Baseball America Updates Its Top 10 Prospect Lists

Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

Following an offseason full of activity, Baseball American has revealed its updated top 10 prospect lists, including the Chicago Cubs. As expected, the only change to the Cubs’ top 10 is the insertion of Anthony Rizzo, who checks in at number three in the system, behind only Brett Jackson and Javier Baez:

1. Brett Jackson, OF

2. Javier Baez, SS

3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B

4. Matt Szczur, OF

5. Trey McNutt, RHP

6. Dillon Maples, RHP

7. Welington Castillo, C

8. Rafael Dolis, RHP

9. Junior Lake, SS

10. Josh Vitters, 3B/1B

You can get a look at each team’s updated top 10 prospects at that link, which is an interesting exercise if done through the lens of “what if the Cubs traded Matt Garza to this team.” Things I notice immediately: Jacob Turner, Nick Castellanos, and Drew Smyly go 1-2-3 in the Tigers’ system, and the Royals’ and Blue Jays’ lists make me drool.
