almora stats read .277 along with three home runs, 14 RBIs and a .763 OPS in 47 games. National League’s MVP Kris Bryant, who roomed with Almora during a couple of past spring training in the team went a step further in his praise. He said:
"He's a star in the making. Everybody has seen what he can do, what he's going to give you on defense. More importantly, you know he's … going to play his heart out every single day."
Well, it seems he is already a star in the making!
