The Cubs are seeing the fruits of their rebuilding project this season with the promotion of top prospects like Kris Bryant, Addison Russell and Jorge Soler — all of whom MLB.com rated as top-25 prospects at the outset.
But even with those three players having graduated from “prospect” status, the Cubs still have plenty to like down on the farm.
MLB.com updated its list of the top-100 prospects Wednesday, and the midseason rankings still feature five Cubs players.
Recently promoted Kyle Schwarber tops the list of Cubs as the seventh-ranked prospect. Here’s the full rankings of Cubs players:
No. 7 Kyle Schwarber, catcher
No. 36 Gleyber Torres, shortstop
No. 41 Billy McKinney, outfield
No. 66 Carl Edwards Jr., RHP
No. 80 Duane Underwood, RHP
The Dodgers and Twins each have two prospects in the top five. You can see all 100 prospects by clicking here.
The White Sox have three prospects in the top-100, including two players on the back end of the top 50.
Shortstop Tim Anderson checks in at No. 45, and newly drafted pitcher Carson Fulmer is No. 5. Frankie Montas is No. 63.
