Chicago Cubs Top Prospects
Chicago completed their recent ascent to the top win the fifth most wins in franchise history and the most since 1910. The future remains exceptionally bright as a team carried by young talent has the city thinking of a repeat. Kris Bryant is the face of the franchise as he was named the NL MVP in only his second season. The rest of the order is lined with similar young talent including Anthony Rizzo, Addison Russell, Javier Baez, and Kyle Schwarber. While much of the team is built on youth, a veteran pitching staff anchors the defensive end. Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta return to lead the staff, now with Wade Davis and Koji Uehara behind them.
The team has parted ways with prospects like Gleyber Torres, Jorge Soler, and Donnie Dewees to try and solidify the Major League roster. Despite all the moves, the system still offers a handful of top products as Eloy Jimenez, Ian Happ, Dylan Cease, and Duane Underwood all have fans looking towards the future.
