2014 Top 30 Cubs Prospects

The first thing I’m going to say about this list is… “Wow, that was difficult.” The Cubs minor league system has a lot of depth, it was hard to pick just 30 prospects without saying, “Dang, why didn’t I put him in, or how did I overlook this guy.” But after a little tinkering (which I could do for weeks) I am really happy with my final list. Keep in mind this is just the appetizer, where I show the overview of my Top 30 prospects. Throughout the rest of the week I will get to the meat and potatoes portion of my Top 30 Cubs Prospects list where I highlight and give as much detail as I can about each of the prospects in a 3 part series. So without further adieu here is my list:

  1. Javier Baez
  2. Kris Bryant
  3. Albert Almora
  4. Jorge Soler
  5. CJ Edwards
  6. Arismendy Alcantara
  7. Pierce Johnson
